How To Install Kitchen Cabinets
Installing kitchen cabinets — Andy Bell of Handyman Matters shows us how to install base and upper kitchen cabinets.
Using standard 30inch base cabinets, he first makes sure the floor is level, and then puts the base cabinets in place.
Next he connects the base frames so they look clean and professional, pre-drilling the holes so that the brittle wood doesn’t crack.
He makes sure the cabinet faces are flush, countersinks the screws so that they don’t stick out, and connects the base cabinets together.
The next step is to find the framing of the house so he can screw the cabinets securely to the wall. Taking doors off before setting the cabinets makes the job a lot easier.
Upper cabinets are installed similarly, but require two people to lift the cabinets and hold them in place.
