What Houzz contributors are saying:
13. Location: Gold Coast, QueenslandDesigner: Stuart OsmanFeatures: This is the butler’s pantry of a seriously spacious dream kitchen.
1. Practical storage systemsA butler’s pantry isn’t just a spot to store food, but appliances, oversize platters, cookware, vases, your ‘good’ glasses – all those tricky items there’s never quite enough room for in the main kitchen. “The most important consideration when designing a butler’s pantry is storage and… easy access to stored items. Opt for open-plan shelves and have an abundance of them,” advises architect Dominic Bagnato of Bagnato Architects.
15. Location: Gold Coast, QueenslandWhy we love it: A black-and-white colour scheme, oodles of open storage, and a multitude of space-savvy drawers – a simple but effective solution for a narrow room by Stuart Osman Building Designs.
Choose drawers over cupboardsDrawers will give you far more usable storage space than cupboards, and are ideal for both kitchens and bathrooms. While you may lose a small amount of space due to drawer runners, what you gain back in practicality is more valuable. You can also add practical inclusions to drawers such as spice racks, pull-out bins and slide-out benches.
