Recently, I’ve done several projects where we were limited in pantry space. Their walk-in pantries were too small and just weren’t working for the homeowners.
With a limited footprint, it helps to see how you can get unused square footage out of a space. In this particular walk-in pantry, the unused square footage is:
The open space that you stand in when you’re looking around to see what’s in there.
Cutting that out of the equation, a wall of cabinets actually does a better job of providing storage solutions than the walk-in.
With pull-outs and special shelving, you can customize a space like this to be very accessible, as well as give you more storage than you thought possible.
Here, take a look at a few of these pantry projects where I did just that:

Right now, I’m working on another one where we have the same problem (below). The storage above the doors isn’t being used, nor is the full depth of the pantry.
And here it is ripped out and opened up (above).
Here's (right) how we designed it to be built in place of the walk-in (click image to open full-screen):
And here it is, completed (right). :-)
See how effective pantries in the cabinetry can create storage space in a tight footprint!
Still don't believe me? Then check out some more inspiring examples down below. The storage they create is just amazing!
