If you are interested in getting DIY kitchen units installed but you don’t know how or if you want to try and install your very own kitchen then there are a couple of things that you can do about this. The first thing that you should do is make sure that you understand what a top box is and how it can be used in your kitchen unit layout. A lot of people tend to forget about the top box when they are designing their kitchen unit and this can also be a great alternative when it is compared to the traditional kitchen units that you have. You need to include them in the planning stage of your kitchen design if you want to get the best result out of this and this is just one of the many things that you need to think about when the time does come for you to get started.
What Sizes Are Available?
There are three different sizes available usually, it is possible to get other sizes but these do tend to be the most commonly available ones. You have 500mm-1000mm widths, with heights of either 290mm, 360mm or 455mm.
Your Top Box and Your Fridge
The size of top box you get will mostly depend on the type of fridge or freezer that you have. It is possible for you to use a pelmet or even a panel to cut off any space that you have at the side of your appliance but you will want to take a look at various images online if you want to find out if this is going to work for you. Your top box can be a great way for you to add a different element to your kitchen and you would be surprised at how easy it is for you to not only get the best result out of your fridge but also the top box that you have as well so make sure that you keep that in mind when the time does come for you to get started. Of course, it is important to make sure that you don’t get a top box fitted to the EXACT specifications of your fridge and the main reason for this is because you may find that your fridge breaks down after a period of time and this can leave you with a lot of problems when the time comes for you to buy another. You may have to adjust or re-fit all of your panels. If you fit a smaller top box with a panel filling the gap then you can easily cut down the panel so you can fit your fridge easier.
Where Can You Put A Top Box?
Of course, you don’t just have to put a top box above your fridge. It is also possible for you to put it above the extractor on your hub and you can also have a seamless run of wall based units as well. You can install your top box above your canopy hob and you can also fit it on the underside of your top box as well.
