Kitchen Cabinet Door hitting adjacent Tall Unit

Postby bezza » Tue Nov 17, 2009 1:20 pm


I've just finished installing my kitchen and have a slight snagging issue.

I've got a tall unit in the corner with an integrated fridge/freezer inside it. Next to that I've got a 1000mm wide wall unit with two overlay doors. The doors each have a 437mm bar handle running along the bottom of the door.

The problem I have is that when I try to open the right hand door of the wall unit the handle hits the adjacent tall unit after only opening 1/3 of the way. It's also only a matter of time before damage is done to the tall unit by someone opening the wall unit door too far.

I was hoping to try and find some different cabinet hinges that would open the door and move it away from the tall unit as the door is opened. I've searched like mad on google but can't find anything... Does anything like that exist or has anybody else got any other ideas or solutions?

Many thanks in advance for any help!
