I am in the design process for full extension drawers on the kitchen
side underneath our breakfast bar. The bar is essentially laminate on
top of a 2x4 frame with drywall wrapping it to finish. I was going to
get some melamine to make two enclosures that would house two full
I was pondering possible issues and design when I began to wonder if
there was a premade kitchen cabinet of the dimension and drawer
placement (vertical) that I could install rather than going through all
the trouble of building them myself.
So I poked around on a few manufacturers web sites, looking for a
catalog of available cabinet configurations to see if what I was
looking for was standard.
Couldn't find anything. Sure, they'd show me different woods and
finishes, but what I was looking for was a description of the different
configurations of a cabinet. With drawer, without, multiple drawers,
etc... Specifically, I am looking for a cabinet about 20 or so inches
wide, three feet or so tall, with two full extension drawers inside
evenly spaced (vertically). No top drawer.
Does anyone know or can provide links to a mfr that has this sort of
information on their web site?
Industry standard's that you need to take into account to maintain the
re-sale value of a home and to insure compatibility with appliances, like
For an unfinished (no substrate/counter top) Base cabinet: 34 1/2" high x
24" deep x "W" wide, where W is variable to fill space/needs as below.
For the factory made type, Base cabinet widths, "W" above, generally start
at 12" and advance in 3" increments ... maximum width (usually sink base
cabinets) vary with manufacturer.
Most any other width in between will have to be custom made.
Drawers, doors and shelves therein are "non-standard" and can be configured
to suit needs. A good place to go for this *information* is any Borg ...
they will have ready, but cheaply, made cabinets for you to look at ... and
do just look.
Kitchen cabinet manufacturers, like KraftMaid, also have "idea books" and
catalogs of various cabinet configuration for you to look at. They are free,
may be available at a Borg, so take advantage of them as a resource.
If you have to buy and nothing fits your requirements, find something close
from your research above, then proceed to a local cabinet maker and have
him/her make it custom. It is a very easy thing for any decent cabinet maker
to do, and most willingly take on one-off kitchen cabinet components.

This a 12MB pdf with descriptions and drawings of everything in the
Merillat Masterpiece line. It's a good place to get cabinet ideas.
They make a lower cabinet called a "base pot and pan storage two
drawer" that is two large (full ex) drawers in a 34 1/2" tall base in
18", 24" 30" 36" widths.
I think they also have this cabinet in other lines as well.
