I couldn't find any pictures but if you are somewhat handy, you could cut down the depth of the pantry's. By removing the face frame on the front of the cabinet from the sides and cut down the sides and reattach. You would either need to drill new holes for the shelf supports or put in shelving uprights and get the clips that go with them to support the shelves. Also, you will need to rip the shelves down to the width that fits your new pantry depth.

I would find it easier to rip down the back of the pantry and leave the face frame intact. You will have to attach a back to the cabinet. I would make it 3/4" flush with the back and use a pocket cutter in order to attach it invisibly from the rear. That would be the most secure since you could use screws. You will also have to rip down the toe kick.

Since the cabinets go to the ceiling I'm assuming the toe kick is separate. If not and you managed to slide the cabinet in with an attached toe it would be pretty difficult to trim it any other way than from the back since the toe kick would be involved.

Or you could take it to a cabinet shop and have them do it.

Or you cut your losses and try to sell it and buy another one.

We recently redid our kitchen and bought 24" deep pantries but had our contractor cut them down to 16" (so we could maintain a traffic flow between pantry & island. Worked out fine. Pantry is on wall behind island.

We have used a white quartz counter top in the bathroom before and it went nicely with a light stained double sink vanity. Man made materials hold up well and we are beginning to see colors that mimic natural stone. Quartz Masters Quartz recently came out with colors that are close to Calcutta Grey and Calcutta Gold marble to give you an example. I would stay away from natural stone counter tops unless you are very careful about what you put on it and seal it regularly. Even if the natural stone is sealed, oils can still penetrate into the stone if left on for a while.

I had white quartz with very fine, subtle gray speckles (Caesarstone Blizzard) in my previous master bath and guest bath, and it was terrific. Doesn't show toothpaste, or my silver gray hair...

I only roast marshmallows - no matter what type of fire!

I'm a country gal, so I love the smell of firewood. There's nothing like it for a cool evening with family and friends.

A fire pit would greatly add to the tone set by the running water of waterfall and stream, as well as any pool or hot tub in the yard. Not to mention, adding a walkway to follow along the stream would really top things off.
