Butler's pantries were originally designed for easier access to glassware and silver as a surface for setting out appetizers, drinks, and desserts.

New home butler's pantries are now often packed with even more purpose, used as meal preparation and clean up centers, often with the aid of features such as a built-in sink and wine or beverage refrigerator in addition to showcase cabinet storage.

Textured Glass Doors

Fluted or reeded glass cabinet doors will create a clean, modern look in your kitchen.

Fluted glass designs can act as a formal display case: they will slightly obscure cabinet contents, without completely masking what's inside.
