This may be my most fav feature of all...just because its so unexpected and plain cool. Do you see it...the little doorway in the backsplash area? If the layout allows, how about a pass-through opening from the dining room into the butler's pantry. In this layout, the kitchen is located on the other side...just through the doorway. I love this idea! It sure would save a lot of walking, especially with a dishwasher built into this space.
So, tell me...what's in your buttery...besides food and stuff? :) Any neat little features that are must haves for the well-stocked pantry?
