It was difficult to watch our kitchen be torn up – gutted to the stubs, wires snaking around, plaster dust floating everywhere – but eventually, it started to look like a kitchen again. Getting those cabinets installed made a big difference, and how about that under-cabinet lighting? One of the biggest changes with the cabinetry is the addition of a pantry cabinet. Previously, our pantry storage was in our basement, which was inconvenient, to put it mildly. Now, it will be close to the range and along the same wall as the refrigerator.
