Butcher Block Pantry Remodel Projects

Butcher Block Pantry Remodel Projects

As we transition from being stuck at home during the Summer to being stuck at home during the Fall, what better way to kick-start the baking season than with a butcher block pantry remodel? Both functional and beautiful, butcher block has rapidly grown in popularity for pantries. Clear out your clutter, reorganize, and bring some warmth and classic charm into your pantry this Fall. With a fresh new pantry, you’ll be all the more motivated to whip up some treats to mail to friends and family. Plus, expanding or reorganizing your pantry means you can better stock up on staple items and decrease the amount of home deliveries you’ll need. Below are some of our most recent favorite remodels from real life customers.

Katie created this masterpiece of a baker’s pantry, utilizing  BB Co. Brand Beech Plank Style butcher block for both the cabinet tops and the wall shelves.  Not only am I impressed by this butcher block pantry remodel, I’ll admit I’m jealous of all her storage!

Katie had an issue with a wall not being square, leaving a gap along one long and one short side on one of her tops. She came up with such a clever solution to a rather common problem, that I just have to share! Rather than ordering backsplash to try to cover the gap, or trim to fill with wedges, she purchased some simple hardwood quarter round trim, stained to match the beech wood, and applied around all edges. It looks professional and like it was the plan the whole time. Katie did a great job and I’m sure will be baking up a storm this season!

Kathleen’s project involved a bit more customization, and creates a warm aesthetic with John Boos Walnut Edge Grain tops for her client’s California pantry. The combination of the rich walnut wood with the bright shelving provides for a stunning contrast.

We went back and forth with different layout options for this U-shaped area, and decided on 45-degree miter joints to keep the flow as natural as possible. As you can see, a lot of work goes in behind the scenes to make your butcher block pantry remodel project a success!
