We watched one of those "house flipping" shows on TLC last night, and we were surprised to learn a little rule-of-thumb regarding kitchen cabinets. The flipping advisor told one of the flippers not to construct "wrong-way cabinets" in the kitchen, that is, not to mount the cabinet doors so that they opened from right-to-left rather than from left-to-right. She said that buyers are turned off by "wrong-way cabinets." I never even heard of "wrong-way cabinets" until last night, and it certainly does not matter to me which way they open. To tell you the truth, this sounds like one of those archaic biases against left-handers (I am not a south-paw myself). When we were looking to buy houses, I never even thought to see which way the kitchen cabinets opened. But at least one potential buyer on last night's show did.
