The 3 things I like the best in my new kitchen..
1. The Walk In Pantry
2. The lighting..(doesn’t show well in pictures)
3. The Flooring
The 2 Things I’d do differently
1. Don’t like the microwave set low in an island, might try to switch out later for a micorwave drawer, or might move to the pantry
2. Previously had a Monogram 48 in fridge.. Thought with the 2nd fridge in the pantry AND a beverage fridge the 42 would be fine.. Wish I went with the 4.
