And could you just die, seeing all that storage in one glorious space? Remember what we were dealing with originally? To me, that is the very definition of a world of change.

Don’t get me started on how inefficient our current kitchen is, even though it’s larger. (Oops, here I go anyway.) I feel like Beigeland is yet another of those poorly designed, quickly planned (and built) houses that in many ways doesn’t take into account how a family might actually live in said house.
I miss a lot of things about the old kitchen. One item on that long list is deep, wide drawers rather than lower cabinets. Lower cabinets (without any pull-out hardware) are a complete pain — especially once you’re used to the efficiency of drawers.
