Butler Pantries are catching my eye these days. Downton Abbey’s gorgeous old style kitchens have created a remodel obsession for homeowners. Fans are still talking about the kitchen, the butler pantries, the staff. Here are some of my favorite butlers pantry photos. The first is from House Beautiful, I absolutely love that this butlers pantry got a window. It brings the whole room to life and gives the reflective glass door cabinets the feeling of being windows as well.
This handsome butler pantry also uses glass cabinet doors, both practical and visually appealing. It makes sense to be able to see what is stored in this efficient space.
Again, from House Beautiful, the details make this storage so elegant: the painted inside of the cabinets, the glass doors, the incredible hardware. wow.
The butler pantry below just shouts Downton Abbey. I wish I knew more about where it came from, the picture is from Flickr.com. No expense was spared with this cabinetry. This one has the feel of really being used by people who entertain.
Ahhhh! Light, height, glass cabinet doors, even a library ladder that bends, no less. Another dream butler pantry.
The handsome sleek moderne look. Very, very nice. Notice the change in counter surface on the sink counter, the lacquered walls, the chandelier and under-lit cabinets. The trio of mirrors creates a window effect to open up the narrow space. Nicely done!
This one has an interesting balance of lightness to counteract the beautiful dark cabinetry. The chandelier, lit cabinets, glass doors, carrera marble counter tops, and mirrored backsplash create a super elegant butler pantry.
And finally, a classic traditional butler pantry, white and crisply organized.
This photo, via pinterest, highlights the handsomeness of design that Butler Pantries seem to automatically get- why can’t the rest of the kitchen be like this?!
Now, the only thing missing is the butler, courtesy of Pinterest:
