When installing cabinets, you’re basically taking a series of wooden boxes and putting them together to create a series of nice storage areas. And the most important things to remember is that you want to make all of the cabinets flush (even with one another) and well-installed.

The following, then, are the tips and tricks we suggest when installing your own cabinetry.

  • Make sure you put down the floor before you put in the cabinets, and if possible, take the room down to the studs. It’s much easier to install cabinetry in a room that’s empty than in a room that’s full. Also, make sure you protect the floor before you install the cabinetry, as it tends to get damaged during installation.
  • Before installing the cabinets, make sure the walls are straight, as well. This is easy to assess – use a 4 foot level and a 2-by-4.
  • Install the electrical lines before you install the cabinetry.
  • When you first install the cabinetry, put your first mark about 48 inches off the floor.
  • Before you install the upper cabinetry, join them together. This will prevent the cabinets from not being even with one another.
  • Use a stud finder to find all of the studs for your cabinetry.
  • Be sure to install a ledger board, on all of the other studs, before you install the cabinetry.
Please make a note: installing cabinetry is not an easy task. If you aren’t sure about something, you definitely need to bring in a professional for additional work. In fact, it’s even better if you just get a professional to install the cabinetry for you in the first place.
