If you have a nearby island to act as prep space, losing a little counter may be well worth the trade-off.
If the converted space is large enough — and especially if you can route in water lines for a sink — the new pantry can also work as a prep station for a second chef.
For modest homes, pantries work well when they double as circulation space, says architect Sandra Vitzthum of Montpelier, Vermont. Her designs commonly line a short hallway with pantry-style storage cabinets, forming a dual-use area.
Rather than adding an actual cabinet, you can convert a closet into a pantry by adding a variety of shelves or drawers to allow for storage of smaller items.
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.
