We have bought our last house and our fridge won't fit in the space provided. I want to turn the space into a pantry for my cooking utensils and leave the fridge beside it. I thought of just putting shelves and doors, it is quite a wide area.
I'd encourage you to share some photos of the space so members can see what you are working with and provide some useful suggestions to you. It sounds like a fun project and you can certainly never have enough storage space in the kitchen! Please let me know if you need a hand with uploading some images to share.
