I am in the process of renewing my old kitchen my wife and I opted for an IKEA kitchen....
I had to move few pipes and while the plumber was doing this, I asked to install a tap behind the "fridge".
When the plumber did that, he installed the tap way over the fridge height, justifying that by the fact that the tap+filter should not be behind the fridge to avoid the fact that the fridge would stick out too much… he pretty much told me that the cabinet should have a sort of “gap” so it could allow the tap+filter to be over the fridge but still behind the cabinet…
The picture attached shows what I managed to understand…
Now, because I will install the cabinets myself, I wonder:
- is this design correct? (even the electrician (who came after the plumber) put the power point at the same height)
- I was planning to put a over the fridge cabinet 60 cm deep, does it means I should instead use the less deeper version?
I know this has been discussed before, but I was wondering how you guys fix it (or would fix it) with IKEA method cabinets….
Worst case scenario I will recall plumber and electrician to move pipes one more time… or maybe just modifying the 60 cm deep cabinet?!??!
Mmmm very confused
Many thanks in advance.
