Newbie: How to do a kitchen island properly

Recommended Posts

I want to have a kitchen island that will have cabinet doors on several sides and a dishwasher in one end.  Do I create one large base cabinet to do this or several small back-to-back cabinets?

 

I initially tried a single large cabinet, but couldn't figure out how to have several sides of the island be "the front".

 

thanks,

Back to back. You could make one cabinet the thickness of the door -- 3/4" for example.

Think of cabinets as modules that fit together. When you order cabinets at Home Depot or Lowe's they are organized as individual modules that then are fitted together on site. The same is true for cabinets generally as well as islands. you add as many modules, facing in whatever direction to suit your purposes. You then use the cabinet specification dialog to further customize each module.
