How do I measure my cabinet for a in-cupboard bin?

When you’re choosing an in-cupboard bin, you’ll first need to establish three key Internal cabinet measurements that’ll indicate which bin you can fit. These are:

  • Internal Width - Interior width of the cabinet carcass, usually 32-38mm less than the door width, but please note this can vary.
  • Internal Height - Consider the max. available height of your cabinet, including any obscurations, eg. a drawer above, pipes.
  • Internal Depth - Consider the max. available depth from the back of the cabinet panel or wall, to the back of the cabinet door. This is important because depth is the dimension which varies most across cabinets and also bin models.

We stock an extensive range of products to fit numerous cabinet sizes, so provided your own measurements are accurate, you should have no problem finding a bin to fit your cupboard and needs.

Can I convert a pull-out cabinet to a hinged door?

It is often possible to remove a door from its hinges so that it becomes a panel to apply to the front of a bin unit for pull-out doors, or vice versa if you are looking to install a bin for hinged doors. If you have an existing side handle, you can alter the handle position, or create a routing or top groove for pulling out. This will help over many years as pull-out bins are best pulled out from the centre to balance the pressure on each runner.

You can ask your kitchen fitter to see if this will work for your cabinet, or if you are an avid DIY'er, you can do so yourself! Make sure to double check your cabinet dimensions to find the right product for your cabinet.

Can I fit a bin for a hinged door cabinet into a wider space?

You certainly can! Many bin models for hinged door cabinets simply fix to the cabinet floor, so they can be positioned either in the centre or to one side of a wider cabinet. For example the largest capacity bins for all hinged door cabinets are found under the heading of 400mm doors, so these are good for 450, 500, 600 and wider cabinets and can sometimes be fitted to the side or in front of under-sink pipework. Check that you have the depth and height needed for each bin model. 

It can be possible to fit two bins for a 300mm cabinet into a 600mm unit, side by side. This method could offer up to 80 litres of capacity by fitting two 40L single bins, or perhaps one single and one double compartment bin, to create a 3 compartment recycling set up.

How do the bin units fit round the hinges inside the cabinet?

The product widths given for the bins which fix to the base of hinged door cabinets are measured at the maximum point, which is across the back of the lid. The height of these bins is designed to fit below the top hinge in most installations, and, at the bottom front of the bin, the combination of tapered bin containers and the open nature of the steel frame means that the units are designed to fit away from the bottom hinge in most common hinge sizes and designs.
