Euro Cabs with furniture toekick7/27
Surprised I haven't come across this in my career. But now I have.
I have a client that wants the full overlay and no face frames but wants the furniture toe kick look.
On the wall cabinets it doesn't seem like an issue, just place them over the normal gable toe and line them up with the bottom of the doors.
I guess the end of the run cabinet and the island is where I find issue. The cabinets all have end panels. I guess I'm forced to do a butt joint against the end panel, yes?
Or is there another way to make the joint more seamless.
I have a freestanding pantry/refer cab that will have the same issues as the island. Just wondering if anyone has gone through this (of course someone has) and came up with a solution. Or is it just a butt joint and there ya go?
We do furniture base all the time, mostly on islands. All our bases are separate from the cabinets and we use 3/4 plant on gables for all the exposed ends. It is easy to just miter the base all around the island or miter and return it to the wall.
I am interested to see what others do with your situation.
Do you run the finished ends to the floor? If so you would just have to butt it into the panel.
When i have done this in the past I would make my finished panels to match the height of the door then run the base all the way around. Assuming the face of the base is flush with the face of the door, or close to it.
Yes, I do run the end panels down to the floor. I like to have the strength of the gable going all the way down to the floor to support the substantial weight of a large countertop.
I use ~1-1/2" (typically just the top edge + blocks for clips) molding/toe kick wrapped around with the FE sitting on top.
Very unlikely that I will be using a wrap around base as the toekick+.
