Hello there. I have read the kitchen installation guide and have found it very useful. I have got to the bit where I need to screw the base units to the wall. Unfortunately, there is a gap between the top of the cabinet and the wall. This seems to be because of a combination of rough floor, rough plastering near the bottom of the wall and a wall that isn't quite flat in the first place.
I have so far chipped protruding bits of plaster away which helps only a tiny bit. Now I am considering pulling the cabinets away from the wall (taking oak worktop depth into account) and maintaining the gap with the brackets. Also I thought about putting a batten along the wall and only screwing the cabinets to the batten.
I have searched on the internet and in the many kitchen installation guides they all assume that the cabinets are capable of going up against the wall.
