I am a planning on installing standard cabinets in a galley type kitchen.
I want to the cabinets to be about 2-3 inches away from the wall. What are the concerns with doing this, and is there anything I should take special consideration of when doing it?
My reasons for doing this:
I only have about 6 ft long of countertop space, so if I push the base cabinets away from the wall I can gain a couple inches.
The old cabinets were installed before a new ceiling was put in; I had to add drywall to finish the ceiling and did an ok job at hiding the joint. The old ceiling has a texture but the new ceiling doesn't, so if I push the cabinets off the wall their tops will end at the older ceiling, hiding the joint and untextured ceiling.
I am going to install the cabinets between these two walls. Therefore, the sides of the cabinets will never or hardly be seen.
If you look at the ceiling in the picture, there is a purple drywall board about 13 inches from the wall.
I want the wall cabinets to sit flush against the old ceiling.
So I would like both the base and wall cabinets to be 2-3 inches from the back wall.
