What is a Butler’s Pantry?

These days, a kitchen isn’t complete without a Butler’s Pantry.

For those with the luxury of space, a Butler's Pantry is a must have in a modern home. Essentially a small kitchen within your kitchen, they are hidden out of sight behind a wall or door. The main function of a Butler's Pantry is to provide space to prepare food and clean up, without getting your main kitchen messy. They also provide ample storage for groceries, serving ware and any desktop appliances you may not wish to have cluttering up your countertops.

Size will vary depending on your home and can be as simple as having some shelves and bench space, all the way to having a second sink, dishwasher and walls of storage. Shelves rather than cupboards maximise storage space in your butler’s pantry, creating a functional and practical space. And don’t think your butler’s pantry can only be functional – add personality with different coloured accessories including cookbooks, vases, bowls, platters, containers and glassware.
