Keep the pantry vs. extended countertop/cabinets?

2 years ago

My kitchen designer wants to remove the pantry, extend the countertop and add cabinets above and below. I know it will be beautiful BUT I can't imagine that cabinets will be at all comparable to a pantry where I can see everything, and where small appliances plus food will fit. If he changes it, it will have lovely under cabinet lighting and perhaps the central upper cabinet will be glass for display. Will I be sacrificing function for beauty? Where will I put stuff like mixer, onions/potatoes, food?
