Looks like you have a lot of wall space to fill...in your year or two
plan have you considered cabs on that wall?...we remodeled our
kitchen, (made the cabinets ourselves) and have cabs on every
possible wall...many are shallow 7-9" deep. We recently added our final cab (I think
) it's only 9" deep and we use it for oil and vinegar.
in the mean time if you're looking for an inexpensive fix, until you're
ready to add more cabs -- how about a big bulletin board.
this is our daughters kitchen with a bulletin board.
