The term “butler’s pantry” reminds me of a room in a mansion or a castle. Actually, in America, pantries evolved from early American “butteries”, built in a cold north corner of a colonial home and was more commonly referred to and spelled as “butt’ry”. A butler’s pantry, also called a serving pantry, is becoming a popular feature in home designs. There is a certain charm and great usability to a butler’s pantry. It is traditionally located in a short hallway between the kitchen and the dining room. This location makes for easy access to glassware, silver, linens, and china that can be stored there. It also offers a perfect serving surface for appetizers, drinks, dessert, or even coffee and pastries. If there is a wine cellar in the home design, the butler’s pantry is usually adjacent to the cellar. Gorgeous cabinetry, stone counters, custom tile, and even chandeliers make the butler’s pantry lovely and functional. Adding a bar sink and dishwasher makes the butler’s pantry even more useful for easy clean-up! So when choosing your new home plan, consider the design of the comeback butler’s pantry!
