The kitchen sink we picked out for our flip house was the Pervoir Luxury Undermount sink from American Standard and it required a 27in base cabinet. Since we had a small kitchen I went with the minimum, so 27in it was. While this was a snug fit for our sink, this carcass would be really easy to expand to fit another size sink. It has a single false drawer front and the standard two doors below it which are all full overlay. Full overlay is sometimes referred to as an 1/8″ reveal because there is only 1/8″ gap, or reveal, between each door or adjacent surface.
The cabinet is a frameless, or European style, cabinet which basically means that there is no face frame. This allows you to better utilize the space in the carcass. The carcass is made of 3/4″ pre-finished maple plywood from Purebond and while I decided to make all my own carcasses for the flip house kitchen, the doors were purchased from Rockler Woodworking. The doors and face of the cabinets were painted Night Blooming Jasmine from Behr. And for those of you wondering, the faucet is the Edgewater Semi-Professional Kitchen Faucet from American Standard as well.
