How To Install Kitchen Cabinets?
Start by Marking the Wall.
A good cabinet installation starts with a good design layout.
Draw a level line indicating the top of the base kitchen cabinets.
Measure up 19 inches of this line and draw an extra line for the bottom of the top kitchen cabinets.
Mark the place of the wall cabinets and appliances on the wall.
Sketch a vertical line to line up the end of the first cabinet to be placed.
Place the first cabinet by the vertical line and shim the base until the top cabinet is even with the horizontal line and also level from front to back. Drive a screw through the back of the cabinet into the wall stud to secure it.
First Begin Installing The Upper Cabinets
It's more comfortable to attach the upper cabinets when you're not suspended over the base cabinets. To start installing the top cabinets, lean the top cabinets on a ledger plank it will guarantee an accurate, straight alignment and eliminate the difficulty of keeping the cabinets in place while attaching them to the wall. Once your top cabinets are placed and secured, move on to the installation of the bottom kitchen cabinets.
Clamp, Drill, and Connect
When joining two kitchen cabinets to each other, line up the front and attach them by screwing them together. Both cabinets should be attached to the wall at this time, however, you may have to free one cabinet to get the front to line up correctly.
Attach the Hardware Temporarily
In case you're not sure of where to install the knobs and handles, attach a piece of Reusable adhesive to the hardware and try out various spots. Mark the one you like with a pencil and install the rest of the hardware equally. Reusable adhesive is available at your local hardware stores.
