Having a walk-in pantry is a luxury. Many of the kitchen remodels I have been designing lately have not been able to afford such a luxury due to space limitations. Instead the client has opted for tall pantry storage, which is still essential even if it means forgoing upper and lower cabinets, and using a portion of counter space to accommodate tall pantry storage. But with one exceptional client, she has not only room for a butler's pantry - but also a walk-in pantry. Because this is a room in itself - the idea came into play: how do we make this room a beautiful space? I think the images here provide some great inspiration (the above picture being my favorite)!
