Sideboards are ideal additions to your collection of kitchen cabinets. Aside from their decorative touches, sideboard kitchen cabinets take a relatively small amount of square footage and are able to keep a wide range of essential items from table linens, utensils, glasses, serving pieces, and other dishware. Designed to stand alone, this can be placed anyplace convenient and if you tire with the layout, moving it around is not a problem. Also considered as furniture and décor, this addition can easily become the centerpiece of your design.
A full carcass is commonly known as a kitchen cabinet box. Base kitchen cabinet boxes are built with two sides known as gable ends, a bottom and a back. Upper cabinets normally have two gable ends, a top, bottom and a back board. Base cabinet boxes do not require a top board because the countertop normally covers that opening.
Most manufacturers employ a service void of approximately 50mm at the back of base units and this is essential not only for plumbing and electrical services but also for scribing to the walls if necessary. To ensure that no gaps are visible where the last unit meets the wall you may need to scribe the cabinet. To do this, level the cabinet and clamp it to the adjacent one leaving it 30mm proud of the front edge, clamp the units together, set the compass to 30mm between pencil and point and run the point of the compass down the wall keeping it parallel with the pencil point. The pencil line left on the carcass will act as a guide for cutting with a jigsaw. After cutting, fit the cabinet as described above. This will leave a perfect finish to the wall.
