The cornerstone of your kitchen

If you need to install a kitchen island, it's crucial that you have the foundation 100% in order. The plinth is the kitchen's "cornerstone" on which your base cabinets and table top rest. If the plinth is unstable or not level, your kitchen won't be straight. Beyond it being annoying, it's easy to imagine what will happen if you set an egg on a worktop that's not level…not a particularly cool scenario!
