If you are remodeling your kitchen and find yourself with a little extra room in the corner, you may be debating whether to but in a new pantry. If so, you have a decision to make. The design of a cabinet-style pantry may be the most economical as far as space is concerned, but there are many benefits of a larger walk-in pantry that you should consider when designing your new kitchen.
The difference in capacity comes in handy
Walk-in pantries have walking space between the shelves, but they also have space for additional capacity in case you wish to store bulk items such as those available for purchase at warehouse clubs. When combined with shelf space that can stretch from floor to ceiling on each side you will also have excess shelf space for larger storage items such as spinning spice racks or Lazy Susans.
Customized shelf space provides more options for appliances
Many of the most useful appliances that you can use in the kitchen are often too large for a typical cabinet. Larger appliances like crock pots, waffle makers, mixers, and grills can present a storage problem in average-sized cabinets. A walk-in gives you more options when it comes to spacing out your shelves and determining the square inches of each individual shelf. It also makes retrieval of heavier appliances much easier as they can be placed at eye level instead of reaching for a top shelf or stooping down to a larger pan cabinet.
Centralized storage helps with organization
A walk-in can help you organize your pantry the way that you want it, with a centralized retrieval point that helps keep more of the items that you use most often front and center. Cabinet pantries have a way of burying items in the back of the shelf and it always seems to be the one that you need the most.
