Since you have your new kitchen cupboards, you are prepared to proceed onward to the following huge step…..Installing your kitchen cupboards. While the genuine establishment of the Kitchen Cabinets isn’tall that hard, the basic initial step is apportioning and checking where the cupboards will go. By setting format markings on the dividers and floors, it won’t just assist you with kitchen cupboard position and stud areas, however it will likewise enable you to find where alterations and shims will be required. Before we begin there are a few things that you will requirement for the venture:¬†Kitchen Cabinets Prescott


Level or Laser Level


Measuring tape

Stud Finder


1″ x 3″ Piece of timber (6′- 8′ long) or an Inverted U-formed edge (see notes underneath)


Screws (sufficiently long to go 1/2 into the studs)

Utility blade or etch

Stamping Compass

An additional arrangement of hands (you may need to reward one of your companions)

As I referenced above, you have the alternative of utilizing a bit of 1′ x 3′ blunder for the establishment or building a casing to help the cupboards (I have incorporated an image of an example outline underneath). This can be made out of 2′ x 4’s and ought to be tall enough to help the base of your divider cupboards. On the off chance that you plan on introducing more than one kitchen, I would recommend the edge, yet a bit of wood will do fine and dandy if this is a one time occasion. In either case, you will require another arrangement of hands to help with the establishment.

For this situation we purchased (RTA) Ready-To-Assemble Kitchen Cabinets from RTA Kitchen and Bathroom Cabinet Store. Presently the kitchen cupboards are collected, we are prepared to begin stamping out our design lines. A few people begin with the base cupboards, however we will begin with the divider cupboards first. There is no correct method to begin, I simply like to begin with the upper cupboards first.

1. Utilize a dimension and a pencil to draw a parallel line over the divider around 3 crawls up from the floor. Measure down from this line, to the floor, and discover the floors high point (in the event that it has one), and stamp a line by then. From that high point, Measure up 34 1/2 inches and draw a dimension line over the divider to assign the highest point of the base cupboards.

2. Since you have the highest point of the base cupboards checked, measure up another 19 1/2 inches and a dimension line over the divider to demonstrate the base of the divider cupboards. Delicately stamp every bureau’s measurements and situation on the divider to ensure that your unique design is right.

3. Utilize a stud discoverer to find the divider studs. Utilize a pencil to check the stud areas no less than 6 creeps above and beneath the line for the base of the divider cupboards. Draw straight vertical lines between the best and base imprints to show the focal point of the studs.

4. In the event that you chose to run with the bit of 1′ x 3′ amble, presently is the place you will utilize (in the event that you chose to run with the U-formed casing, it will become possibly the most important factor after the entirety of your lines are spread out). Screw a brief 1′ x 3′ bolster rail to the divider, adjusting the best edge of the rail with the line for the base edge of the divider cupboards. Append it by driving 3 or 4 two inch screws through the rail into the divider studs.

5. Since we have every one of the lines checked, the time has come to begin introducing your kitchen cupboards. We will begin with the corner bureau (here is the place your assistant’s additional arrangement of hands will be required). Place the corner bureau onto the transitory help rail and have your partner hold the corner bureau set up. Penetrate pilot gaps through the durable bureau back or its help rail and into the divider studs. Screw the bureau into the divider utilizing two screws that are sufficiently long to infiltrate the studs by no less than 1/2 inches. Check the highest point of the bureau for level and the front of the bureau for plumb. In the event that you need to address the position, simply back the screws out a smidgen and best shims behind the bureau at the stud areas. On the off chance that it is plumb and level, drive the tightens the distance and include a few more into each stud to guarantee that the bureau is anchored firmly to the divider.

6. Presently we will move onto the cupboards on either side of the corner bureau. As you introduce every one, utilize the cinches to anchor every bureau to the neighboring bureau and afterward check it for plumb with your dimension. On faceframe cupboards, it is a smart thought to bore two 1/8 inch pilot openings through the sides of the faceframe and use screws. For this situation, with frameless, prepared to-collect kitchen cupboards we will screw through the compressed wood sides and use shims in the middle of the cupboards to guarantee a tight fit and ensure that the cupboard faces are plumb.

7. After all the divider cupboards are set up, introduce the corner or end base case bureau. Use shims where expected to level the cupboard and raise it up to the line which shows the high purpose of the floor. Make certain it is level from front to back and from side to side, at that point screw it to the divider studs. In the event that you don’t have an askew corner bureau or visually impaired base bureau in the corner, drive the connecting bureau into place and clip the two units together. Include a filler strip if necessary to permit the entryways and drawers enough freedom to open and close legitimately. In the event that important, tap shims under the bureau and behind it to modify for plumb and level.

8. Drive screws through the bureau back (and shims) into the divider studs. Trim any overabundance material from the shims with a sharp etch or blade. Keep on including abutting cupboards thusly, going along with them a similar way you associated the divider cupboards in stage 6.

9. On the off chance that your cupboards wind up ramming into another divider, you may require a filler strip to make up the last couple of inches. In the event that you have custom cupboards, they ought to have been worked to fill this hole, however in the event that you are utilizing stock or RTA Kitchen Cabinets the filler strip might be required. On the off chance that you do need to utilize a filler strip, leave the last bureau separated from alternate cupboards. Clasp a straightedge to the substance of the closest introduced unit, stretching out sufficiently far for you to put arrangement stamps on the end divider. Permit a 3/4″ balance behind those imprints (for the thickness of the filler piece) and attach a projection to the divider. At that point introduce and affix the last bureau and measure the hole between its face outline and the divider.
