80's Kitchen Before and After

My husband and I bought a short sale last year and since then, we have been consumed with remodeling projects. Here are the before and after pictures of our kitchen. What do you think?
We ended up raising the ceiling 16" inches and pretty much gutted the whole thing.
Check out the low cabinet over the bar... standing next to it, the bottom was at my chin. This whole cabinet had to go.
Nice fluorescent lighting and dropped ceiling.
Beyond the window was an 8" bar... we actually had to replace the window (to be up to code) and extended the outside bar to 12" (if I recall correctly, it may have been 15")..
Nice repair the previous owners did behind the fridge. lol
Range with hood.... no microwave.
Raised ceiling, removed the cabinet over the bar. Can lighting.
Microwave above stove! YAY
Double sink... LOVE
