Minor Issue But Curious

Recommended Posts

I built a kitchen island with standard 24" deep cabinets on the front and I have butted 18" cabinets to the back of them to give me a 42" deep island without the eating area overhang.  On the ends in both vector or elevation view you see the separation line between the back of the cabinets.  I have both cabinet with a flat back with the toe kick and the countertop overhang.  Again, it minor but I don't want my install crew to think there are two end panels butting together there to create a seam.

I think this is correct, it's two cabinets back to back. In real life there would be a joint there, just add an end panel or make a cabinet the full depth and configure the front and back faces.

Rob,

 

I put another cabinet on the side, make it 1/4" thick and you will have same size side panels or just a blank area.

This is not a work around.  It is how it is done, both in design software and the real world.

I have end panels on my island as well as panels on the back where the overhang is.
