"Do I need corner posts?"

If you are using a standard corner unit with a door and a blank, you will need to use a corner post. Corner posts can be either purchased at a fixed size from the "Mouldings" section, or constructed from spare material like panel offcuts for example.

Corner posts space two units out at a right angle, this enables the doors to open correctly as in the diagrams below, and in are important if fitting any unit containing drawers in the corner to allow the drawers to open past any handles you may have fitted.

Below is an example of a standard corner unit, but the same applies to all corner units fitted with a door and a blank (including pull out corner units)

“"We were extremely impressed with Kitchen Collection; their web site, their showroom, quality of the products supplied and all the help we received be it on line, on the phone and in the showroom. All advice was readily given. As well as the units we purchase our appliances through the sister web site because, despite searching the web, they offered the most competitive prices. All goods were delivered as arranged very securely packaged to avoid damage in transit. Great to be able to choose carcass interior and to have a bespoke bridging unit in order to fit over a tall fridge. We have recommended you to several people who have been impressed with our finished kitchen. Kind regards Patricia" ”
