    Using base units as wall unit?

    Using base units as wall unit? 13th Jan 19 at 5:42 PM
    I'm putting cupboards in a utility room and wanted the depth of the base units (no worktop needed) all along one wall

    Is it possible to put base cabinets on top of eachother with no gap -all along and up one wall? What might we need to consider when doing this?

    Thanks in advance!

    Ooh where??

    Is it larder cabinets?

    I got a quote from bnq (base cabinets) which worked out to less than 500 to fill space 220width and 210 height with cabinets. Larder cabinets worked out to 2k for the same space

    Is there a reason why you had a worktop between cabinets? I presume the worktop got completely covered anyway? Many thanks

    The Ikea larder units are 40 each for the carcass.

    The cheapest door is 16. The most expensive is 129.

    You buy shelves,hinges and handles separately, but they're a few quid each.

    The top cabinets didn't run the full width of the wall whereas the bottom ones did.

    Made a nice solid base to put the top cupboards on though.

    Utility full wall do you even need or want standard units?

    Decide what the space is for and customise.

    Full depth full hight is almost walkin getting to the stuff at the back will be a nightmare.

    Think about what is going in the space.
