Good use of space, but jeeze. How does a new renovation automatically look like it needs a renovation.
That kitchen and faux distressed beam is right out of the late 80s.

Not bad, but crappy neighborhood, college dorm fridge and no dishwasher. No thanks.

"That kitchen and faux distressed beam is [sic] right out of the late 80s." Huh? I saw this unit today...There isn't one element of late 80s in that kitchen; no one had full height 3/4" glass tile backsplashes back then, no one was doing undercounter sinks, no one was doing polished concrete counters, no one had glass-front lift-up cabinet doors, no one had those drop pendants, no stainless range like that existed, the faucet didn't exist, and there was no such thing as refrigeration drawers––I would like to see the college dorm that has those! If you're going to criticize, at least try to have something constructive and relevant to say.
