DIY Design Lowdown: End Panels

29th Jul 2020

What is an end panel and why do I need it?

Foundation cabinets are built to fit together perfectly, with as little lost space as possible. In order to do this we leave the ends of the cabinets unfinished. This works great for cabinets in a line, but the last one in the row will need an end panel to make it beautiful and look finished.

Base Cabinetry: Base end panels are made to be as wide and tall as your base cabinetry once scribed to the floor and the wall. So, base end panels are 25" wide and 36" tall.

Wall Cabinetry: Wall end panels are also as wide as your wall cabinetry is deep, but given the range of options for height, you'll need to select the height for your panel. Wall end panels are designed to be scribed to the back wall.

Tall Cabinetry: Much like the base cabinetry end panels, tall end panels are made slightly larger than the cabinets they will attach to, too accomodate the wall and floor scribe. Tall end panels are 27" wide, the height depends on the height you've chosen for your tall cabinets.

Island Cabinetry: When you create an Island using Foundation cabinetry you'll need end panels on each end so that the island looks finished. Island end panels are the similar to base cabinetry end panels, but we offer them in two widths, to fit the size of your island or peninsula.

All Foundation cabinetry end panels are 1" thick so you need to plan for this on the overall length of your design.
