    Question quick question re end Panel Sizing for a pantry????

    hey guys, im about to renovate our kitchen but im unsure of the lengths of the end panels needed for my pantry...

    here is a top down view of the pantry, im thinking it should be like the pic on the right where the end panel is as deep as the depth of the pantry + the door thickness...

    would that be right??

    The pic on the right would be my choice, depending upon hinge style and edging of the panel.

    The one on the right is what my pantry currently looks like, and it looks nice and neat.

    Right hand version looks good.

    I do end panels at Depth of cabinet + Thickness of door + Gap between door and carcass (1 - 2mm nom.)

    Check to see if you need to scribe the panel against the wall; if you do add the depth of the scribe as well...

    Cheers,

    A few 28mm particle board screws should get you out of trouble.

    Screw from the inside of the gable into the end panel - if you get really keen you can use some adhesive spots to cover the screw holes afterwards.

    yeh i checked out that flexi place the other week - their prices seem pretty good although IMO the quality didnt look up there with the Readikits from Laminex, especially the drawer runners etc..

    just to give you an idea of the readikit, i ordered the following the other day and it came to about $4k..

    2 x 3 drawer base unit, 700mm wide with 1 cutlery + 2 pot drawers built with Hettich Innotech softshut drawer system

    1 x 3 door corner base unit, 900mmR x 1200mmL w

    1 x 2 door base unit, 900m wide

    1 x 3 drawer base unit, 900mm wide with 3 equal pot drawers built with Hettich Innotech softshut drawer system

    1 x 600mm wide x 1950H pantry unit

    1 x 900w x 570d x 495H overhead fridge cabinet

    all doors (inc pantry), drawer fronts and pantry end panel, all finished in 2 pack gloss

    Is that direct from Laminex?? If so do they have a display?
    So Flexi have average quality, guess I might save my self the drive.

    yeh save yourself the drive mate in my opinion..

    with the laminex stuff, the display centre is on scarb bch road between Kresta and Archipelago opposite JB hifi and you order all the gear and doors etc through a place called Cullitys which is pretty much on the corner of Wanneroo Road and Balcatta Road...
    you can get the quote forms from either place and it looks pretty complicated at first but is really quite easy once you have a good look at them..

    I noticed on my readikit order form you can get custom cabinets made up through them now with about a $30 surcharge as long as its based on a current readikit..
    i.e. my fridge unit was only supposed to be 305mm deep but i increased it to 578 to match the pantry..
    so theoretically you should be able to choose any height, depth and width for any carcass within reason just about

    I checked out the laminex display, but have decided to go with Ikea because it fits into our kitchen, has a style we like and has warranty. I will go with a custom bench thru a post former.
