Once you have read and understood the method, start gathering up all the tools you will need for the job. There is no point in making a start if you don’t have everything you need to complete the job. It shouldn’t take you more than a couple of hours to get them all fitted, depending on the size of your kitchen.

Once you have all the tools you need, lay them out neatly in a section your workspace that is quick and easy to access so you can switch between tools in a flash. Start laying out the cabinet pieces you need to assemble in a 2D layout on the floor so you can match up the sides and plan where you are going to fix them together. Do this one cabinet at a time.

Once you’re ready to begin, it’s time to start installing. The first step is to attach the base cabinets to the wall. You will need to use stainless steel fasteners like screws or nails for this.

Then, you can begin attaching the upper cabinets. For this, you will likely need to use brackets or clips. make sure the brackets or clips are securely attached to the wall so the cabinets don’t fall off. You’ll need to ensure that you have the right tools for the job. This will include a drill or screwdriver, screws, brackets, and a level.

Once the upper cabinets are in place, secure the sides and add the doors. Make sure the hinges are properly attached to the door and the cabinet frame and that they are mounted in the correct position. Then, add the handles or knobs to the doors using a screwdriver and some screws.

Remember, righty tighty, lefty loosey.

And that’s it! You’ve successfully installed your new kitchen cabinets.

Now it’s time to start putting in the drawers. This part can be a bit tricky, but just take your time and be careful. Start by attaching the drawer slides to the side of the cabinet. Then, insert the drawer into the slide and make sure it’s properly aligned. Once everything looks good, you can screw in the screws to secure the drawer in place.


That’s it! You’ve now successfully installed your new kitchen cabinets. If you have any questions or need more help, there are plenty of resources available online or at your local hardware store. Good luck and let us know how you get on in the comments.
