With the introduction of open plan kitchens and breakfast bars, kitchens have become the heart of the home. We know all too well families and guests like to congregate around the centre of the cooking action. As humans, most of our lives revolve around cooking and eating so it’s only natural we gravitate to where the action is. There are a variety of ways to enhance your kitchen experience but one of the most practical and rewarding features you can add is a butler’s pantry.
Think of all the times you’ve entertained, where the dirty dishes have built up alongside the sink, taking up all the bench space. Have you ever been embarrassed by the greasy pots and pans, the haphazard pile of plates and bowls, when guests have come to chat and help you prepare food? Sometimes, you think, it’d be easier if you could shove all the mess of prepping into a room, out of sight and out of mind, until you’ve finished entertaining. Well! That’s exactly what a butler’s pantry is for.
Before you install a butler’s pantry, though, it’s important to keep these things in mind:
Now, we haven’t mentioned perhaps one of the most important functions of a butler’s pantry – wine storage! How many times have you argued over where to put the bar fridge or wine rack? And yet, no matter where you put it, it feels out of place – and no one wants to hike out to the garage to get the good bottles of chardonnay or pinot noir. Eurocave have a wide range of wine cabinets that will be the perfect addition to any butler’s pantry. Problem solved!
So… whether you decide to include a sink or dishwasher, whether you’ll install four power points or eight, design your butler’s pantry to fit your lifestyle and enjoy all the benefits of having the additional space and hide-away for dirty dishes.
