A couple of daft questions that somebody who knows what they are doing will answer in a few seconds. Thanks in advance.

1. Can I put a fitted fridge next to a fitted oven? Is there anything special I would need to do?

2. Can I put a fitted fridge abutting a 90 degree corner - or does the door need the space to open in?

1, Yes, but it may affect the fridge operation if the oven is used very frequently. 2,It will depend on the unit & type of hinges.
1 It will make very little difference, due to the cabinett exteriors & the airflow within the cabinett.

2 Most appliances will alow you to remove items such as drawers & shelves when the doors open to 90 degrees.
