We built a home a few years ago and I was seriously disappointed in the storage space in the kitchen cabinets. The house we owned before had custom built cabinets and the drawers were almost the same size as the drawer fronts and went almost as deep as the cabinet itself. The new ones didn't. I was thinkin' we were getting more storage space (more cabinets overall), but I ended up with less. Just a note of caution. Maybe different manufacturers have different construction parameters. But I'll check next time we buy kitchen cabinets.
