Lake ViewMediterranean Kitchen, Los Angeles
We added this pantry cabinet in a small nook off the kitchen. The lower cabinet doors have a wire mesh insert. Dutch doors lead to the backyard.

3. Capture the potential of a nearby nook. This open pantry stands in a nook that is just off — but still open to — the kitchen, and next to the home’s back door. The main kitchen cabinetry starts just to the right of the back door pictured here, as this floor plan shows. This off-the-main-path solution is a way to create an open pantry that doesn’t become a notable visual element of the main kitchen. Homeowners and their guests can see the pantry from most parts of the kitchen, but it still has some visual separation from the rest of the room. This would work well for a family that wants an easy-to-access pantry that doesn’t become a design element. See more of this home
6. Extra pantry storage. This nook was too far from the appliances to serve them. So the architect outfitted it with racks for hanging stemware, shelves for staples, and drawers and cabinets for extra storage. The countertop here is mostly used for display and allowed for a beadboard backing that harks back to the home’s original architecture.
This area had been an awkward hallway at the top of the basement stairs. Troyer opened it up to the kitchen and created a charming pantry nook, complete with wire mesh doors. The beadboard is new but matches some of the home’s original paneling. The architect also added the Dutch door, which leads to the backyard.
