What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jason Ball Interiors, LLC added this to The Modern Butler's Pantry
Position the butler's pantry by the dining room for maximum function. Historically, the butler's pantry is a room between the formal dining room and the kitchen. It acted as the staging area for formal gatherings. Here, the butler's pantry seems to be a hallway leading to the dining room. To counter the narrowness of the room, a large mirror makes the room seem bigger. Notice the abundance of counter space for display and staging meals.
