Help with my first ever "walk-in" pantry design!

9 years ago

Hi all-
My kitchen/mudroom/laundry remodel is moving along really well. Cabinetry install is Monday!!!

I now have a lovely stand-in pantry in our mudroom and I'd like to maximize the space (flooring goes in tomorrow!). I'm calling it a stand in because once the shelves are up you will barely be able to take a step! I don't want it to feel like a coffin but i want to cram as much in there as I can! We have a pullout pantry in the kitchen for everyday items so this will hold bulk items from costco like soda, water, beer, paper towels and stuff we don't use everyday (cans, baking items).

What are your suggestions on shelving? We have shelving included in our design build contract and it will be basic adjustable shelving. Need suggestions on depth of shelves and how deep I can go without making it a non-walk in.

I measured it as 64" wide x36" deep. 14" on each side to the door casing. 8ft ceilings. I can also use the inside of the door for storage... i like the elfa options.

Thank you so much!
