How to Install New Cabinets In Your Kitchen

Kitchen cabinetry installation is a significant undertaking. However, you can install new cabinets with clear instructions, enough time, and common tools. It is preferable to put in top cabinets before base cabinets.

At the 54-inch line, start by screwing a straight 1-inch by 4-inch ledger to the wall. A board known as a ledger serves as a support for the cabinets while you work. To verify that your cabinets are installed correctly, use a level. If you don't have a corner unit, start with the hanging cabinet on the far left. At the top, middle, and bottom rails of the cabinets, drill holes. The distance between the top and bottom holes and the cabinet edge should be around 3/4 inch. Apply this procedure to every unit. Drive the mounting screws into the wall after positioning the cabinet. Don't tighten the screws too much. Just enough torque should be used to hold the cabinet in place. You might have a space between the hanging cabinet and the wall when you reach the end of the row. To close the gap, use cabinet fill strips. Cut your filler strip to the appropriate length after measuring the top and bottom gaps. After connecting each cabinet, tighten the rear screws and take the clamps off. Take down the ledger board, then repair any wall damage.
