Original pantry with shelves in a 1950s house in need of update.
There was a mains gas pipe around the interior of the pantry to be avoided, and control panels at the top of the cupboard to be accessed regularly.
I decided to make two thirds height as really deep drawers to make the most of the pantry depth, then the last third would be accessed by doors, to keep kitchen equipment and cereals etc
The original shelving
door removed and shelves stripped out.
Frame and drawers fitted.
700mm deep drawers mean huge amounts of very accessible storage space compared to original shelving.
