The Scullery, with its origin from long ago, has seen a recent resurgence in home design. As more and more of us are finding that we must combine our work life with our personal on a greater level, such as working from home, these ancillary spaces offer more room. The two sculleries pictured here offer to very distinct views of modern-day scullery.
The first of two is very traditional, both in aesthetic design and functional design. Here we see there is a functioning sink, warming ovens, microwave, dishwasher, plenty of cabinet space, and counter surface. Taking full advantage of everything found here, one could prepare a meal to near completion prior to bringing it out for a few minutes in the kitchen oven before serving it the quests of the evening.
The second scullery pictured is much more of a transitional scullery. Here we see an extra refrigerator, plenty of storage, but we do not see an additional stove, microwave, dishwasher, and most importantly, there is not a sink. There was a time that running water was a requirement for a space to receive the designation of the scullery. However, this example trades the sink for a small eating area. Not exactly an office space, but more than adequate for attending to some emails and other light paperwork.
The scullery has evolved into a space that is the reflection of each homeowner’s needs, wants, and personal style. Countless variations and options to suit every need.
