Pantry Insulation

Looking to insulate the back wall of pantries and cupboards because they get pretty warm in the summer. I was thinking of using dual reflective insulation but that is supposed to be stapled in place. The recommendation is to use 1/2 staples. I would consider using foam board insulation but need to figure how I would attach/stick that to the walls too.

Not knowing how thick the wallboard is at the back the cupboards and such, I was wondering if any sees any possibility that the staples might be a problem?

Any other suggestions welcome.

Don, have you thought about two sided tape? Have used that for different applications and if you buy the correct grade you may be surprised at the success you will have with it.

I haven't ruled that out. I am a tad concerned that it might do damage to the wall board if pulled off. However, I would hope I would never have to do that and any future owner would appreciate the work. LOL

Staples would be easy to pull out and probably not leave any visible evidence. Again, not sure why I would do that either.

How about using Velcro glued to the back of the insulation and interior wall of the pantry just in case you have to access that outside wall?

Cut a piece of 1 inch Styrofoam about 1/16 inch larger the the back wall, all four sides. Then use contact paper, wood grain, pattern, whatever, and stick it to the styrofoam. Push the styrofoam into place against the back wall. Friction will hold it in place.

Just put a few dabs of silicone adhesive on the back of the Reflectix insulation. It will hold it securely in place, but can be removed easily without damaging the wall.

I'm not familiar with that but sounds like it might work!
