No pantry space is frustrating! It's sort of a basic need, in my opinion. The no pantry space issue seems to plague small kitchens and apartments the most. The good news is that there are not only lots of spots to tuck in a pantry, they are clever and cute, too!
This article is heavy on "found space" - adding a pantry in an unlikely space where one didn't exist before. Like it's cousin, "shallow pantries" - found space pantries are resourceful. After all, you, in it's most minimalist form, you only have to fit one jar of anything on a skinny shelf.
Many of these examples would also fit in the shallow pantry solution section. These examples just are a bit more resourceful in finding space. Let's get to it and explore the world of finding pantry space when you have none!

Another sliver of space turned into pantry storage. It's a nice touch to extend the low pantry counter over the radiator that sits under the window. Good designers blend whenever they can - it's the best way to minimize room obstacles.
Another example of skinny storage that looks like its a column. This one uses the same hardware as the rest of the cabinets, even though it is a "column." I'm sure the practicality of having a good, strong handle is welcome!
Where there is space, there can be a pantry cabinet. This type of narrow cabinet works best if it isn't too deep. The twin doors gracing each side of the central door gives the space a unique, custom design feel.
Oh my, these skinny columns are popular! I draw your attention to the fact that one column is a pull out, and the other opens up to reveal a wide storage access. It also looks like this refrigerator spot may have been added, since the cabinets don't exactly match the rest of the kitchen.
Non-matching cabinets can complement each other and are good solutions in partial remodels.
I just love the detail of beautiful trim work in this wall pantry. Notice the ever-so-slight bump out that stretches the shallow space even more. The skilled carpenter even incorporated the heat register in the bottom baseboard AND worked the trim work around a notch in the wall - double points!
