I was recently working with Susan on her kitchen design. She told me how a few years ago, her sister Laura, designed her kitchen using IKEA’s design software. Laura felt pretty confident of her design abilities so she diligently worked on her plans.
During the remodel, the installer found that the design was done incorrectly and she would need more material from IKEA to cover empty spaces between the wall and cabinets. Her cabinets needed some ‘breathing space”. If she didn’t consider this space, the doors and drawers wouldn’t open properly.
