Which corner cabinet should I order?
The choice is either a cabinet that traverses the corner (Splay or L Shape) or a straight cabinet with a corner post that returns the run in the opposing direction (Corner Blank). The disadvantage of a splay or an L shape cabinet is that it will cover an equal distance in either direction, while a standard corner unit can be more flexible as you can return almost any size of cabinet and adjust the corner post to suit.
All styles of corner cabinet can be supplied with storage solutions. The splay and L shape can have rotary carousels fitted and the corner blank can be fitted with either a Magic Corner or a Le Mans pull out shelves, either way storage is maximised.
Splay corner cabinets have fixed sizes which are set by the width of the door across the angle. The only way to adjust the distance for the corner would be to add fillers between the corner unit and the adjacent cabinet.
L Shape Corner
L shape corner cabinets can be adjusted to either increase or decrease the width and length, obviously there are tolerances we must work between, if you have a requirement for a non-standard size then please either give us a call, chat with us online or drop us an email so we can advise the best route to take.
Corner blank cabinets are generally built to twice the width of the opening door, although the blank side can be stretched or shortened to suit your requirements. The unit should be position leaving at least a 100mm space from the corner. In effect, to position the unit, take the width of door plus the depth of the unit running in the other direction from the corner (usually 600mm) plus the amount the handle sits proud of the door, which would give the minimum. e.g. 450mm (door width of 900mm cabinet + 600mm (depth of the unit on the opposite return) + approximately 50mm (Handle standoff) = Total 1100mm.
