I appreciate your great feedback.

There’s a big problem with the door, however. It’s a folding door. You cannot see this from the photo.

In terms of moving the shelves up, it’s a great idea but it would entail repainting the whole pantry because the space behind the current shelving wood is another color.

Another alternative would be installing some kind of pot hanger outside the pantry, next to the microwave and the cabinet above it. But this is a narrower space. I’ll take a photo tomorrow (when there’s natural light) so that you can see what I’m talking about.

Again, really appreciate your feedback.

BG – glad you got it figured out.
also, people don t realize there is a lot of useable space behind the door,
if it doesn t meet the shelves, for hangers, small shelves, spice racks, etc.
“installing a rack toward the bottom of the pantry, under the 3rd shelf would look weird”.
but – it will only look weird while the door is open. (out of sight ~ out of mind).

personally, I would investigate moving the two bottom shelves up to accommodate a 4th shelf
and add some pot/pan hangers on the back of the door.
