One of the coolest features that I find to be a pleasant surprise when we’re out looking at homes are walk-in hidden kitchen pantries.
Not only are walk-in hidden kitchen pantries a cool feature but they are convenient, they blend in with the rest of the kitchen and they also have plenty of storage.
I’ve got a few photos of walk-in hidden pantries to show you to give you some ideas.
I’m not really sure why I don’t see more of this type of kitchen pantry in new homes. Who wouldn’t want a custom feature like this? I can’t see it being cost prohibitive because it’s simply an entrance to a room through the cabinetry.
Proper planning and design are all that is needed to have one of the coolest kitchen features around! It seems to me that this is an affordable luxury if you’re in the design/planning stage of building a new home.
The only feature of these pantries that I would change is to get rid of the cheap wire shelving. Does anyone really prefer wire shelving over wood shelves?

I started as a home-stalker… visiting brand new homes under construction in the neighborhoods near my house. That inspired me to write about home building and home renovation projects — chronicling homes during different phases of construction from a consumer's point-of-view. Basically, the tips you'll find in my articles are a collection of checklists for what I think should (and should not) go into building or remodeling a quality home.
