Kitchen Cabinets

Measure the dimensions of your kitchen and carefully plan the layout of your new kitchen cabinets.

Take note of the locations of electrical outlets, plumbing, and any obstacles that may affect the installation.

Kitchen floors, especially in older homes, are frequently not perfectly level and flat.

It's essential to assume that your floor has a high point and locate it. Shimming a cabinet to achieve level and plumb is much simpler than cutting the bottom to ensure a square and flush fit.

Locate and mark studs Use a stud finder to locate and mark the position of wall studs.

Mounting cabinets directly onto studs ensures stability and durability. Mark the stud locations on the wall using a pencil.

In addition to having the appropriate tools for cabinet installation, it is crucial to carefully choose the right hardware based on your wall type.

Add markings for any appliances and fixtures you’ll install. If you’re planning to add appliances such as refrigerators or any fixtures, measure them first.

Start with the upper cabinets. Begin by attaching a ledger board to the wall at the desired height for the cabinets. This temporary support will hold the cabinets in place during installation.

Once the upper cabinets are securely in place, move on to the base cabinets. Start in a corner and work your way along the wall.

Use a DOVOH 3 Plane Laser Level H3-360G to ensure that the base cabinets are level and shim as needed.

Now it’s time to install the kitchen cabinet doors. Screw the cabinet doors into place.

For traditional hinges, drive small screws through the hinges into doors. If your cabinet doors snap into place, install them into the proper slots.
