Hi there,

First of all, congrats on such an amazing project!, we are in the process of preparing/designing our kitchen and it is projects like yours and your awesome willingness to help others like us that make this project easier and fun.

We have just noticed your fridge at the end of your counter, it seems like it has a built-in look. We are looking at ways to get one (24in width) so far we can see that we can fit it inside a tall akurum High cabinet frame (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/84381110/#/94381510) and cut the front doors to size from abstrackt high gloss white (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/70115875/?query=70115875#/40115867) we are concerned about how to get the doors cut to size and whether the finish of the cut is going to look good. Can we ask you how you went around this? Also what is your fridge side panel material? also abstrackt high gloss white?

Thanks once again for sharing your project.

Paco

Greeting Paco - Thanks for your interest in our work and for the kinds words. I value your comments.

I've attached a graphic with notes that hopefully answers all your questions. Please note that the fridge shown here is a 36" wide model. IKEA has a panel available in 36" width so there was no need to cut on at least 3 sides. Fridge side panel is also the same material as the cabinetry (high-gloss white). Have a look at the graphic below...

Best of luck and i wish you every success in your project.

Is the tall cabinet to the right of the refrigerator a standard IKEA size?
