    Hi looking for some help.
    Putting in a new kitchen at one side we are putting in a floor to ceiling larder and fridge/freezer it is in a recess that will house just these the howdens rep suggested we pull the wall out to 600mm counter depth. However we changed the f/f to an american one and is deeper. I can adjust the depth of opening no issue but is there a recommended size so i can get the doors open without fouling.

    Re-writing this with punctuation will help, so we can read and understand the problem better...
    So will some pictures or sketches.

    Regards,

    Sorry about punctuation i am not the best at that. Even harder when its the first time on forum using a phone rather than laptop. The wall i am altering is the one on the right of fridge freezer its current length is 540mm. Any help would be appreciated

    As a general rule with American style F/F's, you need about 690mm from the back wall so as to allow both doors to open properly.

    Spot on thanks for that. Would it protrude to much at standard depth of 600 ?

    Yes it would, about 90mm. It has to because all these types of F/F's doors have to open outside of there own width. If they didn't you wouldn't be able to pull a freezer draw or any other draw out.
