How to achieve a clutter-free kitchen
Open plan living creates a sense of spaciousness. It’s where your kitchen, dining, and living rooms seamlessly flow from one to the next, creating a beautiful space for the whole family to enjoy and for entertaining guests.
If your kitchen is always on display and there’s lots of activity in your home it can be hard to maintain a clean and tidy, clutter-free kitchen all the time.
Today, there is a new practical kitchen trend that can help you achieve a clutter free kitchen without compromising contemporary living.
A butler’s pantry is a walk-in pantry that serves as a kitchenette. What makes it so unique is that it’s a closed off room separate to your kitchen. These pantries have bench top space for food preparation, a sink for washing up, a fridge, oven and other cooking appliances that can be completely customised to your needs.
The sole purpose of a butler’s pantry is practicality and there are a few things to consider when designing yours.
1. Make sure the pantry is conveniently located near the kitchen or dining room.
2. Keep the shelves and drawers shallow, this will save space and allow you to find things quickly.
3. Visualise working in the pantry. Is there enough room to move freely and is everything within easy reach?
4. As the pantry isn’t part of your open plan kitchen you don’t have to splash out on expensive benchtops or doors. Laminate benchtops will serve the purpose and open shelving gives you quick access to the items you have stored.
So, if you like kitchens that have clean lines and are clutter-free, the butler’s pantry may be your answer.
