How To Install New Custom Cabinets For The Kitchen

May 12th, 2011

If you are considering to upgrade your cabinets for the kitchen but don’t want to hire someone to fix them up for you, you can always do the job yourself. With the right tools and some skills, installing new cabinets for the kitchen can be relatively easy this days. Make it even more fun and easy by inviting a friend or two to help you out. Just remember to be careful and highly organized, installing your new kitchen cabinets should be pretty simple in the end.

Take a look at your existing cabinets. Does it need a complete re-haul or is it just in need of a simple refinishing. If all you need to do is to spruce up the look of your existing kitchen cabinets, then you don’t have to spend a lot of time and money. When you refinish, all you will need to do is sand off the existing layer or paint and cover it with a new one of your choice, pretty simple! You may need to just reface your cabinets. When it is beyond repair, then all you can do is to replace the door of your cabinets.

Measure out your space! Don’t even think about replacing your kitchen cabinets before you have measured out exactly how much space you have to play with. Imagine buying in a load of nice expensive looking cabinets that don’t even fit into your kitchen! Make sure that you thoroughly measure the upper and lower cabinets and every appliance that surrounds them. If you fail to do this, then your cabinets may collide with other things in the kitchen, such as your oven! And I think it is pretty safe to say that nobody is going to want that in your family, are they?

It’s now time to remove all your old cabinets. At the back of each cabinet you will find screws or nails holding them in place. Before unscrewing your cabinets from the walls, always remember to remove the doors and shelves to prevent accidents and further damage. Make sure of course that there is nothing inside the cabinets whilst you are taking them down or you could find yourself causing a nasty little accident. As you unscrew the cabinets make sure that you support the bottom of them or you will obviously find them crashing to the floor or again causing an accident. By removing all nails from the walls, then you have successfully taken down your cabinets!

Install the upper cabinets first if you can. The process should be relatively simple if you have measured out your workspace correctly. When you install your new kitchen cabinets, make sure they are level using the appropriate tools! If your cabinets look wonky and unpleasant to the eyes, it will decrease the real value of your kitchen and also make it inconvenient to use. Move on then to the lower kitchen cabinets, which can also be simply screwed into place where your previous cabinets where.

If you are looking to get some new kitchen cabinets installed, then it is a great idea to have them professionally custom made. The reason I say this is because with a lot of kitchen cabinets out there, you won’t be getting much quality for your money. If you decide to get a professional cabinet maker to make them for you, you will not only get a cabinet of the highest quality, buy you will also find that the value of your house will increase because of the uniqueness of custom cabinets. Personally, when it comes to the long lasting quality that is needed to make my kitchen look beautiful, there is no other option for me.
