What depth should the cabinet over the frig be?
We got a cabinet depth refrigerator. The ceiling wall is low so I knew it was going to be a close fit, to be able to put the cabinet above the frig. We have tile under the frig so we can pull it out for cleaning the floor. We need to leave a small space above the cabinet and ceiling so we can open the cabinet doors, without them touching the ceiling. Where we have a problem is the hinges of the frig. There is not enough space for this cabinet over the hinges of the frig and to the ceiling. So what has been suggested to me is they cut the depth of the cabinet. Then the cabinet won't go out as far as the hinges, so it will fit. On one side of the frig are cabinets base and wall and on the other side of the frig is nothing. This is a walkway. What depth would you cut the cabinet to? Should we cut it to around 20" depth or should we have this cabinet the same depth as the upper cabinets? Please let me know what you think.
