A butler’s pantry has always been synonymous with luxury house designs. Originally, butler’s pantries were used to store silver, serving pieces and other kitchen related items which would be kept under lock and key.
Nowadays butler’s pantries have become more of a kitchen extension. With homes becoming more open plan, our kitchens are more heavily integrated with our living areas and our butler’s pantries are designed to be put on display.
A modern butler’s pantry is used to store appliances, prepare food and stow away a mess mid-dinner party. They can function as a small kitchen within your kitchen or have more focus on space and storage. Either way a butler’s pantry is a must have kitchen addition in your home and not to be left out of your designs.
