Installing Kitchen Cabinets

Kitchen Cabinet Installation may not be as difficult as you think. You can get useful advice from many sources: from a friend or family member who did it, so a manual (which is understandable), or a course at a community college or business school.

Although it may be fairly easy, you can not do it by yourself. You need someone to help you raise your wall cabinets. Or need help to move the base cabinets in place.

The thickness of the timber

Wood cabinets should be at least half an inch thick. Do not use thin wood or particle board. Not perform very well, and in the end will be a waste of your money and took the time to hang them.

No nails

Do not use nails to hang your cabinets. Cabinets, which are loaded with heavy dishes, suspended by the nails, are a disaster waiting to happen. The bet is always advisable to use screws.

Choice of wood

There are many things to consider when deciding what type of wood to use in your project. Some are solid wood, but quite heavy. Others are lighter and cheaper, but it will not last as long as the cabinets made of heavy wood. You should consider all types of walnut, pine, walnut, cherry, mahogany – and decide what is best for your project.

Wall studs

Wall studs are usually 16 inches apart. However, this may be different, depending on local building codes and expenditure. The best thing to do is go out and get a metal detector. You can find one at any hardware store or hardware section of any store.


If you want to mount all the wall cabinets first, avoiding the hassle of having to navigate the newly installed base cabinets.

Wall cabinets may seem a bit difficult and daunting, but if you do a little research first, ask people who have experience, read a book or take a course of improvement, it is possible that the installation of the cabinets is very Easy!
