Installing kitchen cabinets is a great way to give your kitchen a fresh, new look. But before you start, it's important to make sure you have all the necessary tools and materials. A cordless drill, miter saw, jig saw, cabinet connector, cabinet clamp, and leveler are all essential for the job. When you're ready to begin, start in a corner where two sets of assembled kitchen cabinets meet.
If you plan to paint the kitchen as part of your renovation project, it's best to do so before installing your new kitchen cabinets. If you're finishing old cabinets, there are cabinet repair products available for all styles of kitchen cabinets, including kitchen islands, custom kitchen cabinets, or ready-to-assemble kitchen cabinets. If your kitchen is going to have solid-surface countertops AND you have an L- or U-shaped kitchen layout, it's worth using a laser leveler to ensure that the base cabinets are installed perfectly flat. Now that you know what it takes to assemble and install kitchen cabinets, you can start with a complete kitchen remodel. With the right tools and materials on hand, you'll be able to install your new cabinets with ease.
