    Hi,

    I am looking to get a new kitchen base unit to add into an existing magnet kitchen,........ unfortunately they have changed unit size from 730mm height to 704mm

    Does anyone know where to buy a 730mm high base unit, the closest I have seen is about 720mm but would still leave a gap when door open. Doesn't need to be magnet, could be another supplier.

    All heights exclude legs.

    Thanks in advance

    If they have changed the height of unit, can you get a matching door of the right height and hinge positions ?

    If you've got the door (or are having open shelves etc), then you only need 3 or 4 MFC panels and a couple of struts to make your own cabinet. A lot of B&Qs etc will cut sheet materials to size.

    Can you use the 720 base unit and jack the legs until it contacts the underside of the worktop, then fix a small filler strip under the base floor.litl
