To pantry or not to pantry, that is the question...

r m
last year

We are building a home in the Pacific Northwest this spring: we really wanted a walk-in pantry, but it left the kitchen rather long and narrow, feeling almost like a galley kitchen (top layout).

By omitting the pantry we could gain some breathing room in the kitchen, plus an extra foot or so in the small guest bathroom. We could make up some of the lost storage space with an island, and tall cabinets in the mudroom (bottom layout).

Any comments or suggestions on the floor plan would be appreciated....
