Procedures to Assemble Kitchen Cabinets: Tips from Kitchen Experts of Chatsworth

by Elias Deukmajian | Kitchen Remodel

Making the decision to change the cabinets in your kitchen is a large one. You may be tired of the old ones and are ready for something new. Perhaps the old ones are breaking down. You could also be working for a client who wants to have kitchen cabinets installed. Whether you are installing new kitchen cabinets for yourself in our own personal home or installing them in the homes of clients, there are procedures and tips that you should keep in mind as you are going about this process.

Ordering the Kitchen Cabinets and Tools

When you first set out to assemble kitchen cabinets, the most important thing to consider are the cabinets themselves. Depending on the theme of your kitchen, you should spend some time looking at all your style options when it comes to cabinets. There are many out there to choose from, so take your time when you are buying them. You want to enjoy looking at your kitchen cabinets every day, so there is no need to rush this decision.

After you have ordered the cabinets that you want to hang, check them all when they come in. Make sure that the company you ordered from sent you the right ones and that all parts are included. You want the correct product that you ordered for your home or for your client’s home, if you are doing someone else’s kitchen. Also, inspect the cabinets to ensure that there are no damages.

Next, you will need the proper tools. There are specific tools that are required when installing kitchen cabinets. The first thing you will need is an accurate 4-foot level. You will use this to ensure that you are installing the cabinets evenly. The second tool you will need is a powerful screw gun to secure the cabinets to the walls. The third tool you will need are clamps so you can make the cabinets fit together properly. Other tools to consider are a belt sander or a block plane just in case you need to fix any corners.

Installing the Top and Bottom Cabinets

After you have made sure that all the necessary pieces have been ordered and arrive as expected, you will want to get ready for installation. It is important to note that you should always start with the top kitchen cabinets. This will ensure that you have an easier time installing them because the bottom cabinets are not in the way, where they can make an awkward angle for top cabinet installation.

Once the top cabinets have been installed, then you can move on to the bottom cabinets. With each cabinet that you secure into place, you will want to make sure that they are level with one another and also the wall. You don’t want to get halfway done and realize that they were all installed at a slant.

Another tip to keep in mind as you are installing the cabinets is that they should be done with the doors and drawers off. This will make it easier for you in the long run. It will also prevent any damage from occurring during the installation process. Having the doors and drawers removed as you are installing will allow for a quicker installation process. You also will not have to worry about spending extra money because there will not be any damages that need fixing or replacing.
