Hello there and happy Friday! As I write this it's 10 days until Christmas and I haven't wrapped the first present yet... shh!! This weekend I'll get it all done. If you didn't catch last week's post about a beautiful new construction home I'm working on, you can find it here. The main kitchen design was featured and today is all about the prep kitchen or scullery that will accompany it.
As I mentioned, the homeowners commented on how much they entertain and have family stay with them. They spend tons of time in their kitchen and need one that is highly functional. The more we got to talking about it, I introduced the idea of a scullery over a butler's pantry because full meals can be prepared in it. It includes all of the appliances you would find in a kitchen, just in smaller sizes. It allows you to dirty up a background kitchen while keeping your main kitchen neat and tidy when the occasion calls for it.
Below is the floorplan and layout of the scullery which will be hidden behind secret pantry doors made to look like cabinetry!
Stealing space from a former master shoe closet, we were able to tweak the house plans and increase the size of the pantry. A door was added to access this little kitchen right from the master bedroom so when the homeowners want coffee or snacks with privacy, no problem! Hello coffee and quiet!
The scullery will include the following appliances:
wall oven/microwave combo unit
nugget ice maker
Here are 2D elevations of each wall. There is a lot of open shelving for pantry storage because it's a long, narrow space AND the homeowner plans to organize everything in clear labeled containers for a true Home Edit style.... can't wait to see this one!!
Now, we both love the Schumacher wallpaper that screams modern coastal with palm leaves but I'm still debating if we should use it in the scullery as well... you'll see it in the 3D renderings below and it does look amazing.
Hope you enjoyed the tour! We are designing this project ahead of time so when construction starts, it should be smooth sailing!
