Hi all,

Thanks for any advice in advance!

I am working on replacing my old base cabinets with some newer ikea ones. The new corner cabinet is about 2" longer on one of the walls, and consequently will slightly in front of one of the water supply lines. They currently come out from the back wall.

the two options are either: A) Notch out a few inches of the base cabinet sidewalls to accommodate the shutoff valve or B) cut the supply lines and re-pipe and have them come through the subfloor and the bottom of the new cabinet.

For B, the subfloor is exposed under the current cabinet and there is access from below - so it's not a difficult DIY job, just requires more materials to buy.

Is one way better or preferred for piping these days?

I personally prefer the water to come from the wall. It's cleaner and more convenient for storage and keeping things clean in the cabinet.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Agree that it usually looks better/cleaner! If I had brought it from the floor I was planning to attach it to blocking on the side of the cabinet at least to keep it away from the middle and also give it some stabilization.

Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
