Butler's Pantry Making a Comeback


June 23rd, 2017



Frequently used as staging areas for meal prep, the butler's pantry can be a strong selling point for your home. A butler's pantry commonly includes a countertop and places for storing serving pieces, dinnerware, and other items. Fancier butler's pantries can even have a fridge, small dishwasher and sink. 

The accessibility of the butler's pantry is a major plus for some buyers. being positioned next to the dining room or other living space, it lets the host do meal prep without having to go back in the kitchen. 

There are other uses for the space as well. It is an excellent storage area for pet food, toys, medications, ect. There is a struggle for space in every kitchen with the everyday dinnerware getting preference to be close by. The butler's pantry allows for the storage of your fancy dinnerware and linens. 

They can also add some syle and character to the home. Glass-front cabinet doors and interior lights can spruce up the area, while pocket doors and sliding panels can add privacy. Having the cabinetry of the butler's pantry complimenting the dining room can give the area an air of more formality, too.
