Nothing screams luxury like having a butler. Whether in the home of classic movie stars of yesteryear or our modern-day billionaires, a butler’s presence is something that resonates with elegance and sophistication.
This design brief shares a luxurious butler's pantry for those looking to add an extra touch of grandeur to their home (the butler is optional). The design must be functional and aesthetically pleasing, while also taking into account the restrictions of space.
Our experts here at C&C Cabinets will help you create a luxurious butler's pantry you could have only dreamed of... until you called us at least!
What is a Butler's Pantry?
Fundamentally, a butler's pantry is a separate room or area in the home that is used to store serving dishes and items used when entertaining guests. It often includes shelves, drawers, cabinets, countertops, and other storage solutions for dishes and utensils.
It doesn't stop there though, as the butler's pantry can also be used as a mini kitchen, with appliances to make entertaining guests even easier such as:
- wine coolers
- built-in coffee stations
- built-in bars
The Royal History of the Butler's Pantry
The 19 century roots of the modern-day butler's pantry helped the butlers of wealthy households serve their employers. It quickly became fashionable for these homes to have a special room dedicated to the duties of the butler—the butler’s pantry.
Today, the butler's pantry has become a sought-after feature for many homes, whether you have a full-time butler or not. It allows homeowners to have an extra special area in their homes that is dedicated solely to entertaining and storing items used when hosting guests.
Over 60% of new home buyers say that they would opt for the upgraded storage that comes along with a butler's pantry.
Building Your Own Butler's Pantry
When building a butler's pantry, consider the size and layout of the space you are working with. This will help determine what type of storage solutions can be implemented and how much room needs to be allotted for appliances, counter space, etc.
As always, ensure it matches with the aesthetic of the rest of your home and kitchen. The use of quality materials, such as solid wood cabinets and granite countertops, help create a more luxurious look.
