Determining cabinet sizes and door swing
I have a couple questions about making cabinets.
I have about 72” of hanging cabinets to build.
1. how do I determine the best way to break down the space? Should I build 4 cabinets? Or should I build two 36” wide cabinets? Is it better to build one 36” centered one with an 18” on either side? I also expect that A 36” will get a divider down the middle. Is this true?
2. How do I determine which side should the doors be hinged on? Should the all be right or left hinged? Should the be hinged in pairs of left and right? Should they all be hinged so that , from the center, all left of center doors are left hinged and all right of center are right hinged?
3. Should cabinets alway be taller than wide? I currently believe that my cabinets will only be 18” – 24” tall. They will be hanging over my car door and I want them high enough so that I do not hit my head. Is it wrong to build 18” x 18” cabinets? Do they need to follow the Golden ratio?
