Is a corner pantry old fashion?
Rocio CarrionJanuary 12, 2014
Hi! We r trying to renovate our kitchen and lady from the kitchen design said that we shouldn't have a corner pantry cause it's all fashion, and if we have a normal square pantry will look nit and tidy. Unfortunately our kitchen is very little so we need as much storage as possible. Pls let me know

Square or rectangular pantries are great, but if you don't have enough room, what does it matter. I have a corner walk-in pantry and I love it. If my kitchen area was much larger I would love to have a square one, but it isn't and doesn't need to be so a corner pantry is perfect.

Also, a corner pantry at least puts the corner to good use, instead of cupboards and cabinets that make it impossible to locate stuff.

Hi :) we have a tiny kitchen and a corner pantry (full height but not walk in). It's a pain trying to get into the corners but I've put everything in storage crates and store stuff that isn't used regularly in the corner. It does make good use of the space if its limited. I have seen corner drawers which make use of that space too.

Placement of things should be dictated by function of the kitchen.

Who cares if it works : ) Not old fashioned. Corner cabinets are made for corners in other rooms of a home too!

It's not old fashioned. It's using space. :) If all the room you have is for a corner one, install a corner one.

Corner pantry is quite functional, you can have the doors at 90 degree instead of being angled to save on some space.

I'd fire that kitchen design person lol. No such thing as a corner pantry being outdated. I would bet she is new to the biz and has no real clue. If you have the space, then go for it. I have a closet in my kitchen that is considered a pantry, but kinda wish it was just a large floor to ceiling cabinet. I have a base and wall corner cabinet that I started to use for mostly canned and dry foods and it works much better because it's closer to my stove. Whatever works for you the way you use your kitchen would be the way to go :)

I'm going with what Dytecture posted with a 2 tier shelf, lazy suzans and it will light up when we open the door. My husband will be doing the electric for the lighting.
