Vancouver Maple is one of
the most sold melamine
boards on the market. This
kitchen remodel was done
using that and Karoo Ice
granite to compliment the
maple. Allot of pot drawer
cabinets as well as spice
drawer cabinets were added
to the floor units for easy
access to the items stored.
A huge corner pantry with
cross shelving was also
installed to make the corner
more reachable. The auto
open bin was installed under
the prep bowl for disperse of
vegetable peels when 
peeling them.

Pantry kitchen cabinet

The pantry kitchen cabinet

Pantry kitchen cabinet with cross shelving

The pantry kitchen cupboard is used to store grocceries in. This kitchen unit can be custom made in a width of 1000mm to 1300mm. The wider the pantry the wider the cupboard doors will be and the easier you will be able to reach inside and acces the grocceries. Notice the cris cross shelves inside the pantry. They overlap one another allowing for more space and more functionality. The pantry kitchen cabinet has shelves which are 250mm in depth allowing for ample storage space. Just remember,if the shelves become to deep the space inside the pantry becomes smaller.I good height to make the pantry kitchen cabinet is 2300mm.This will give you allot of shelving for packing and storage.Remember to fit a 45 degrees hinge on the cabinet carcase to fit the door to otherwise you will have the fitt a upright 90 degrees with the door to fitt the door too.This specific kitchen has a kitchen pantry that is built in the corner of the kitchen.You also get a pantry cabinet that you build against a straight wall.You would normaly make the cabinet anything from 700mm to 1200mm in width for maximum space utility.Remember to make sure that the shelves of the kitchen pantry are at least 300mm away from one another otherwise the condoments wont fit on the shelves.If you have abit of extra money to spend on the kitchen you can build a kitchen pantry and fitt a stainless steel laader unit in it.Just make sure that the cabinet height is at least 1936mm.A good laader unit will set you back about R3000 but makes life very easy in the kitchen.Not to mention the sleak look it leaves.Always use a solid melamine chipboard back for the pantry so as to fitt the shelves against.This will also make the cabinet structure stronger and last longer.When you build the kitchen , make sure you start with the kitchen pantry cabinet first because this is probably the most difficult base unit to fitt and level.After you have made 100% sure that the cabinet is level you can line up and fix the other units to the pantry unit.Remmember that the floor of the kitchen as well as the walls and roof is always skew so dont assume the kitchen pantry cabinet is straight.....know its straight.
