"Overlay" Outside Corner Cabinet4/29
I am working on designing a kitchen with "shaker" style full overlay maple doors (I guess no longer really shaker, huh?).
I have everything pretty much figured out, except that the client wants an outside corner to have a glass display case using overlay doors as well. I first designed just this part with inset doors, as I thought that was the only practical way to build it. They asked that it have overlay doors as well.
The architect plan I am working off of shows that the corner keeps its post and a bit of drywall.. does this make sense?
In sketchup, all I could figure out was to put the doors there..
Does anyone know of an example of what I am after, with possibly a bit more to it than just doors showing.. maybe a nice shelf and or frame detail? I checked google images, and most are freestanding units.
I would not hinge a door on both sides. Make one side fixed, hinge the other. But if you have to slide the cabinet in and around a corner post, you'll need a radius or chamfered back so you can roll it into place.
Maybe just take your predrilled/prefinished parts with you and attach them to the studs inside the framing.
You would need two sides, a top, bottom, some strips to box in the corner stud and however many shelves you figured. Have the doors overlay the finished walls.
That bit with the corner bead will probably never lay flat at the top and bottom edges. Just the way the mud fills in the bead.
Good points, guys.
Rich, they did ask for it having doors on both sides.. this was also counter-intuitive to me.
JP, I will be doing the drywall myself, so that can all be accounted for. Def. would need to worry about that if someone else was doing it though.
As stated, a lot of it would need to be brought and applied in pre-finished pieces.
I am working on some options for the look, and did this. I feel like it could use a bit more embellishment than just doors on the side of a wall..
I like one without the Painted corner 200% better.
You could build a nice cabinet with the door at 45, cut that corner off a bit and make the room seem bigger.
I agree; the one with exposed drywall corner does not seem right.
Added a bit more detail..
Also, I will mention the 45 degree idea to them. That would open up that corner nicely if they are willing to lose the display space.
