    Hi, If the above unit is used how is the work top eg wood made up using the normal work tops listed. i.e the unit would not be covered at the font or due to the cupboard depth the work top will cover the complete top?

    Thanks Graham

      Hi, your kitchen fitter would need to cut a piece out of a deeper worktop, to reach the extra distance required. The worktops on the 2 other kitchen runs would then be connected to the piece in the middle.
