A successful walk-in pantry represents the ultimate in luxe storage space, with room to hide away dry goods and the ability to keep the main kitchen clean and clutter free – we round up 10 exceptional designs.
1. This pantry by Tom Howley is designed to co-ordinate with the luxury Avocado green main kitchen in Hartford Shaker cabinetry, and cleverly concealed when not in use. The space features enough work surface to display all the homeowner's small appliances, and a pantry system with handcrafted racks and shelves to house jars, spices and herbs, while wicker baskets are perfect for storing fruit and vegetables.
2. A walk-in pantry doesn't need to be concealed – in fact, adding glass doors can be a way of showing it off, and clever lighting can also be a key factor in creating a statement space. Here LED lights illuminate Masterclass Kitchens' H Line Madoc Reclaimed Oak with Portland Oak wine rack and shelving.
3. This pantry by DeVol features its Haberdasher's Kitchen, and is separated from the main space by a glass partition. While the primary area features the company's Classic English cabinetry, the pantry is the perfect showcase for DeVol's the mid-century style oak cupboards, which are inspired by an English gentlemen’s haberdashery, and create a hardworking but organised pantry system.
4. Designed by Martin Moore, this pantry is in the same teal blue scheme as the main kitchen area for cohesion, but features a pop of colour with cream and pink encaustic tiles for added visual impact. Separated from the main area by a sliding door that offers instant easy access, it has a neat handwashing area and extra prep space, as well as room to store away jars and boxes.
5. This pantry, which is separated from the main kitchen by double glass doors, features the Hathaway pantry system from Masterclass Kitchens, shown in Ashbourne Windsor Blue with White, and Portland Oak. Available in six widths, from 400mm to 1,200mm, and with practical shelving, crate drawers, bottle pigeonholes, and a box wine rack, there's ample room to store and access all kitchen essentials.
6. Martin Moore's English collection pantry just off the main kitchen, features traditional cool shelves in Carrara marble, hand-painted in Martin Moore’s Putty paint. The long open shelves above the worktop provide storage for oils, preserves and dry ingredients, while the shelves below hold large pieces of cookware. Wicker baskets beneath provide storage for root vegetables.
7. This bespoke pantry from Martin Moore’s New Deco collection is such a hardworking space it almost doubles as a utility room. Handpainted in Martin Moore’s Mid Grey with Walnut shelving and pull-out crates, it provides plenty of useful storage. The Butler sink means the family can stash away empty plates after use, while the wall sockets are handy for small appliances. A stacked washing machine and tumble dryer are housed within a tall cupboard, so together with the pulley clothes airer above, they offer the perfect laundry facilities.
8. This luxe pantry by DeVol features the company's Real Shaker cabinetry in dark green paired with hand-made Emerald Green London tiles, and offers plenty of room for storage along with a handy Belfast sink. A brass tap and co-ordinating fixtures and fittings elevate the space, and warm wooden worktops add visual harmony.
9. Here a Martin Moore walk-in pantry features the New Classic collection cabinetry handpainted in the company’s French Blue paint. The same cabinetry, colour scheme, marble worktops and flooring were used in both the pantry and the kitchen, helping to maintain visual unity across the rooms. Open-fronted recessed shelves provide storage for oils, condiments and dry ingredients and floor-to-ceiling cupboards store larger household items.
10. This elegant pantry by The Myers Touch is perfect for hiding away glasses, cutlery and crockery, as well as plenty of tins and dry food packets. Its presence enables the homeowners to keep the crisp and clean main kitchen neat and tidy, especially while entertaining around the kitchen island. When not in use, the pantry door can be closed so it blends seamlessly with the rest of the space.
