Ooh-err: there’s huge rise in so-called kitchen ‘pantry porn’ online

But no need to worry and avert your eyes, it's all good, clean kitchen fun

It seems there is new eye-candy hitting the usual social media platforms on the homes circuit lately and it’s being rather cheekily nick-named ‘pantry porn’! Wait a mo don’t switch browsers in shock, we’re not talking pretty panties, we’re actually talking perfect kitchen pantries – phew!

That’s right, kitchen pantries and larders showcasing the very best of bespoke cabinetry packed with clever storage options, like slim shelves inside the door for herbs and spices, to deeper shelves for dry foods and neat baskets for organising fruit and vegetables, it seems, is what is turning home-lovers on right now.

These days when it comes to getting a new kitchen, a well-designed pantry is high on the wishlist of built-in features, and some even make space for a walk in pantry.

Could it be the Great British Bake Off that is making us potty about the good old kitchen pantry? Or, maybe it’s got something to do with our long-lasting love affair with the  ITV drama, Downton Abbey and Mrs Patmore’s Victorian kitchen?

Or, is this demand simply due to the charm and nostalgia associated with the kitchen pantry, not to mention it’s practical benefits. Whatever the reason we’re not complaining, we’re all for this so-called ‘pantry porn’ that is sweeping the internet, So in true Idealhome.co.uk fashion, we’ve found some of our favuorites for you to swoon over.

@Humphrymuson design and make award-winning beautiful handmade kitchens. Here, they showcase their quintessentially British best.

Walk-in pantries are also becoming super popular if you have the space. We love the vintage take on this ‘wonderful little pantry’ – divine!

Built-in pantries and country schemes go hand-in-hand. Bravo @Bryerdesign for this beautiful, bespoke kitchen pantry that even has it’s own little work-top inside.

Now that’s organisation! We wonder how long @thehomeedit pantry will stay so smart?

@Neptunehomeofficial describes their kitchen storage design as more of a larder. It’s slimmer and has tiers of storage. ‘Tomato’ ‘tomahto’ it’s still pretty hot!

No room for an actual pantry? Transform your a regular cupboard into a DIY petite pantry. We like your thinking @blesserhouse.

A walk-in pantry with French doors that requires a runner ladder? Sorry @hayburnco, for us this is X-rated!
