pull-out pantry vs individual slide out
Need an opinion here - we have a couple of full-height pantries planned in the new kitchen. I grew up with a PoggenPohl kitchen and was all set to get a full pull-out set up where every "layer" is attached to the cabinet door and you access it all from the sides. Our KD is suggesting that we get regular opening doors and that each pantry shelf would be able to roll out/ pull forward individually. He thinks it'll be easier to open (not as heavy) and more durable. Everything is custom and the pantry shelves will be plywood.
I liked the full pull-out from the perspective that you can see everything. It did get heavy, but, heh, I used it when I was growing up so it couldn't have been that bad! It had wire sides and I wonder if the plywood sides would make it hard to see the cans etc. We could always get the KD to put in wire sides I suppose! Thoughts???
