Still, they knew they wanted more. More shelves, more drawers. More matching containers and baskets.
One downside of this solution that should be noted is the loss of some counter space, compared to using standard upper and lower cabinets with a stretch of counter between.
The super pantry, as Aplanalp-Yates describes it, is so much more than a place to store food. It's a pantry, butler's pantry, catering kitchen and linen closet all in one.
Architects, builders and designers are all paying more attention to storage spaces: We want our kitchen pantries to be larger, more functional and more attractive.
In place of a counter, Vitzthum often places a shallower upper cabinet on top of a slightly deeper, 30-inch base cabinet. “You don’t want to waste prime storage space, which typically ranges from two feet off the ground up to six feet, with unnecessary counter space,” she cautions.
Depending on their owners’ needs, walk-in pantries often blur the line between food pantry, china cabinet, prep area, and bar. For a home on New Hampshire’s Lake Winnipesaukee, Crown Point Cabinetry designer Karen Laskoske oriented the pantry’s cabinet design around dishes and serving ware. One factor contributing to this arrangement was the lack of a buffet or hutch in the dining room.
