Butlers' Pantries are a great addition to any modern day kitchen,
especially when it comes to entertaining and keeping the home neat and
tidy. If you want to know more then read on to discover their various
benefits and why they can add so much value to your home.
Unlike the pantries of years gone by, pantries are now bigger and
better, and with so many additional extras to consider such as power
points, shelving and appliances - it's confusing to know where to start.
What we love about the butler's pantry is that it allows your kitchen
to look great all the time, no matter the occasion. This is especially
true for those who love to entertain. Food preparation can be done
easily in this space, keeping all the mess out the back and allowing
your kitchen to be the true star of the show.
Metricon's Design Director Adrian Popple says, "The butler's pantry has
gained a lot of interest since we started including them in our larger
homes several years ago. It has now become a standard feature in most of
our homes regardless of their size. The main purpose of a butler's
pantry is not just to provide storage for food but to also serve as a
meal prep and clean up area?"
Want to avoid the dreaded 'rookie error'? One of the biggest mistakes
we see when it comes to designing a butler's pantry is not including
enough power points. It's always important to think about how many
appliances you use on a daily basis and to ensure the addition of enough
power points to avoid pulling out cords all the time. We also
understand that the cost of a butlers' pantry can deter those on a tight
budget - but don't fret! You can keep the costs down in this space by
continuing with the same colour scheme used in the kitchen - just change
up the materials.
