Now that I have [X], I think I could have lived without it.
I want to know what all of you would fill in for [X] in the statement, "Now that I have [X], I think I could have lived without it."
I just read the great thread "Fill in - Now that I have [X], I would never go back to [Y]." (Thanks for starting that, Shannonplus2. It was very helpful as I wrap up my new layout.)
Shannon introduced the thread by referring to "biggest waste of money in your kitchen" or "best low-cost idea" threads. Well, I did a search for those threads and didn't find them. (Please let me know if I missed them, know I'm a noob, did search from the bottom searchbox but didn't feel like scrolling through the 40-some pages that came up.)
And I just decided to move my cooktop in the new kitchen to an island, so I'll need an island vent, so I'll need to cut corners somewhere. $1600 or more corners. *gasp*
So would any of you say, perhaps:
Now that I have the new engineered quartz counters, I think I could have lived with formica for a few years....
Now that I have a new refrigerator, I think I could have lived with the old one for a while...
Now that I have a double oven and a microwave, I never use all of them at once...
Now that I have a single-bowl, 10" deep sink, I think I could've lived with a 7"?
I.e., what would you cut from your kitchen design?
Thank you in advice for the answers and honesty,
