I have had a walk-in pantry and a walk-in closet, once in my life, not in the same place.  I would say that besides a breakfast room, a walk in closet is second on my dream house wish list.  Would it be greedy to wish for a walk-in closet, walk-in pantry and a breakfast room? {As a very good friend used to say, “If you’re going to dream, dream big!”}

So while perusing the ultimate resource for stimulating ideas, Pinterest, I re-pinned a few and thought I share those that had me at the door to their splendor…

I might as well start with the most elaborate of the lot…I’m not sure I have that many pairs of shoes but it would be so nice to see all of your shoe choices with one glance.

This is small but I like the quasi vanity at the back of the closet.

Lighting would be crucial, I love the idea of the glass doors keeping things orderly.

I know this is a man’s closet, but I like the layout and it would be nice to have my favorite design books at my fingertips.

A jewelry drawer would be fabulous!

and finally, to decorate any blank wall in your walk-in closet you could do this…note:  I think I have a Tiffany Bag hanging around, I’d have to ask Chanel and Hermes for a bag! lol

There is equal interest in a walk-in pantry for my kitchen, again, it doesn’t have to be huge, but boy, would it be nice…

I love the way this door looks like cabinetry in the kitchen but serves as the door to the walk-in pantry!

A pantry behind a sliding door is very cool, it looks like the ‘fridge is in the pantry, not sure about that feature, wouldn’t that be inconvenient?  Maybe its the back-up refrigerator.

This is something we didn’t add when we remodeled our kitchen, and I realize it’s a little off topic as far as walk-in pantries go, but maybe you can imagine this drawer would be located inside a walk-in pantry…10-organization greige via design chic 1.1.13{Griege}

Again, sliding doors, and as you can see this walk-in pantry doesn’t take much space…maybe if we add the breakfast room we can incorporate a space like this.


I’m not sure you can see it well in this image, but there’s a really great door on this pantry with leaded glass.  The pantry is waiting for me to load it with all my stuff.

This one is so well accessorized, it almost looks like a small butler’s pantry.

Maybe if I had a bank of cupboards like this I wouldn’t need a walk-in pantry, although there would have to be solid doors, my pantry never seems view-worthy!

Do you have a walk-in closet and/or pantry?  Do you consider it one of the major benefits of your home?  [I think I know the answer to that last question, but I’d still love to hear from you]. ♥
