I'm noticing a gradual transformation of the traditional pantry cabinet taking place; kind of a back-to-basics move. Those towering, deep pull-out units—engineering marvels, in their own way—that were standard issue in so many kitchen of years past are now giving way to full-height, side-hinged compartments. What nice about this design it that it can break free of the main run of cabinets both physically and stylistically, bringing a welcome variety and lightness to the kitchen. atelier-saintpaul.fr
