We like it bright and open. That's why the second house we viewed today appealed to us. High ceiling of about 3.2m and full length windows opening right to a patio and pool! But we will not be able to have the same jet setting and frivolous lifestyle for a long while after getting the place. It's a steep close to $3m! But, we'll be able to live and retire comfortably :)
Love kitchen drawers. However, I suggest they are not too long. Who wants to open a really really long drawer to grab a couple of utensils. Also gets in the way of someone standing on the end of the bench space prepping.
