As part of our kitchen renovation, we are demolishing our current pantry closet and replacing it with cabinetry. Our new kitchen will have a pantry cabinet in another part of the kitchen. We want to put upper and lower cabinets in the location of our current pantry. The current closet pantry measures about 16 inches from the wall. Due to the detentions of the kitchen we don't want to make the base cabinets substantially deeper or we won't have enough space for our eat in area.
So my question is this: will it work if we do 18 inch base cabinets and 12 inch wall cabinets? Concerned about headspace.
Also, the company we are going with does not have 18 inch base cabinets standard, so the price will increase with this modification and we would prefer not to modify both upper and lower cabinets.
Otherwise we might be able to do 18 inch base cabinets and 9 inch wall cabinets. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks!
