Riley’s top tipsDon’t forget to include a cutlery drawer and space for a few bowls and plates in your butler’s pantry. This will allow you to get a quick breakfast ready here, without having to walk out into – and mess up – the kitchen. If your budget can stretch to it, choose the same benchtop material for your butler’s pantry as your kitchen – it adds a sense of cohesion and gives your butler’s pantry wow factor. If your butler’s pantry has corners, be smart with the use of them by incorporating elements such as corner pull-out storage, otherwise the area can become a dead space.
