We're going to install a walk-pantry in our new home and it will be right in the middle of the house. In a few display homes we've looked at, they have a window in the pantry and the natural light is really lovely but due to the location we can't have a window. I'm thinking of maybe having a sink and bench space in there for the kettle and toaster but other than that, I won't be spending any time in there. Just wondering whether a skylight is ok for somewhere that I'm storing food? And for those that have a window or skylight in their pantry, would you recommend it?

I know some foods etc say avoid keeping in sunlight ( well it says store in cool dark area) Wound you have door/s on food storage area?

I would have mostly open shelving I think... That was my concern regarding the "store in a cool, dry, dark place"

We have a walk in pantry with a skylight and open shelves. No problems at all with the food. We don't keep food on the very top shelves as they're quite high up but it's fine for the food on other shelves. I find the shelves stay reasonably dark and the pantry itself is one of the coolest areas in the house, even in the height of summer.
