Unleashing the Magic of Chef’s Pantries: Transform Your Kitchen with Dovecote

Published: 8 months ago

When considering your new kitchen, you may want to contemplate the addition of either a chef’s pantry or a slide-back dresser. Despite its traditional nature, the chef’s pantry has become the focal point in bespoke kitchen design.

Known affectionately as the “appliance garage,” this clever creation features a spacious double dresser without a base, with doors that fold back to reveal an ideal storage space for toasters, coffee machines, and even the trendy air fryer (a recent addition to kitchen design!).

It seems that everyone has joined the air fryer brigade, making it a “must-have” in every home. Mixers and blenders also pose the question, “Where should we store them all?” These appliances are an integral part of our daily lives and should be easily accessible, rather than hidden away in a standard cupboard.

At Dovecote, we take pleasure in incorporating these functional furniture items into family kitchens. The feedback we’ve received has been fantastic, as they add practicality to kitchens of all sizes. By keeping the appliances out of sight, we eliminate clutter and create a more user-friendly workspace. This is particularly beneficial in open-plan settings where the kitchen often doubles as a living, dining, or home office area.

As a self-proclaimed messy cook, I find that keeping the worktops clear while preparing culinary masterpieces is made easier with these additions. Well, that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it!

At Dovecote Kitchens Direct in Barlaston, Staffordshire, we specialise in creating chef’s pantries in various configurations and sizes, tailored to suit your specific needs. Additionally, many clients have opted to transform these pantries or appliance garages into mini bar areas. By adding a mirrored back and interior lighting, an exquisite focal point is created, perfect for displaying gin bottles and glassware.

Whether utilised for breakfast essentials in the morning or as a delightful drink station in the evening, these design ideas bring joy and value to your new kitchen.

Our experienced designers are continuously exploring innovative concepts to incorporate into your kitchen, and we offer a complimentary home planning service to help you make the most of our offerings.

All our kitchens are bespoke and supplied directly from our factory, ensuring flexibility, choice, and exceptional value. We eagerly await the opportunity to assist you in creating your dream kitchen.
