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.

      Hi, the unit is 1250mm high. The legs at the default setting are 150mm high. Put the 2 together and the top of the mid height unit from the floor would be 1400mm.

      Hi Pauline, mid size units will only hold 1 appliance. Either the microwave or a single oven. The units that we have available are shown here.

    Can you tell me what the internal size is on the mid height double oven housing unit please, (just the aperture for the oven, not the cupboard space below).

    • Diy Kitchens says:

      Hi Dave, the internal opening for the built in double oven is approximately 940mm (h) x 564mm (w). Please note that this comes with a filler panel 115x597mm (hxw) that is cut to size onsite, to fit above the built-in double oven.

        Hi just wanted to check the 940mm is the max height of the opening [or is it 940mm + 115mm for the filler panel). My ovens need an opening of 1050mm, unfortunately the taller oven units don’t work because we have reduced ceiling height.

      • Diy Kitchens says:

        Hi Katy, 940mm is the max height. What ever gap is left above the oven the filler panel is cut down to fill the gap.
