Will undercounter freezer drawers (only) hurt resale?
I'm still struggling with refrigerator/freezer options. I thought I had decided on thermador columns but I saw the 18" freezer in person and just can't do it. Not that I need much space, but what a messed-up design - you can't put anything on the doors, they're small with a triangular edge. I liked the 24" column but the 18" doesn't do it for me.
So I'm back to considering Sub-zero 42" side-by-side or thermador (or Miele) 30" fridge-only and putting in under-island freezer drawers (brand to be determined).
Both my kitchen designer and contractor suggested this may not be a good idea because if I sell the house, the buyers will expect a "real" freezer. For me it's not an issue, I have an upright freezer in the basement where I store most of my freezer items. But are they correct? Should I go with a 42" sxs? Having a 30" allows me to have a larger pantry between the fridge and wall ovens, AND gives me more refrigerator space.
(I'm not planning on moving in the next 10 years, but you never really know...)
