Shal­low shelves – only 200mm deep – en­sure pantry sta­ples are eas­ily seen. “If you’ve got the space, it’s great to be able to walk into the pantry and see ev­ery­thing,” says Jane. “When you’ve got shelves that are maybe 400mm deep, you can be look­ing for a jar of sauce and end up giv­ing up!” Not ev­ery­thing in this zone is wor­thy of dis­play – most homes have at least one can of baked beans to ev­ery Ma­son jar of ar­ti­sanal pasta – and Jane’s pantry is no dif­fer­ent. “The shelves to the right have all the cans, jars of Vegemite and what­ever, and these can’t be seen when you’re stand­ing in the kitchen,” she ex­plains. Deep draw­ers be­low the bench are great for hid­ing larger items like ce­real boxes.
