Please show me your "boxed-in" frig!
My kitchen cabinets are partially installed. I had told the cabinet guy that I wanted to "box in" my refrigerator. I purchased a counter depth frig and wanted a built in "look".
I was expecting the frig to have its own "cabinet", per se. Instead, overhead you see the bottom of the upper cabinet (maple color), on the right it's just the side of the pantry (again maple color), but on the left is a very nicely painted, white, completely separate panel that runs from floor to ceiling.
On the left, the panel runs straight down, without any indentation as it would for a toe-kick. On the right, it indents at the bottom toe-kick area.
The top and right side are maple color, the left side it white. Granted, my frig will be in there covering most of it, but it just looks so unfinished to me. The material isn't even the same!
I like things to look as good "undressed" as they do with all their "clothes and accessories" on! At a minimum, he needs to paint it all white, but it looks so mis-matched to me!
What does your boxed-in frig cabinet look like? And, what would you do if you were me?
(Sorry about the poor photo quality. It is night time and the lights are not yet installed in the kitchen.)
