This past June I visited a friend at her new home in Utah. She gave me a tour of her house and I was amazed at the layout and design as it was nestled into a mountainside.
She saved her favorite room for the end of the tour: the walk-in pantry. She had asked the builder to give her about 8 feet of the garage space (the back section) and to put up another wall. These updates made the pantry big enough to fit a twin-sized bed!
The kitchen pantry was approximately 15 feet long by 8 feet wide and it had 10 foot ceilings. This additional space was a great surprise as the house already had about 3,200 liveable square feet!
Now when my friend makes trips to Costco and BJ’s, she never runs into an issue since there is plenty of space for bulk items. The location is also ideal as the main door is right off the kitchen and it is also accessible from the garage.
After visiting my friend and seeing her new space, I felt inspired. I returned home reflecting on how I could optimize my own kitchen pantry and storage space.
