The advantages of a butler’s pantry

The advantages of a butler’s pantry

A butler’s pantry is more than just a second kitchen and not necessarily the luxury it might sound like. Firstly, what exactly is a butler’s kitchen? A butler’s pantry is a room or space separate to the kitchen that functions as a utility room where meals, drinks, and appetisers can be prepared and/or clean up done.

It can also be used to store things like linen, glasses and cutlery. Use a butler’s pantry to hide dirty dishes and food leftovers and/or scraps from guests. Housing the microwave in the butlers pantry is also useful, not only so you can prepare or plate up meals to heat and immediately serve but it can also save on the overlooked costs involved to provide a dedicated place for it in the main kitchen, sometimes taking up precious space and often an eye sore when it can’t be integrated like other modern kitchen appliances.

Many modern homes are open plan which often means dining and entertaining areas are in full view of the kitchen. A butler’s pantry can enhance your lifestyle if you do a lot of entertaining or your kitchen gets overcrowded during mealtimes. By having a separate butler’s pantry, your main kitchen bench space and sink area can be kept clear of preparations and mess. A butler’s pantry can give you additional storage cabinets and bench space.

Your kitchen area floor plan will typically need to allow enough space to create a natural flowing extension. A well-designed butler’s pantry can also add considerable value to your home, if/when you decide to sell. They are becoming a sought-after addition rather than just a luxury.
