“Will my plates fit your wooden plate racks in solid oak kitchens?” Question of the Week 15.11.15
“Will my plates fit your wooden plate racks in solid oak kitchens?”
Today’s ‘Question of the Week’ was sent to us by Joanna in Solihull, who is trying to decide whether to include a set of our solid oak plate racks in her new kitchen.
“I’m currently planning how to lay out the wall cabinets in my new kitchen and like the look of your solid oak plate racks, though I am not sure if they will fit my favourite set of plates which are quite deep. Do you have any more information about them?”
Thank you for taking the time to send your query in regarding our wood kitchen plate racks. They are a fantastic accessory for solid oak kitchens, creating a handy plate storage solution with a unique aesthetic that suits traditional kitchen themes.
Each plate rack comes as a 1200mm x 342mm section, which is intended to hold 24 plates and is designed to fit into any of our oak kitchen wall cabinets. It can be easily trimmed down to fit any width of cabinet, and is easily installed by fixing in place with a number of 15mm screws and small ‘L’ brackets.
A section of plate racking will be required at both the front and rear of your wall cabinets to hold the plates in place, and the spacing between the two racks will dictate the minimum diameter plate that can be stored in the rack – we recommend positioning them 200mm apart.
Each gap in the plate rack measures 38mm, which will comfortably fit most standard depth plates, but we do suggest measuring yours first before placing an order.
If you are happy that your plates will fit into the rack, then you just need to decide which finish would suit your kitchen design. Our oak plate racks are available in a number of finishes: sanded so that you may paint or treat them in the style of your choosing; lacquered to both protect and show off the solid oak timber; or painted in any Farrow & Ball colour of your choice.
Further details regarding installation can be found in our ‘Installing Oak Plate Racks’ information guide.
