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.
