Kitchen pantry design and organization requires a personalized approach -- budget, size and aesthetic depend on what you need. What is your pantry right now: a compilation of shelves or a walk-in closet? How much space do you have to remodel and renovate? What is the storage used for and how do you want it optimized?
Rather than adding a full set of cabinets to a wall, consider using a single cabinet (either a built-in or a standalone unit safely anchored to the wall) to create a pantry without filling in a whole wall.
For a more traditional look, a relatively small bit of construction can convert a typical doored closet into a niche for a pantry cabinet — either a custom-sized unit or a few prefab cabinets with slim filler panels on the ends to give a seamless look.
Looking to make some bold changes during a renovation? Converting an extra room off a kitchen into a pantry may be a better use of space than, say, a rarely used breakfast nook or den, especially if you realistically find yourself spending more time in the kitchen itself.
The design of your pantry should focus on visibility. Smaller items, like bottles and spice containers, could be on a rotating table or on a door rack. If you have the space, you could install a lazy susan or a riser shelf. You can also reinstall shelving for easy reach if they're too high, so feel free to do it yourself or hire a cabinet professional to help you.
However, using a tall full-depth cabinet provides a great deal more storage capacity and gives the kitchen a weighty and mature air. Plus, it gives you more surface area to paint in a rich hue if you so choose.
