    Hi

    Just want advise, can I put homebase kitchen doors and drawerfronts on B&Q (IT) kitchen units.

    Are there any problems in doing this? Any advise is welcome.

    Thanks:)

    Provided the dimension match it’s fine , door hinge positions may differ but can be remedied .

    I take it the carcasses are already in place? It may be obvious but buy one appropriate sized door and drawer front and give it a go from homebase - if it's too much hassle then you can reassess without having spent a load of money.

    Or use a tape measure and avoid any cost .

    Fair point but it depends how well you trust your measuring skills IMO I'd still only buy one door & drawer to begin with even if the measurements seem to match up.

    The unit and door sizes match exactly they don’t vary a few mm here and there .

    I mean where the holes are for hinges etc - they may vary between homebase and B&Q.

    I know! :LOL::LOL::LOL:

    My point was just that if you're not 100% confident in your measurements it's better to buy one door & drawer to check rather then load up the car with a kitchen's worth - yes it could cost a little bit but it's always worth checking the clearance bins at B&Q.

    My point was that it doesn’t matter as hinge plates are easily moved .
