christine needed a pantry unit to fit between her fridge and door of her kitchen. she also wanted it to align it with the fridge. here’s what she did with 2 akurum base units from the ikea kitchen range.
“i could take a high cabinet if it was a little shorter than the standard ones and it would snugly fit against the fridge. instead, i bought 2 akurum base units – one with drawer and one with only shelves.
used the one with drawer at the bottom and flipped the shelf unit on top, fastened with 4 screws. since the usual top has no cover i used one of the shelves in between the units. bonus is that it costs about $100 less than the high cabinet and gives a lot more flexibility on size and configuration.”
