Kitchen remodel questions


I'm starting to plan for a kitchen remodel. My problem is that My walls are 119" not 120" apart. This is creating measurement issues with the cabinets. Does this mean I'll have to take out the drywall and mount them directly to the studs to get my extra 1"???

Re: Kitchen remodel questions


Just an amateur here with one kitchen completed. I believe you need to have a small gap at the wall so the drawers and doors can open easily. A filler strip that matches the cabinet fills the gap.

If I read it correctly, the combined width of your cabinets is too wide by 1". Right?

Look at each cabinet, particularly the face frames. While not an ideal practice, you may be able to shave off 1/4" in 4 places or 1/2" in two places.

If you can post some photos of the cabinets, that would help.
