A slim pantry cabinet is a brilliant way to utilize what might seem like an unusable area. Those few inches besides the fridge or a small area near the corner of an existing cupboard can now be used for storage. On rollers, fixed in place, or even with an installed glide mechanism, these practical storage options will change the way you view "wasted space".

Slim Kitchen Cabinet
What We Like: Adjustable shelves
Perfect For: Storing heavy items
Crafted from high-quality engineered wood, it comes with a sleek, traditional white finish that adds a touch of charm to your home. The upper cabinet features two glass-paneled doors and three long shelves, while the lower section has double doors providing out-of-sight storage. With ten shelves, you can keep food and condiments organized, and the adjustable shelf means you can accommodate small appliances.
To balance out the white color and give the space a modern update, consider adding contrasting elements in your kitchen, such as black or metallic accents. For example, black pendant lights, brushed nickel drawer pulls, or a stainless steel sink can add some interest and depth to the space.

6 or 8 inch deep pantry cabinet
Is your kitchen a bit too narrow? Then look for even more space-saving designs like 8- or 6-inch-deep pantry cabinets.
We especially recommend the former if you’d like to store some 8-inch dinner plates and the latter for smaller items like canister sets, jars, and bottles.
12 inch pantry cabinet with drawer
While open shelves have their own charm, slim kitchen cabinets with a closed design are your best friends if you hate clutter and would rather keep your food items and kitchen equipment behind some cupboards.
But why not add a drawer too? This design is ideal to store items that you tend to pile up, like table cloths, or to get a good one-glance overview of lots of smaller ones, like spices.
12 inch deep pantry cabinet
When you think that traditional dinner plates are around 10.5-11 inches big, it’s easy to see why a 12-inch-deep pantry cabinet will work wonders in your kitchen.
It’ll fit your most important items like a glove without taking up more depth than needed.
For example, these fairly shallow pantry cabinets would allow you to store a couple of rows of jars or canisters as well as entire glassware sets, too.
Narrow cabinet next to stove
Did you know that you could find deeper cabinets that are less than 6-inch wide?
This magical trick will allow you to utilize that wasted space in between your stove and another piece of furniture.
By choosing a cart-style cabinet with wheels, you can keep your less glamorous items out of sight but always at hand.
Extremely narrow pull out cabinet in a taller design
Another way of turning that tiny space in between two pieces of furniture into a pantry is to opt for a taller but extremely narrow design. How about one that’s under 5 inches in width?
This solution is a gamechanger in modern flats where space is often a hair-pulling problem, and it’ll allow you to store a mixture of smaller and taller items, from spices to bottles.
Slim pantry cupboard to match the rest of your kitchen
Unless you’re planning on placing your thin pantry cabinet on the opposite side of your kitchen, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to match it with the rest of your cupboards and furniture.
Just look for the exact same color or a similar design and details like these matching handles.
Less than 8 inch wide cabinet with drawers
8-inch-wide cabinets (or even thinner!) will fit virtually anywhere in your kitchen.
While traditional open shelves or cupboards are still popular options, keep in mind that drawers are the most practical storage solution to optimize a slimmer but deeper cabinet.
Thin kitchen cabinet for taller items
If you don’t think you’ll need that many shelves or are worried that your taller items won’t fit in traditional pantry models, you can also look for narrow kitchen cabinets with two compartments.
Alternatively, they’re super practical if you were hoping to combine them with a pull-out storage solution, too.
Very narrow kitchen cabinet looking just like traditional furniture
While slim storage cabinets are primarily practical pieces of furniture, that’s not to say that they can’t look pleasantly decorative, too.
From raised panels to ornate shapes and slatted doors, consider looking for a narrow kitchen cabinet that could easily be mistaken for a traditional furniture piece.
Shallow pantry cabinet as a corner model with closed cupboards
No need to add a microwave or coffee maker? Then save yourself even more precious space by choosing a shallow pantry cabinet with closed cupboards and a thinner design.
This is a proper lifesaver in tighter corners where a traditional slim pantry cabinet would be a bit in the way.
A closed corner model design, on the other hand, will optimize that small space while offering you plenty of layers of storage.
Slim kitchen storage cart style cabinet
This just over 8-inch-wide cabinet with wheels is a flexible, less permanent solution that we especially recommend if you’re currently renting.
It’ll be a breeze to take it away when you next move and find a new corner for it.
Minimalist narrow depth storage cabinet
Monochrome minimalist designs make it easier to match your slim storage cabinet to the rest of your kitchen furniture.
Plus, a streamlined design is a versatile choice for several interior styles: not only minimalist but contemporary, Scandinavian, and, when opting for natural wood and metal, industrial, too.
Slim pantry with room for appliances
Hoping to store an appliance but worried that a thin pantry cabinet won’t accommodate for it? Think again! You don’t actually need that much depth: 14 inches (or even slightly less) will do.
That way, you get to keep your microwave at easy reach or create an entire coffee-making station by showcasing your new machine and cups.
At the same time, a few cupboards, shelves, or drawers (or a mixture of the three!) will help you store your most traditional pantry items and food tidily.
12 inch wide pantry cabinet with a top surface
Red Barrel Studio®
Think beyond shelves and drawers when choosing your narrow kitchen cabinets!
In fact, a 12-inch-wide pantry cabinet that isn’t too tall will allow you to make the most of its top surface, too.
You could use it for practical purposes, such as to store a microwave, or to add a more visually decorative element like a fruit bowl or a pot of flowers.
Narrow kitchen cabinets (open corner models)
Another clever way of saving space in kitchens that feel too crowded is to choose a design that matches the angle of your unused corner. Yes, the one where you thought nothing could fit!
Adding a corner twist to a narrow kitchen cabinet will result in extra depth without taking up too much floor space. When opting for an open design, you’ll also get to add an appliance or two.

Certainly! Pantry cabinets are true lifesavers, especially for the owners of small kitchens. That’s because of the sizes in which our utensils and kitchen ingredients usually come – bottles, jars and cans are similar in shape, and cabinet pantries are designed to store them in the most efficient way.
While walk-in pantries are bigger and more spacious, they are not always better. Cabinet pantries are more centralized, provide very accessible storage which is always within the reach of your hand and they don’t take up much space at all.
Cabinet pantries usually measure between 12 and 36 inches width, between 84 and 96 inches height and between 12 and 24 depth, which makes them an excellent storage solution for small and medium-size kitchens. Larger kitchens would probably be better off with a walk-in pantry.
Generally, 96 inches high pantry cabinets touch the ceiling, while 84 inches tall cabinets should give you about one foot of free space above. When it comes to depth, 12 inches is used for those without the pull-out function, and 24 inches for pull-out pantries. Finally, 12 inches of width is pretty standard, while 24 inches can be called spacious. 36 inches wide pantry cabinets are the big, heavy-duty ones.
Not at all! A cabinet pantry can have exactly the same type of front as the rest of your cabinets. However, if you would like to make it stand out on purpose, as a design statement, that’s possible – some of them even have chalkboards instead of fronts!
