Making Kitchen Island Cabinets
The islands have become a popular piece in modern kitchens. The kitchen island cabinets can serve as allowance for preparations, as a serving table or fulfill both functions. With the necessary planning, you can build an island using a cupboard under counter and a suitable surface. According to the site “this old house”, a useful island has at least 1.20 m long and 60 cm deep. However, you must leave a space to allow movement around the island and the use of appliances located in the kitchen.
Make sure there is enough space between wall and kitchen island cabinets, to fully open the door of the dishwasher, oven and refrigerator. Find out about sizes under countertops. Place it exactly where you want to embed and put masking tape on the floor near the four corners.
Measure the thickness of the cabinet walls at ground level. Remove the cabinet and attaches a plank of 15.24 cm along the ribbon marking the width of the kitchen island cabinets walls. Place on top of the boards in the corners. Adhere the top to the base cabinet and secure them in place with drywall screws 3.18 cm through the end of the hob until it touches the top of the cabinet.
