Whether you've admired the Downton Abbey kitchen over the seasons or salivated over Khloé Kardashian's über-organized pantry, stylish food storage is something we all strive for. And though, yes, we're not all lucky enough to live in British castles or California mansions, just a few feet's worth of storage can make a beautiful statement. To complement your kitchen needs, we came up with the perfect makeshift butler's pantry for every style. From the traditionalist to the modernist, pick your favorite style below and transform your pantry this weekend.
You may not be a master chef, but mixology holds no secrets for you. Forget the dry goods and transform your pantry into a wet bar, complete with cocktail recipe books, bar tools, and glassware. Think sleek and sophisticated, like a modern Don Draper. Iron, marble, glass, and brass will create an elevated look for your cocktail station.
You're a minimalist at heart, so you'll want everything in your pantry to serve a specific function: glass jars to store canned goods and baskets for root vegetables. Keep your shelves edited, and only display items that are useful to you in daily life, like stackable Japanese mugs, or a mortar and pestle.
You're a die-hard traditionalist who enjoys maintaining a level of etiquette in everything you do, especially when it comes to dining. You'll need a multifunctional pantry to store not only dry goods, but also silverware, candleholders, and serveware. Paint your pantry a cheerful color to make it more inviting.
You love handcrafted items and simple organic shapes. Why not display these artisan made goods with open shelving? Keep a neutral palette, hang a few shelves and hooks, and voilà: your very own display of beautiful kitchen essentials.
You're a wine aficionado, and you'll need space to store your essentials: From bottles and carafes to glasses, champagne buckets, and wine openers, you've amassed quite the collection. A soft French blue will complement your Burgundy red beautifully.
Which style would you choose to decorate your butler's pantry?
