48 inch wide over fridge cabinet?

I want to build in a 48 inch wide Leibherr refrigerator, but the widest over fridge cabinet is 36 inches...

Has anyone gotten around this somehow?

Thanks in advance,

Jason

Re: 48 inch wide over fridge cabinet?

Hi Jason - welcome to IKEAFans.

As long as IKEA makes the door, you can combine sides, top and bottom and back to get just about any size frame to fit them.

Ikea markets 24" wide doors that are 15" tall and 18" tall. 12" doors in the two taller heights. From member ctaylor6:
The cabinet doors come in 4 different heights. Those heights are, in turn, available in varying widths as follows:
door Ht 30 1/2: widths 12", 15", 18", 21"
door Ht 23 7/8: widths 12", 15", 18", 21"
door Ht 17 1/2: widths 15", 18", 24"
door Ht 14 7/8: widths 15", 18", 24"
You'd make a pair of 24" wide frames: For each of the cabinets: For the sides and back (which you'd cut down with a utility knife), you'd use the frame from a wider over-fridge cabinet. For the top and bottom, you'd use a pair of 24" wide base cabinets. Using the parts you need, you just build it the regular way. Some spare parts - but a modest cost for custom.

Re: 48 inch wide over fridge cabinet?

I once had to deal with this scenario with a jumbo fridge/freezer combo... pic attached. Can't remember the dimensions of the cabinets I used here, though (with the now-discontinued Liljestad doors). I suspect two WRD3024s joined together.

Is there a 12 inch tall solution to this problem?

If I have an 84 inch fridge, is there a way to hack a 12 inch tall cabinet?

There's a Viking on crazy sale floor model, but I think it might be too tall.

Thanks again,

Jason

Re: 48 inch wide over fridge cabinet?

Assuming 84" tall? (not wide.) How wide?

Some mods from Stacy Lu and Company that will convince you anything is possible. Cut down cabinets, re-drill holes, use drawer fronts as doors, use cover panels to build your own shelves - if you can dream it you can do it!
