Final Cabinet Design Take II
Thanks all for the advice so far. We've got a few days left before pulling the trigger time for our new build.
From the comments on the last design, we decided to remove the OTR microwave and do an under cabinet Broan range hood instead. The microwave will be in the countertop bookcase to the left of the fridge instead.
We also added the fridge panel and brought out the above fridge cabinets to 24" deep based on feedback.
We do have one other drawer stack on the stove wall, even though it isn't correct in the pictures. The 18" door to the right of the sink is a trash pull-out.
The door style is shaker, painted white. We aren't sure whether we are doing the five panel on the drawers or slab, which is why they are in some pics and not others. :-) I really wanted slab on the top smaller drawers and five panel on the lower level deeper drawers, but our stock cabinet company (Merillat) doesn't do that, so it's all or nothing. I want bronze cup pull hardware but I'm worried about it looking too busy on the smaller drawers (plus its an extra $700).
I'm also not sure if the under cabinet molding works with simple shaker style.
Anything else I'm missing?
Stove wall which will have a drawer drawer stack:
Fridge wall w/ microwave in bookcase. Bookcase is 18" to accommodate several different brands of microwave so we aren't looked in to one or two small ones:
overall shape of kitchen but old so actual cabinets are incorrect:
Thank you so much for all your advice and input. It is really appreciated!
