New Kitchen Cabinets

We are in the process of updating our kitchen. Here are some pictures of the new cabinets going in. You'll notice the arch element for the upper cabinets. We have used this element in other areas of the house, as well as the bridge over the pond.
I'll be posting more pictures when we get the countertop, sink, microwave, and dishwasher installed.
Left side of the kitchen - microwave & countertop not installed yet
Eliminated the lazy susan cabinet in the corner and chose a two-drawer corner. Trying to decide between knob and bar pull.
Here's the top drawer in my corner cabinet -- such a great alternative to the lazy susan.
Sink base cabinet with drawer at the bottom to store dish towels, oven mitts, etc.
Sink base with drawer extended. Great location for dish towels, but we'll loose a little space underneath once the undermount sink goes in.
Right side of the kitchen. We will have a two-sided peninsula.
Upper cabinets to the right of the window
"Secret" door to upper cabinets. Easy access from the bar seating.
Outside of peninsula. Taller cabinets for bar seating and a 3-drawer base at the end.
Three-drawer base (36"w) at the end of the peninsula. Same bar pulls as the rest of the drawers, but much larger.
Spice pull-out base cabinet to the right of the range.
Glass doors on cabinet over the microwave & range.

    Now why didn't I think of that?? You just helped me solve a dilemma that we have in our kitchen! Your pic #8--the one where the end cabinet opens to the side...what a great idea!! We built our new house about 18 months ago & have a very tall narrow end cabinet (only about 9" wide) in the kitchen, next to the wood alcove above our 40" wide stove. By the time the cabinet was framed out in front, the opening to the shelves inside is only about 6" husband can hardly get his XL size hands inside to grab anything! And of course, all that fits inside are small bottles, cannisters, etc. Making the front door permanently closed and putting a door on the side would make this cabinet so much more accessible! Thanks for sharing your kitchen ideas with us!
