    Hi all, I think i may already know the answer to this, but looking for some thoughts or feedback,

    We're having a kitchen refresh, by changing out the worktops and replacing the sink unit.

    We've found a sink that we like, and the details say minimum unit size 600mm. But the unit where the sink is currently, is a 500mm unit, which is next to a corner 800mm unit.

    We cant change out the unit for a 500mm, as the back door is next to the current unit.

    Am I correct in thinking, that all i would simply need to do, would be to cut through the sides of the 500mm and 800mm units, to allow the sink to fit, if needed?


    Oddly the replacement sink bowl is the same size as the current bowl, but overall, its also a smaller sink / drainer size. So it shouldn't be a problem.

    Yes. My next kitchen project involves cutting a 500mm unit down to about 470mm and installing a sink. It is doable, but it will be tight

    Cheers, i'm thinking I can cut out a section of the cupboard sides, if needed.

    Appreciate your help. Thanks
