We wanted a vintage style kitchen for our new house with a simple full inset shaker door. After tackling the Bathroom Vanity I was ready for the challenge. I built the uppers, lowers, and island off site at our previous home and had to wait until we moved in to do the pantries because we hadn’t finalized the fridge yet. The pantries are 30” deep so I installed full extension slide outs to make it easier for my wife to access things. The drawers in the island are also deep and high so she can pack them full of tea towels and wash cloths etc.. I installed power outlets at each end of the island just under the space where the stools go so they don’t show otherwise.

You did a great job on both design and construction! Really like the pull-out for heavy appliances that puts them at a comfortable height for lifting – very ergo-friendly. Also like the way you boxed in the sections above the wall units and pantries to give a nice custom look, as do finishing touches on corners for the kick spaces.

The design and functionality are for the long haul, too. I doubt anyone would ever get tired of looking at or using it. You’ve gotta be PROUD of this. Thanks for sharing!

All that extra pullout storage is great! It has a very timeless look to it, well done.
