The typical American kitchen (as of this writing) has a row of upper cabinets, with another, deeper row of cabinets below. The lower cabinets will have, perhaps, one drawer, and then a set of doors. This is a terrible idea. If you're considering a kitchen remodel, I'm here to convince you that every kitchen should have drawers, and not doors, for the lower cabinets. If you've already got drawers in your kitchen, well, read on and feel smug.
