Starting a new build soon and my kitchen selection appointment is coming up in a few weeks, so taking this time to research research.
I'm undecided about having open shelving or closed doors in my butlers pantry.
I have a 2 year old and I know it's just a phase right now but whenever i open our pantry door he comes running and will just stand in front of it pulling everything off the bottom two shelf's.
The new build, the design we have does not allow for a door to close off the pantry, so i can just imagine him going in there and removing everything with in reach then finding cans of baked beans or bottles of tomato sauce hidden randomly around the house.
At the same time not having doors means you can easily find everything (great for hubby) and also much easier when unpacking shopping.
Alternatively would it look weird to just have doors on the bottom and open up above? My design is an L shape so I plan to have one section with floor to ceiling shelf's so there wouldn't be a bench dividing the two.
Thoughts, feedback, personal experience all welcome please.
