I started the design for my walk in pantry about a year before our builder even thought about putting down a foundation. I made lists upon lists of what people keep in a pantry and took photos of the inside of ‘real’ pantries everywhere I went because I was determined not to miss anything and not have a spot for it. So let’s just say, I’ve done all the hard work for you! Keep scrolling to see the final plans and scroll even further to see all my scribbles and lists where I was going to store things! Keep in mind, this was our first home together and I was very excited to move in so I made all these plans and lists as a distraction from having to wait for AGES.

When I was finally happy with my shelving design, I would spend hours ‘virtually’ re-arranging the non existent contents of my pantry and then shopped for suitable containers so I could size the depth of the shelving accordingly and maximise all the space I could.
To me, there was nothing worse than having to reach into a deep shelf to find something in the back, and I knew that once we had children, shoving things into shelves is exactly how you get clutter. So, after careful consideration, I invested in numerous sets of the OXO pop containers and confirmed the depth of my ‘OXO’ shelves to be 15cms.
We then met with our joiner who, if you’re in Adelaide, I would very much recommend, to show him our plans and get things going. The below images are the latest copies I have of what was built, with sizing and measurements for your consideration.
