Incorporating a Butler’s Pantry in Your Custom Home:
It is no secret that here at Fratantoni Interior Designers, we love designing custom homes for our clients! Another non-secret is the importance of the kitchen in a home, often some might even say the kitchen is the heart of the home! – This, we agree with! You can never have too much space to work with and this is why our Scottsdale interior designers recommend incorporating a Butler’s Pantry to your home. Two main key points stand out about a Butler’s Pantry; storage and space.
The French Villa has extra warming drawers, a microwave, open shelving, a sink, and extra storage.
It seems like almost every year a new kitchen appliance or gadget is introduced that speeds up the cooking process of an item, or assists in the preparation process. We don’t know about you, but our shelves are getting full. Thus, incorporating a butler’s pantry allows for extra storage for kitchen appliances. Often beverages take up space in the refrigerator, having a beverage fridge or second refrigerator gives you more space in the main fridge for food items. As well as more storage space for perishable items if you are hosting guests at your home. Extra storage is also useful for the plethora of cookbooks that you may have (and only use once a year) and formal glassware for special occasions.
The Royal Chateau butler’s pantry has a preparation sink, beverage fridge, and extra storage for household appliances and items.
Now, space often goes hand in hand with storage, however, the meaning of space in this blog is with a butler’s pantry offering extra storage countertop space is clear. Hosting guests at your home has never been easier, hide the mess of dirty dishes in the pantry while having free countertops to display appetizers, main courses, and more yummy food spreads! With extra space in the pantry, food preparation areas are accessible and out of sight from guests. Instead of your countertops having bulky appliances, display your favorite pieces of decor that normally you would not have space for. Our Arizona interior designers recommend vases, fruit bowl sets, and holiday decor for your kitchen countertops! As seen below in the French Villa.
