Standard units can be modified simply with a width, depth or height change by a instruction to the factory. The cost for each dimension change is £25.
Special units require a drawing to be sent to the factory for approval and sign off. The total cost of a modified unit (design & any additional materials) beyond the cost of the standard unit that it is based on typically varies between £50 - £125. This provides the option for a very affordable bespoke kitchen. As the standard range is so extensive special units are either not needed or there may be one or two on a typical kitchen.
The attached drawing is an example of a standard larder unit (L40/21) that is modified to suit the installation of a 5 drawer Blum Space Tower.
The modifications in this case to a standard larder unit are:
- Move the fixed shelf to a higher position to accomodate larder inserts.
- Do not drill standard hinge holes as different positions are used for a Blum Space Tower.
- Do not drill standard shelf holes as they are not required.
- Change the standard Blum hinges to zero protusion hinges.
This service can be used for a variety of options including customised towers to suit unusual appliance configurations.
