    Probably would be best to cut out a section of the middle and then match up the bottom and top, especially if the cabinet doors have any kind of decorative edge. If you just cut off the bottom, you will lose the detail of the cabinet and then you would have to realign hinges, etc. Some wood filler and sanding should help with making everything look seamless.

    I had the same problem we replaced the cabinet with the island cabinet

    I also had this problem, I was lucky as I just removed the bottom of the cabinet and everything fit perfect. Doors are still above the fridge but cant use the cupboard. I may put a shelf higher up but don't really need the space.
