@Ed – Sounds good – i ve got Kitchen Cabinets on my bucket list too. What style are you thinking about?

We’re going with pretty non-ornate solid wood frame & raised panel doors, with face frame cabinets (prefinished ply for the boxes). Not full overlay, but we’re keeping the reveal somewhat small. Color, still TBD, my wife keeps changing her mind, but it’ll probably be some shade of mid-brown, I’ve had pretty decent results in the past mixing dye to her standards, so I’m not worrying about that yet. Full extension, soft close drawers, soft-close doors. Removing a small 28” deep wall that currently creates our inconveniently-placed pantry, and making a new pantry cabinet. Haven’t had a chance to check the innards of the soffit yet, but hoping to knock that out and gain another 8” of space on top. I know where the venting is, and we have electric baseboard heating, so short of any electrical, I suspect they’re pretty empty. Also putting in a new tile floor, tearing out our unusable bar space for another row of base cabinets and a pass-through, and replacing the heaters with toe-kick heaters.

Our current cabinets are probably the original ones from 1976, and the drawers are literally falling apart, and the too-thin doors have been painted and are chipping.
