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.
I once had to deal with this scenario with a jumbo fridge/freezer combo...
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.
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!
