Hi, I've got a kitchen supplied by Homebase and can see no way of discretely making a mechanical connection between a unit and a curved element so I figure double sided tape is probably best.

I need to know whether others use double sided tape in situations like this and if so, exactly which one is most appropriate and comes highly recommended please. The one problem I have encountered with this solution is that I need as small-a-gap as possible between the two pieces to avoid unsightly vertical lines when I need to achieve an almost seamless finish and this tape tends to be at least 1mm thick.

Thanks.

Thank you for your reply. I am trying to connect an end panel with a solid curved element which you cut to size vertically. Unfortunately there aren't any images online to show you what I mean.

If you can't screw them together, (why not?) what about mirror plates? (make a template first).

Definite NO to double sided tape, keep that for Blue Peter.

Modesty blocks from the back before you fit the worktops?

A picture of what you have might help?
