Installing Kitchen Cabinets The First Time

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 0

There aren't many people who get the chance to choose their kitchen cabinets and install them. Usually they are already installed for us. A long time ago people had to pay carpenters to do the job. Nowadays we can install them ourselves without a problem. It will take a lot of planning and time. You will have to pick out the design and style you want first. You should also know how to place them the right way in their proper places. There are also safety precautions you need to take to stay on the safe side.

Some kitchens only need the upper cabinets to be installed. If you need new upper and lower cabinets it's best you install the upper ones first. One of the basic steps is locating the studs. They should be about sixteen inches apart from each other. You should also remove all the cabinet doors to make things easier. You can put the doors back on once the cabinets are properly installed. It's also much more convenient if you start with the corner cabinets.

When you are installing your kitchen cabinets you need to be extra careful. Many accidents can happen if you don't. Start by turning off the water valves and electrical breakers. Also make sure you chose the right size cabinets. Make sure all the screws are nicely tightened. The upper cabinets are more dangerous to install than the lower ones. Once you are finished with them take a step back and see if they look secure. It shouldn't be too difficult.

Some people struggle with placing their kitchen cabinets in the right place. It is difficult to decide whether they should be kept at a distance from the ceiling or not. It all depends on the height of your ceiling and the size of your cabinets. There might not be enough space. It is best to place them as close to the ceiling as possible. You should also make sure that they are level. It is not like the floor. You might have them installed tilted to one side. You shouldn't make any mistakes if you measured everything at first.

Installing kitchen cabinets and cupboards are not as hard as many people may think. It should be done without a problem. Selecting the right colors, designs and sizes is very important. They should never be changed so it is important you have something that suits your taste. Also make sure you have taken all the safety precautions to avoid accidents and mistakes.
