Residential Renovation:Part 2 The Butler’s Pantry

This nearly 100 year old suburban Boston home underwent a head-to-toe renovation designed by Hundred Acre.  We kept the classic bones of the home intact, and updated the layout and finishes to suit a young family’s needs.

The Butler’s Pantry

The Butler’s Pantry is, without a doubt, my favorite room in the house. Originally designed as a transition space between the Kitchen and Dining Room used for silver storage and meal service, today’s Butler’s Pantry can serve multiple functions. This particular little gem houses the washer and dryer, a prep/laundry sink, the microwave and its primary feature, the bar. The Butler’s Pantry  is the perfect opportunity to play up accent finishes. Here, we painted the cabinets a darker gray than the adjacent Kitchen and featured a classic white Carrara marble for the countertops. The sliding glass doors of the bar cabinet were original to the home, and were refinished and re-installed in a new wall cabinet to house the family’s glass and stemware.

Residential Renovation: Part 1 The Kitchen

This nearly 100 year old suburban Boston home underwent a head-to-toe renovation designed by Hundred Acre.  We kept the classic bones of the home intact, and updated the layout and finishes to suit a young family’s needs.

The Kitchen

IMG_9216

The former mud room/kitchen was combined to create a larger, more functional space centered around an island that does double duty for both breakfast and cooking prep.  Custom Shaker style painted cabinets replaced the dated cabinetry that was original to the home. New wood flooring to match the rest of the house replaced aging linoleum tiles, and top of the line appliances, plumbing fixtures and a modern glass tile backsplash were added. To infuse the Kitchen with this family’s appreciation for vintage industrial style, Hundred Acre custom made the island from an century old pine work table and vintage school locker drawers. See our post on the Rockledge Kitchen Island here.
