I'm laying out a kitchen with stacked upper cabinets. (total height is 118"off the floor). The designer wants to keep the "top" uppers consistent (even above the fridge) This is a flush inset installation with a Thermador unit.
Question: Can I simply extend the upper fridge panel 7" past the usual panel height to give a finished height on the fridge at 91" vs. the usual 84".
I'd have the finish the back side of the panel, and block out the area above the fridge, but I don't think it would cause a problem. Anything I'm missing?
Yes you can, i just did one last week. Our cabinet height was 92", so we did the top panel with extra 8" and we made a solid panel above the fridge to hide the opening, just the way you mention.
I have done this as well with thermador and subzero.
Here are some pics of a subzero fridge/freezer done that way and another kitchen with Thermidor wine fridge and subzero fridge with matching cabinets above.
