Curious - A little less than a happy high

Curious
I find myself inclined to hang our pot rack in spite of the vast cabinet storage in the new kitchen. I think part of the issue is that the cabinetry is designed more for contractors than efficiency. They were just nice enough to impress a potential buyer on a quick walk-through, but they don't have much else going for them. For instance, nearly all of the cabinets under the counter have two shelves (the bottom and then a half shelf midway up to the top) and a single drawer which limits just how useful they can be. Better, they're vinyl coated particle board, which places some pretty serious limits on possible hacks.

Because I'm just that anal I believe in interactive journaling, y'all may be faced with a a photo of the space with a request for assistance in mapping our gear.

I love mapping out spaces! Start with a graph paper map of the room and to-scale graph paper cutouts of your stuff.

This project is complicated by the fact that while I don't mind having many pots stowed, I hate not having skillets and strainers at my fingertips. Open plan kitchens have some disadvantages (most notable in our last place was the inevitable settling of bread flour onto most everything), but I'm convinced that an urge to stow everything behind closed doors suggests priorities outside of cooking.
