My clients recently purchased a home and were wanting to make some spaces more efficient and user-friendly. On my list was to create a butlers pantry and a closet-makeover. While they were two totally separate spaces, we addressed both areas at the same time. This is Part 1 of a two-part series for this home. For this blog, I’ll be going over the Butler’s Pantry Makeover.
Butler’s Pantry Makeover
Let’s start with this space that is located just off of the kitchen. When my clients moved into the home, they did a lot of painting. Part of the painting was the existing cabinets. The gorgeous hood fan in the kitchen is a lovely blue.
This blue is such a strong and rich statement. We decided to do all of the cabinetry in this color! I have used this color before and was excited to be working with it again! After discussing the items on the ‘wish list’, the conceptual design was created.
My client loves to bake and there were certain things on her list that she wished for. The items we were adding were:
A tall cabinet to house the cleaning supplies, brooms, a vacuum, etc.
An apron sink.
My clients wished to have their microwave (in a base cabinet).
Floating shelves were a must!
And here is the 3D conceptual rendering of the butler’s pantry makeover:
Butler’s Pantry: Before
Here is what the butler’s pantry looked like prior to the work getting done.
Part of the space was used as a dropping zone for….things.
The previous owner had plumbing in already for a sink and we were lucky there were also outlets at counter height.

The tall cabinet that now houses the cleaning supplies (out of sight).
We chose a beautiful, delicate knob in a Golden Champagne finish. This finish, with the blue cabinets, is just so damn pretty!
For the faucet, we continued with the Golden Champagne finish.
My client LOVES to bake and can’t wait to use her new space!
Butler’s Pantry Makeover
This was such a great space to create. I absolutely loved working with my client and I wish to give her a special shout-out. Our initial conversation started in March of 2018. I had mentioned that I was pretty booked but she patiently waited for me to fit her in. We had a couple of long delays with things (no fault of anyone – just an extremely busy renovation summer). In the end, although this space took longer to get it all done, I am extremely grateful for such great clients. In a recent email, my client said,
Love my Pantry! It so much fun to work in.
Coming next week I’ll be showcasing their master closet makeover! I hope you stay tuned.
