Shelf depth/height for non walkin pantry
Our pantry is a space built over the basement steps. It starts at 34" from the floor and goes up to a 8' ceiling. It's 23" deep. What we just took out was 2 wire shelves 12" deep. DH both agree to do wood shelves.
I want 3 shelves the bottom 12" deep, then two shelves above 9" deep. Each shelf about 12" high. Too much got shoved in the back of the deep shelves and I would have to look through the wires to see what was in the back of the top one. The pantry was always a mess.
DH wants to do what we had only in wood.
Considering what I want to store there. Cereal boxes, canned goods, snacks. I think my idea makes sense.
Attached it a web site about pantries and show a diagram where I got the idea of the upper shelves being only 9 " deep.
Please tell me what you think.
