Removing kitchen pantry

3117 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  pgreaf
In the process of removing the built in pantry. When I opened the first wall I found there were vents in the floor and ceiling. The basement below is finished and the master is above. The pantry is located in the middle of the house. Not sure of the purpose of the vents but I would like to cover and install cabinets. Anyone know if there would be an issue to close the openings? The pantry is original to the house which was built in 2005

Yup cold air return to the upstairs. . Remove this and you will change your upstairs heat distribution. So it needs to be re-routed .

Plans don't remove my kitchen pantry, I couldn't live with out it 😏.
