Walk-in larder plinth requirements


A question that we were recently asked was “With your walk-in larder unit, do I need two sets of plinth? One for the doors and one for the unit itself, as the main plinth seems to attach to the door and not the unit?”

Walk in larder no plinth

Well, that is a good question and to keep things as neat as possible and to hide the legs of the unit, the following plinth would be required.

  • 2000mm of plinth in unit material to give you enough to cut and cover the feet of the walk-in larder unit.
  • 1000mm of plinth in door material to cover the bottom of the doors. This plinth has to be cut into 2 pieces, 1 piece to go at the bottom of each door.

Don’t forget to add the additional plinth requirement into your overall kitchen plan and please remember that plinth comes in door material and unit material.

How does the plinth attach to the walk-in larder doors?

The walk-in larder unit comes with 2 z-shaped brackets as shown below. These are used to attach the plinth to the doors and to allow the plinth to line up underneath the larder doors, like the plinth in the rest of the kitchen. It may look a little strange from the picture but this is the best way to do it.

    Would it not be possible to just add plinth to the bottom of the doors? I realise the plinth wouldn’t be set back like the rest of the units, but I’m not sure about the z brackets!

    Secondly, we only have space for the 1000 corner unit. Would it be possible to cut a small section of the base away so that you can still step into it?

      Hi, the plinth would not look right if just added to the bottom of the doors without the z brackets. We don’t recommend cutting the base either, as you would have exposed edges which you would then have to re-edge and paint.

    Where can one find z brackets same as those pictured above? Not sure how to search for them in shops. I would like to use some for some other custom furniture I’m making, not related to my diy kitchen.

    The unit only comes with 2 z brackets. The method in your picture above would require 4.

    Can you please send me 2 more to do as you have said?
