ADD WALL CABINETS
- Adding a set of wall cabinets on top of a base cabinet
To add a set of wall cabinets, repeat the same actions as for the base cabinets, selecting the correct type of cabinet.
-- Quick kitchen by stretching
--- High set
The cabinets are available in different heights: 26, 39, 77 and 103 cm.
Once you have selected the type of cabinet, you can choose to integrate a hood or a microwave.
Note : not all cabinet can accommodate all equipment depending of the cabinet height.
Place your set of cabinets in your plan, then refine its position and length using the stretching handles. This can be done in 2D or 3D.
Note : Automatic alignment
We automatically align the set of wall cabinets with the set of base cabinets.
- the hood is placed above the hob
- the end of the cabinets overlap
- the composition is harmonized
For more flexibility in the composition of your wall cabinets, you can deactivate this option of aligning the wall cabinets with the base cabinets. In 3D, click on the "deactivate link" icon.
Note: automatic finishing
Filers and sides are automatically placed according to the position of your wall cabinets: next to a wall or a high cabinet. Check all the cabinet/high cabinet and wall cabinet/wall junctions by repositioning the composition or by playing with the stretching handles.
Side finishes can be adjusted manually. To do this, click on the "properties" icon in the contextual menu of the high cabinet set, then go to the "side finishing" tab.
- Adding a single wall cabinet
To add a single wall cabinet, you can use the cabinet-by-cabinet method.
However, we advise you to go through the stretching process. Place a set of wall units and reduce it to the desired size.
Once in kitchen room mode, the cabinet display of the measurements will be better. It can be stretched if necessary.
Example: single high cabinet between two high cabinets:
To integrate a free-standing refrigerator, it is common to create a composition of high cabinet / free space + wall cabinet / high cabinet.
1st solution :
We advise you to model a set of 3 high cabinets (or more), and to remove the central high cabinet leaving a free space: this will be the right width of 60cm, to accommodate a refrigerator and a wall cabinet.
2nd solution :
If the space between these two columns does not correspond to that of a column, you can also stretch a linear of 2 columns and then move one of the columns to place it at the distance of your choice.
To do so, click on the column and a green outline will appear. You can remove it from the cabinet set and move it.
It is then possible to determine the exact distance between these two cabinets. Click on the pencil in the context menu and open the "Position" tab.
By selecting the position of the box in relation to an object, you can then specify the distance to the other column.
This method allows you to display the dimensions in frontal view but also in 2D, unlike the cabinet-by-cabinet method.
