A problem that many of our customers face is how to deal with awkward piers that cannot be removed. While a simple cupboard, cut-out to allow space for the pier, can be a great way to work around this problem, sometimes that is just not right for the aesthetics of the space. One solution that we have found works well is to create a set of drawers with a u-shaped cut-out, as shown in this recently installed Higham Furniture kitchen. The drawers give the run a much more balanced look, while the cut-out allows for the use of full-depth runners, creating a more stable drawer with minimal loss of space.
This is one of the benefits of a truly bespoke design. As we create each unit specifically for the space it will occupy, we can take the time to find solutions to those irritating problems encountered by those trying to make ready-made furniture fit in with their vision for the perfect kitchen.
If you have an awkward issue with your kitchen plan and would like to talk it through then please do get in touch and we will be happy to help.
