I will be remodeling my kitchen later this year. Right now, there was a sale on the refrigerator I wanted so I ordered it. I had to remove the cabinet above where the refrigerator will go due to the new height.
The cabinet directly next to the refrigerator cabinet was attached to it via two small nails. All cabinets are screwed through the drywall into cinder block.
There is no way that those two little nails are the make or break for the load the adjacent cabinet is under, right? The picture shows the nails. My understanding of joining the cabinets, while I'm sure it may distribute some load, is to square things up.
