Why did house builders stop putting pantries in houses. They kept things cool and prevented clutter in the one room of the house where you really don't want it. My ideal kitchen has to have one of these!
English style, a larder cabinet pantry
My kitchen, yet another angle and still tidy :-), Work surfaces are white Corian and full stave oak, timber inframe kitchen painted in pavilion grey with polished nickel furniture
For the Shaker Kitchen we added a tasty cupboard to cram all of those kitchen goodies into.
