    I have this tall cupboard in the kitchen. Reluctant to knock it down as it's surrounded by brick walls. I thought to use it for appliances but the door/frame in only 57 and 57.5cm. It's about 64cm wide and 63cm deep making it hard to reach into.

    What's the best way to use this? Kitchen larder or hallway/utility closet?

    Fit a pull out larder unit or larder unit into space.

    Larder unit with a couple of drawers at bottom,then some shelves/pullout shelves,door storage for smaller things like spice jars,etc.

    Even home office for wife, shelf for laptop, shelves for cooking books,loads you could do.

    Plenty of ideas on Pinterest.

    Remove frame and any architrave - tidy up mess with 10mm MDF or plaster. Trim as required . Fit WM with TD stacked on top into alcove.

    Thanks Kiab. Lovely photo. Would consider it if the cupboard wasn't next to a door.
