For quite some time now, images of kitchens without range hoods have been popping up all over Instagram and home decor sites. The kitchen will be done to the nines but have no ventilation in sight.

Last week, I was following along in a forum discussion about kitchen designs. A woman was asking questions about here plans for her new kitchen. She seemed to really have a grasp on what she wanted, but she asked if anyone could answer the question, “butler’s pantry vs scullery – what’s the difference?”There were a few people who got it correct, but I was surprised at how many people had never heard of a scullery and weren’t really sure what was the purpose of a butler’s pantry. Needless to say, that sparked this little article.
