Planning a pantry? Check out the gallery of GW pantries! The thread below contains pantry pictures as well as design advice:


National Kitchen and Bath Association's (NKBA) Kitchen Planning Guidelines

http://www.nkba.org/guidelines/kitchen.aspx Note: As of June 2010 or so, the NKBA began to deny access to their guidelines unless you join the NKBA (for a fee) or order a copy of the guidelines (again, for a fee). I still have the link here in case they decide to make this information available to non-members again.

Some organizations have posted the guidelines online or in a document you can download for free. To find them, search the web (e.g., with Google) using the following search criteria: "Kitchen and Bath Planning Guidelines".
