Replace existing fridge with a counter-depth model. Boom, instant hella-flush :lol:

Moving sinks = plumbing changes = :waxer: . Try to talk her out of it, or offer to get a new sink/faucet but leave it in the same place. High impact change that you can do yourself.

These days you can get shit-tons of options to make existing cabinets more modern and functional, from soft-close hinges to pull-out drawers, dividers, etc.

My :scrooge: $.02...
Concur, in spades...

I will offer to replace sink with a deeper one to minimize splash, install pull outs and acquiesce on some nice ass countertops....

:fuckyeah:

All good ideas, IMO. Deep sink is your answer. :like:

I'll also say that I really like our counter depth fridge. Sure you lose some space, but you also don't lose things burried way back there. Also looks :nice: and the fridge itself appears to be less massive in the kitchen.

Love our counter fridge, too. And yes, while shallower they tend to be taller. At least ours is, so it still has full size fridge 25 cubic feet of space.

I don't think ours is any taller, but zero complaints about capacity.

I was originally thinking that we'd want to do a full kitchen remodel including moving everything, but recently I'm questioning the utility of spending what would likely be nearly 6 figures. A smaller fridge that actually kind of fits in our stupid space with french doors plus an automatic icemaker would actually go a long way toward making our lives easier for like $2000. Of course we'd eventually have to replace our other appliances and sink because the whole world has gone to stainless and our shit is all white... :wasteful:

Counter depth keeps shit up front so you stay on top of freshness/spoliation issues. If you need more "space" what you need is a garage fridge. The life essential nobody talks about.

Yep, or a small freezer in the basement, which is what we have.

We have space for neither of those extras, but realistically I don't think we exceed 50% of our fridge/freezer capacity except for Thanksgiving prep/leftovers... I can :dealwithit: for one week a year.

I have a garage fridge and I am getting a stand up freezer from my father-in-law's estate soon. I am excited about the freezer as it will allow me to order a side of beef from a local Mennonite farm.

She wants the look of flush front surfaces. Our current cabinet configuration on the fridge wall is 12 inch deep uppers and much deeper lowers. So a shallower fridge is not the answer.

I am thinking of perhaps trying to match our current cabinets with new in that section and if I cant, then perhaps spring for "refinishing" the other sections to match whatever I can find that closely approximates the style of the existing units.
