"Where do I need end panels?"

As a general rule, end panels should be used anywhere where the side of a unit is going to be visible. All of the end panels we supply are "Plant On" panels and should be fixed to the outside of the unit, this gives the best finish for your new kitchen

Using a plant on end panel will mean that you can then run these down to the floor for the neatest possible plinth stop on base units, you can bring the panel in line with the front of the door (i.e. you don’t see a gap between door and carcass at the side), and using plant on end panels is far better than using replacement gables as you don’t end up with a mismatch in interior colour inside the unit when open.

The image below shows a typical kitchen plan, the areas you would typically use end panels in this kitchen are shown in red:

End panels come in two forms, some door manufacturers make a series of different sized panels which are easier to manouver and cut, some make a single large panel from which you can cut several smaller panels and is more cost effective.

In a large number of ranges you can also choose between either plain end panels or panels with a tongue and groove look (T&G).
