Check out our butlers pantry ideas including different types and kitchen styles with small layouts, modern, DIY, and walk-in butlers pantry designs.
A butler’s pantry is more than just a normal pantry since it serves as an extension of the kitchen. The area is not just for storage since there is enough space to do your meal preparation in it, making this type of pantry more functional.
In addition to that, it is also highly customizable that it can also function as a home bar and entertainment space. Do you have free space in of right off your kitchen that you don’t know what to do with? Here are several butler pantry ideas you can do to make the most of that space.
Walk-in Butlers Pantry
If you have an extra space right next to your kitchen, a walk-in butlers pantry is a dream come true. This particular butlers pantry features white cabinets, open shelves, a built-in desk, and a dishwasher. This pantry has enough space for you to work on your weekly menu or even just work.
Since it’s an all-white design, save for the stainless dishwasher, the small indoor plants add freshness to the room. And the best part is that it’s open to the kitchen, which gives you easy access to come and go when needed and wanted.
If you are designing your own space you can see the standard walk-in pantry dimensions to use here.

This butler pantry features marble countertops and several wooden hanging shelves, where kitchen items and utensils are kept. The color of the shelves matches the walls of the entire laundry room.
Butlers Pantry Decor
If you’re looking for something homey yet something clean and organized, you can check out this butlers pantry and its decor. In this kitchen galley, the countertop, appliances, sink, and floating shelves are found on the left side while white open shelves are located on the right side.
Kitchen tools and utensils and food supply are found both on the floating shelves and the open shelves. The shelves, drawers, and even furniture are in white, which match the white brick-style backsplash.
The hanging lights add charm to the kitchen and at the same time emphasize the pantry items found on the upper floating shelf. And the cherry on top is the red rug placed in front of the sink and in the middle of the entire kitchen.
Built-in Butlers Pantry
Are you a minimalist in nature and want to have a butlers pantry design in the same style? If you are, this built-in butlers pantry with clean white cabinets and walls is a good option for you.
While a bit small, the white color provides an appeal of cleanliness and an illusion that the room is bigger than it actually is. The hanging cabinets also have clear glass doors, making it easier to know which items are stored in which cabinets.
In this case though rather than being connected to the kitchen, this butlers pantry is connected to the dining room. And the contrasting colors of white (for the pantry) and yellow (for the dining room) balance each other out.
