This used to be a broom closet. It was 2 long doors. I had my friend cut the doors and add seeded glass. With a kitchen this small, I needed all the cupboard/storage space I could get and a broom closet was the last thing I needed. I use it to store my collection of crock bowls and tins. I hide baking supplies in the tins and use the pantry jars for dry goods. It just wouldn’t do it justice to have canned goods in there.
So, now to put it in perspective for you. The next pictures is from the back porch, which we use as the main entrance into the house. You walk up 2 steps to get to the kitchen. I was standing on a step to take this picture. The pantry is to my left and the fridge to the right.
And this is from the same doorway. You can see the chrome of the fridge, which defines the size. You can literally wash dishes and flip pancakes at the same time.
