My idea is to use these on either side of the sink and put a smaller cabinet under each of them.
Plan B raises the bottom cabinet up to 15 inches, puts the glass door at a nice height, and leaves some dead space at the top. Once we figure out how to make this all come together in a pleasing manner, we will proceed. Both Dan and I agree, these cabinets may have to be in limbo until everything else has been installed. Hopefully that is not a huge wait from the time you read this post.
The appliance garages will need a door that operates differently from regular cabinet doors.
I am considering a tambour door although I don't think they are all that attractive.
If I do use these I have an idea for a way to change the look slightly. We'll have to wait to see if that materializes.
I did see this idea on pinterest. I rather like it but when the door is up, it prohibits one from opening the cabinet above. That could be a nuisance.
This one looks like it might be metal. I rather like that idea. It adds a different texture and brings the metal of the appliances to that side of the room.
Now it's a matter of talking this over with Dan to see how much flexibility we have in getting these in the size we need.
It seems like I have raised a lot of questions with the past posts on this remodel and have not really provided any answers. Is that how it seems to you too? It is a little loosey-goosey right now, but in a way I have found that better than to be laced up too tightly. Then when a glitch pops up, it is not quite so heart wrenching to make accommodations.
