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.
