Depth of drawers front-to-back
I have a few banks of drawers that I am ordering extra-deep, and I was surprised that they are not as deep as I thought they would be.
Current counters and base cabs are 24" deep.
New counters will be 27" so I asked for full depth drawers in some of my drawer banks. KD is now telling me that with extra deep drawers I will have only 24" of usable space inside. I was surprised because I was expecting more space than I have now, albeit in a standard base cabinet.
This is what KD told me:
A cabinet will have almost same depth as cabinet minus the backing if it is a Shelf.
Once you add a drawer the space is taken up by drawer glides and thickness of wood for construction of the drawer.
24" deep base = 21" usable drawer
27" deep base = 24" useable drawer
Is this correct? Thanks.
