I am short. Five foot one inch, to be exact. I like being short and have never had a problem with my height, or lack thereof.
The people who built this house in the 1940s were very tall. They designed their kitchen specially for tall people.
Now, I am accustomed to using a step ladder to reach the top shelf of any kitchen. No problem. But in this kitchen, my kitchen, I have to stretch nearly to full height to reach the first shelf! It's a bit Alice In Wonderlandy.
There's plenty of cabinet space, but I'm not sure how useful most of it will be. Weird. (NN, naturally I thought of you.)
