Is it possible to have 2 corner cabinets one on each end of the wall in a complete run? Do people normally use filler between two cabinets? Say you started at on corner with a corner cabinet and installed toward the middle then did the same on the opposite corner until the cabinets met but you were an inch shy would you then install an inch filler strip between the gap? Or would a blind have to be used on the one end in this situation? I attached a layout to help understand what I am saying, thanks and btw they are not custom cabinets
I do all commercial work so zero to none blind corners, all of ours are 3" beyond cabinet depth to clear handles, diswashers Etc.
This is for Humor only, One of our guys has taken on a bad repair done by a decent trim carpenter who was kinda lost when it came to kitchens, this is two issues of dozens wrong and the client was not happy. problems included 1" toe kicks, doors and drawers right up to a wall flush that will not open and baseboard was taller than the lowest drawer, the photos show some of the obvious
Basically this is why one should always hire a dedicated cabinetmaker
If you are an inch shy find some center and use a .5 filler to make balance
You have no choice but to use fillers, which is fine
I would find center and install with no filler if not needed for drawers or doors to operate. The 1" difference could be packed off the walls adjacent to the corners and the ends of the U would have fillers slightly larger on the end of the dishwasher and other side.
Isn't it the uppers that pose the problem not the lowers?

I just fixed a vanity that had 8-10 nails in each drawer front....
Posts like these give me hope for the future. I will never run out of work with people like this out there.
