Because this galley kitchen is smaller in scale, it was important to utilize every square inch. Thus, designer Lucie Ayres tucked her clients' washer and dryer behind some custom cabinets and gave them drawers for a little pantry area as well.
Located conveniently next to the kitchen, this butler's pantry keeps wine glasses stowed away behind pretty glass cabinets. A miniature refrigerator keeps wine chilled and ready for serving. An arabesque tile backsplash adds interest to break up the black cabinetry.
This built-in dog crate is situated below a pantry and open shelf unit. The built-in design keeps the crate out of the way while still allowing for easy access. A grated door ensures the dog can see out and receive air flow.
The large solid oak cabinets that flank each side of the range are completely custom, made with dovetailing of joints for increased durability and strength. This tall pantry cabinet to the right of the range includes a semi-automatic espresso machine with an elegant black finish and stainless-steel accents, stylish coffee cups, dry goods and cookbooks to inspire tasty meals at home.
A color palette of gray and yellow makes for a stylish combo in this butler's pantry. Soft gray cabinets pair with linear pulls and gray countertops for a sleek, contemporary look. A golden yellow mosaic tile backsplash completes the chic design.
Because part of this butler's pantry can be viewed from the eat-in kitchen, the designers used a built-in banquette and patterned pillows to create the illusion of a sitting area. When guests step inside the space, though, they'll see that the pantry actually has floor-to-ceiling cabinets on both sides, plus a prep sink and open shelves.
