kitchen question....and the newest lil-gardener
Things are slowly taking shape in the kitchen (SLOOOOOOWLY).
DH and I can't agree on one of the final cabinets to be hung, however.
In the open space that is the far right corner (at the end of the run of cabinets), I've planned for an open cabinet. It is 24 wide and 39 high (whereas the lowest set of cabinets to it's left are 30 high).
The idea is to trim it out to be a bit of a standalone piece. However, DH feels that I won't be able to reach it and that it should sit on the counter.
My worry: counter space is at a premium, and that corner "run" is my only large space. Since I bake a lot and cook from scratch, I'm very hesitant to give it up.
So, I'm curious. What would you do? Go with an on-the-counter unit so it's a little easier to reach or save the counter space and raise it?
For reference, I was planning for the open cabinet to hold cookbooks, a few pretty mixing bowls, and some of my pitcher collection.
and here's the newest gardener....he arrived right on his due date and was born at home.
