Traditional Kitchen, New York

Butler Pantries designed by Oakleigh Interiors: Quoted from Wikipedia: In a late medieval hall, there were separate rooms for the various service functions and food storage. A pantry was where bread was kept and food preparation associated with it done. A butler's pantry is a utility room in a large house, primarily used to store serving items, rather than food. Traditionally, a butler's pantry was used for storage, cleaning and counting of silver. The room would be used by the butler and other domestic staff; it is often called a butler's pantry even in households where there is no butler. In America, pantries evolved from early Colonial American "butteries", built in a cold north corner of a Colonial home. Butler's pantries, or china pantries, were built between the dining room and kitchen. In modern homes, butler's pantries are usually located in transitional spaces between kitchens and dining rooms, and used as staging areas for serving meals. They commonly contain countertops, and storage for tableware, serving pieces, table linens, candles, wine, and other dining-room articles. More elaborate versions may include refrigerators, sinks, or dishwashers. Oakleigh Interiors works with only the best contractors and Millwork And More is the custom cabinetry builder of choice that produces the quality cabinetry every kitchen and pantry deserves.
