Butler’s Pantry

When you hear the term “butler’s pantry,” you might imagine something found in a high-end home a hundred years ago. Today, the butler’s pantry is quickly becoming an essential in modern homes.  A modern butler’s pantry may not have tuxedo-clad stewards or an extensive collection of antique kitchenware, but there are still many reasons why this space has become a favorite among a wide range of homeowners. It was once common for butlers to keep the family’s heirlooms under lock and key in the pantry, where they stocked silver, china, and large serving dishes. A butler’s pantry is a transitional cabinet space built between the kitchen and dining room, and despite the pantry label, it’s meant to be more functional than a traditional pantry. A pantry is primarily used to store shelf items, such as flour or canned goods. However, a butler’s pantry is used for much more, like storing plated food during parties, simple food preparation, and small appliance storage. And the best thing about having a Butler’s Pantry is that cleanup can be handled later, while the clutter and mess are kept out of sight. Your butler’s pantry is primarily intended to help you retain a more organized and cleaner main kitchen on a day-to-day basis


 As an alternative to a regular pantry, a butler’s pantry can be thought of as an upgraded version. A Butler’s pantry can be considered an extension of your kitchen as opposed to a typical pantry that is only for storage items, such as flour or canned goods. However, a butler’s pantry is used for much more, like storing plated food during parties, simple food preparation, and small appliance storage and they feel like a part of your home. 

Benefits of a Butler’s Pantry

Mod Cabinetry for Butler's Pantry

A butler’s pantry is ideal for storing food items that you want readily accessible, like party snacks. During social gatherings, it’s the perfect place for holding that extra bowl of chips, a backup platter of cheese and crackers, or a spare tray of canapes until they’re needed. 

A butler’s pantry is an ideal solution for saving counter space, especially when you’re entertaining. You can keep bulky counter appliances in butler’s pantry cabinets, like ice makers, brewing equipment, blenders, and more. Your butler’s pantry can become a customized coffee or tea bar or a mixed drink station at a moment’s notice.

A butler’s pantry strategically placed between the dining room and kitchen gives you the opportunity to store the things you need without having to go all the way into the kitchen to get them. Once you have a butler’s pantry, you’ll be amazed at how convenient it is for all your dining, entertainment, and storage needs.
