Kitchen base units are an essential part of any cooking area, providing the foundation for building up your kitchen storage and preparation space. Ground-level storage is often easier to access, making it the best place to store larger and heavier items of cookware. Highline units give you even more space to work with, since there’s no pull-out drawer at the top.

What is a highline kitchen unit?

Highline kitchen units provide a ‘high line’ because the door reaches from the top to the bottom. For highline base units, this means that the top of the door sits just under the worktop, where the height might usually be reduced by a cutlery drawer.

Highline kitchen wall units are used more commonly than highline base units since it’s impractical to have drawers in the upper cabinets as they would be extremely hard to reach. However, highline base units are a popular choice for contemporary kitchens because they offer more room to store things that would be tricky to lift down from higher storage areas, such as bulky pots and pans.

These kitchen units come in a variety of sizes, from 150mm wide for single highline base units, up 1200mm wide for double highline base units. We understand that no two kitchens are the same in terms of size and layout, so our highline units have the option of adjustable legs for heights up to 720mm. Custom width highline base units are also available for a small surcharge.

Why order highline base units from Kitchen Warehouse?

Our selection of highline base carcasses spans 11 standard sizes and colour options, allowing you to design your kitchen exactly how you want it. The adjustable legs and feet also enable you to set the highline base cabinets at a custom height to fit under your worktops perfectly. In addition to this, our highline wall units  come with adjustable wall hanging brackets to help you position them properly.

What are highline base units made from?

At Kitchen Warehouse, we test our products to ensure that we only provide the highest quality to our customers. You can choose to have your highline base units manufactured to match any of our kitchen ranges, including gloss acrylic and solid wood. The quality of all our kitchen units will give you the peace of mind that your highline cabinets will withstand the wear and tear of daily life for many years to come.

Should you decide to opt for a solid wood kitchen, you can rest assured that we use only Grade A+ solid oak to produce our kitchen doors.

Not only are all our highline kitchen cabinets extremely resilient, but they also benefit from Hettich soft-closing hinge mechanisms. This means that they open and close smoothly for easy use. The soft close mechanism will ensure that the cupboard doors won’t slam when closed, giving them a longer lifespan. There’s also a 42mm void at the back that allows you to install these highline carcasses even if there are obstructions on the wall, such as pipes.

Narrow highline base units

If your space is limited, you may require narrower highline base units. Fortunately, since our highline kitchen units are so versatile, they can be used in many different ways. We can manufacture them to the exact width you need, making the best use of the space available.

Alternatively, if depth is an issue due to obstructions in your kitchen, we can even produce highline units that are shallower than standard.

Highline Base Unit FAQs

Can you provide custom width base units?

Our highline kitchen units are available in 11 standard widths, ranging from 150mm to 1200mm. If none of the sizes available are suitable for your kitchen, we may be able to accommodate custom base unit sizes for a surcharge.

This depends on the specific product, as not all kitchen base units may be customisable in this way. For some ranges, such as the Luxury Shaker or Acrylic kitchens, we can produce carcasses and doors to your exact measurements.

Can you provide custom depth base units?

Similarly to the width, if the depth of the unit and/or the service void are incompatible with your kitchen design, we may be able to help. After all, we wouldn’t want you to miss out on the product you want just because the standard sizes don’t match.

If you’re interested in base units with a custom depth, please give us a call on 01765 640 000 to discuss your specifications and request pricing. Alternatively, send your enquiry via email to and we’ll get back to you.

What’s the difference between highline and drawerline units?

As the name implies, a drawerline kitchen unit features a drawer at the top line. This creates a smaller cupboard space below, with a smaller door. These are often seen in more traditional designs, such as Shaker-style kitchens and solid wood kitchens.

Highline kitchen units are bigger because they forego the top drawer, providing more cabinet space. They’re the better choice for more modern kitchens with a minimalist slab door design, such as handleless high gloss or handleless matt kitchens.
