20 really stylish larder cupboard and pantry ideas for your kitchen

Sage green larder

Fresh and muted, this sage green kitchen larder draws upon soft, botanical shades found in the natural world. This breakfast cupboard offers ample space for cereal, tea towels, glassware and wine. Also take note of the bespoke pull-out drawers for optimal storage.

Pretty in pink pantry unit

Pink certainly has a way to make a space feel full of personality. Kitchens can often be a neutral affair in our homes, but this pink pantry from Tom Howley is a lesson in how to do it well. There are three tall cupboards and drawers above – the super smart wine rack, which can be seen through the glass door, is a lovely design detail.

A kitchen extension

'Your walk-in pantry should be a natural extension of the kitchen, so when designing it, you should think about its everyday practical requirements, how it will function, and what you will store there,' says Tom Howley, design director of the eponymous kitchen company.

Statement greens

The humble larder cupboard gets an upgrade here. This design from Husk Kitchens, with jade green cupboards and gold handles, is ideal for anyone wanting to make a statement with storage. Every area is utilised here, with the wooden racks on the doors offering space for small tins and jars.

Practical shelving

A larder cupboard is a highly covetable design feature, particularly for storage seekers. This design from Wren Kitchens has seven shelves, giving you enough space to squeeze in all the essentials and keep it hidden behind closed doors.

An open display

A pantry can provide the answer to all your storage woes, but not everything has to be behind closed doors. Where shelves are on display, think about the best way to group or corral vegetables, cereals and spices.

Dramatic reds

This red pantry from Herringbone will tempt you to ditch conventional coloured cabinetry. Offering a grown-up approach to kitchen design, it has been complemented by brass handles and marvellous marble worktops.

The bifold pantry

This design has all the makings of the aforementioned breakfast pantry, where you can store your coffee machine, tea bags, and mugs and bowls.

Paint continuity

'To retain cohesion paint your pantry in the same colour as your existing cabinets, or to create more of a contrast add a pop of colour,' says Al Bruce, founder of Olive & Barr. 'Painting your pantry in a different shade will act as a focal point whilst adding depth and interest to the space.'

A pop of colour

Beautiful to look at and practical to use, elevate your kitchen space with this colourful, tall larder cupboard. Opt for zesty orange to brighten a neutral space.

Built-in appeal

The benefit of a built-in larder cupboard is definitely its sleek, stylish appeal.

Fashionable tiles

Lucky enough to have your very own walk-in pantry? We love how this small room is a pocket oof design inspiration thanks to the blue and white tiles which start on the floor and work all the way up the wall. The combination of shelves, drawers and work surface space, plus strip lighting, creates all the functionality you'll need.

Task lighting

In a stylish sage green hue, this kitchen looks like something you might scroll past on Instagram. The practical kitchen larder unit — with pull-out drawers and wooden shelves – is ideal for displaying jars, tins and small kitchen appliances. It's important to highlight the use of lighting here. Under shelf lighting makes it easier to perform tasks and gives more visibility of what's on the shelves at night.

Design details

In a deep navy, this pantry cupboard/home bar is sure to wow guests popping over for drinks. Whether you're storing bottles, books or crystal glasses, it's the perfect nook for keeping everything neat and tidy. We especially love the mirrored backdrop to the wine rack. Cocktail night, anyone?

Sleek reeded glass

This striking walk-in pantry has sleek grey cabinets and wooden shelves, providing plenty of storage space. The highlight here is the reeded glass door, which helps to zone and divide the pantry from the kitchen.

The sliding door

Here's more reeded glass but this time as a sliding door. This walk-in pantry offers an element of privacy and perfectly balances being part of the kitchen, whilst also being its own room.

Slimline storage

Slimline cupboards can still store a fair amount of food. This navy pull-out kitchen larder from B&Q shows just how well it works. Anyone else totally in love with this space?

Traditional style

This stunning pantry from Life Kitchens is providing plenty of dreamy design ideas. The teal panelling matches the kitchen units, whilst the oak drawers and shelves keep it light and contemporary.

Ample storage

In a soft oak, this expansive kitchen pantry brings an element of warmth whilst also providing plenty of storage. With more shelves than you can count, you'll never run out of space for all of those jars.

The corner pantry

A corner pantry is the perfect way to make the most of awkward, tight or an under-utilised area in your kitchen. Enabling you to close the door on mess, this design has room for wine bottles, shelves for dry food and even space to stand inside. Trust us when we say corner pantries are a good idea.
