Question

Kitchen cabinet help


I am installing new kitchen cabinets and my wife wanted a corner cabinet installed right next to the under cabinet microwave. The issue now is that the door to the cabinet will only open 45 degrees. Does anyone know of a hinge that would extend out from the frame about 4 inches and then swing 135 degrees so we can have full access to the cabinet? Has anyone had success attaching a cabinet hinge to a drawer slide to allow for this?
Attached is a pdf of the kitchen layout... Thanks
Mike

can you pull the corner cabinet out 3 inches then get a narrower one on the left , say 12 instead of 15 , 15 instead of 18 , whatever in on the left side .

Put the hinges on the top of the cabinet so you can lift the door towards the ceiling.

A whole lot simpler to add a 3 or 4" spacer between the corner cabinet and the one to it's right.

No, Fix'n it is correct, there is no room for a filler strip. The original layout of the kitchen had a flat cabinet in that corner. My wife wanted to use a corner cabinet to use the space more efficiently. It was my dumb idea to suggest the under cabinet microwave. But I would be having the same problem if I went with a vent hood as well.
Thanks for the input.

I am interested in seeing how you figure this one out. I would be willing to bet you are not the only one that has "painted yourself into a corner". :-)

It does look like adding a filler strip to the right side and replacing the door with one that is narrower would be one possible solution.

Good luck.
Mike
