Building a Home – Butler’s Pantry Reveal

The Butler’s Pantry might be the area in the house with the most “glamour” due to it’s fabulous backsplash.  It’s also a space that we are using a lot more than we thought we would in this house due to one of the most popular items in the house…our ice maker!

Let me start by showing you the inspiration board for the space.

The Butler’s Pantry is really just a walk through in our house.  It is the hallway between our kitchen and pantry and also has a door that leads out to “Luca’s yard” where he gets to go outside.  It’s small so only one picture, but it packs some punch!

You’ll have to excuse the un-styled cabinets because I still haven’t gotten around to re-arranging everything other than the haphazard style that I unpacked straight into the cabinet.  But I do like the seedy glass that’s in the cabinets to obscure a little of the disorganization and make it look a little better.

The post about the Butler’s Pantry would be lacking if I didn’t mention the piece de resistance: the Scotsman Pellet (aka “Sonic Ice”) Ice Maker.  We totally turned off the ice maker in our fridge when we moved in and solely use the ice maker to get our ice.  I LOVE it and so does everyone who comes to our house.  This was one thing that we decided we were going to spend the money for and it has been worth every penny.

The ice never runs out.  It honestly hasn’t ever even really gotten low, even when we’ve had family gatherings of over 20 people and we’re serving drinks out of it.  The ice tastes great and has contributed to me drinking a lot more water since it’s so good with the ice in it.

The counter space is also good because it’s enough room to set some soft drinks or tea pictures along with cups for parties, but not too much space that it goes to waste.  And having a sink right there is awesome for refilling water or dumping out too much ice.

The area is small but it gets a lot of use and the glitz in the backsplash and stone make me happy every time I walk in there!
