What’s crack-a-lackin’, kitchen companions?
Whilst humming away to myself today – surrounded by the glorious kingdom of wooden kitchens that is the deTerra flagship showroom – I got to thinking about the arrangement of cabinets in some of our lovely kitchen display sets.
One of the many considerations up for discussion when creating a gorgeous new deTerra kitchen is the placement of oak cabinets, in relation to adjacent walls. What I mean by this, kitchen crew, is that cupboard doors need to be able to open sufficiently to add and remove shelving, and to make sure handles do not damage the wall (and vice versa!).
Assuming the average depth of a door handle is 30mm, I would advise leaving a gap of 50mm between the cabinet and the wall. This is particularly recommended if you fancy fitting an integrated fridge or fridge freezer unit inside one of our splendid solid wood cabinets, as the door will extend back further than 90 degrees, so you can whip out your salad drawer in a jiffy.
If you’d like to disguise this gap, our timber pilasters are just the ticket! We have a range of 50mm-wide decorative pilasters that are perfect for the job, and can be finished with Farrow & Ball paint to match your cabinet frontals.
Order kitchen door samples today to find out just how fabulous they are – from the comfort of your home! Samples can be refunded against your order when you purchase your kitchen from deTerra, and are available in a sanded, lacquered or painted finish.
Well, I’d better dash, but do get in touch if you have any questions!
