A question that we were recently asked was “What is a 1250mm high base unit?” Read on to find out more.

Well, a 1250mm high base unit, more commonly known as a mid height unit can be used in place of tall units or to create something a little different in your kitchen design where a standard base unit, does not quite fit in with your plans.

Uses for a 1250mm high base unit

1250mm high base units are very useful for appliances like single under counter ovens and fridge/freezers, as they allow you to raise the appliances higher than you could in a standard base unit, for easier access.

As the units are only 1250mm high, you can also put some worktop on the top of them and use that area as some additional storage or use it to dress the kitchen with pictures or objects from your travels.
