This kitchen alcove used to hold a washer and dryer. Designers moved both to a new laundry room and turned this space into a much-needed pantry. Painting the shelves gray is a tasteful way to dress them up.
This home's streamlined modern design extends even into the butler's pantry. Pretty wood cabinets offer plentiful extra storage. For wine, there's a floor-to-ceiling Sub-Zero wine refrigerator, a unique element that was the design jumping-off point for the entire room. A deep sink hides dirty dishes after big parties (shh...).
The rumors are true: this spacious kitchen includes a butler's pantry. With its bright white cabinets, brass hardware and light wood floors, the narrow hall feels open and complements the rest of the kitchen.
Vintage Butler’s Pantry with Curtained Glass Doors
For a dash of delightful design, adorn doors that lead into a pantry or mudroom with colorful fabric. For her curtained glass doors, Alabama interior designer Mary Finch used a textile with a bit of a vintage motif.
Doing laundry is ever so much more exciting when you get to come into the laundry room via a hidden entrance. Turn these pantry shelves around and step inside. The pantry itself features hand-scraped shelves and a mahogany butcher block countertop.
Tucked behind the chic, family-friendly kitchen is an open pantry. Open shelving is perfect for keeping everyday dishes handy, and cool gray cabinets provide much-needed storage. The pantry also houses the wine refrigerator.
