    Hi Brad, thanks for your question, apologies for the delay in responding. The room measures approximate 1500mm long x 2700mm wide. These are then internal room dimensions. It is difficult to gauge room dimensions via the perspective of some photographs. Best of luck. Regards, Karen.

6. Designer and commentator: Karen Aston, designer at Karen Aston DesignLocation: Sydney, NSWSet-up: The butler’s pantry in a classic Pettit+Sevitt mid-century style house occupied by a busy couple with two teenagers. The owners do a lot of a meal prepping.Aston says: We specified plenty of bench space so everyday items such as the kettle, toaster and coffee machine could be left out where they’re easily accessible. It also creates space for the teenagers to make toast and snacks, without making the main kitchen untidy.The client is highly organised with a great set-up for reusable storage containers, so we included plenty of open storage to give everything a space and make containers easy accessible.Shallow, open shelves such as these provide great viewing and access.

Karen Aston, principal at interior design firm Karen Aston Design4. Blunder: Not having enough space for a butler’s pantryBefore you plan your dream butler’s pantry, ask yourself if you really have the space for one. Factor in the dimensions of the walls that will need to be built to house the area, and any inclusions. Solution: Consider the space requirements carefully before committing to a butler’s pantry. You can easily move in and out of an 800-millimetre-wide door carrying groceries. However, bending, reaching and opening drawers requires much more space. The minimum distance I’d recommend between two sides of a butler’s pantry is 1,000 millimetres, although 1,200 millimetres is preferable.You’ll then need to add another 600 millimetres for a run of benchtops. If you are including a refrigerator, dishwasher or double sink, you’ll need even more space.

Thinking behind the arrangement of furniture/fixtures:The galley-style layout of the kitchen was retained as other designs could not be achieved without major structural changes and expense. However, this layout was improved both aesthetically and functionally with some minor structural changes to the walls and windows.These included: Adding a walk-in pantry to the rear of the kitchen by stealing space from the adjoining home office. Lowering the height of the window above the sink and adding a second window beside it to create one long, contemporary splashback-style window, with space for wall cabinets above it.

Food is the love language of our family so storage is essential. I would like to keep appliance, special occasion serving ware and large pot and pans in there too.
