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 allotting and checking where the cupboards will go. By setting design markings on the dividers and floors, it won’t just assistance you with kitchen cupboard situation and stud areas, however it will likewise enable you to find where changes and shims will be required. Before we begin there are a few things that you will requirement for the venture: Chinese kitchen cabinets


Level or Laser Level


Measuring tape

Stud Finder


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


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

Utility blade or etch

Stamping Compass

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

As I referenced above, you have the alternative of utilizing a bit of 1′ x 3′ amble for the establishment or building an edge to help the cupboards (I have incorporated an image of an example outline beneath). 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, at that point 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 checking out our design lines. A few people begin with the base cupboards, yet we are going to begin with the divider cupboards first. There is no set in stone manner to begin, I simply want to begin with the upper cupboards first.

  1. Utilize a dimension and a pencil to draw a parallel line over the divider around 3 creeps up from the floor. Measure down from this line, to the floor, and discover the floors high point (on the off chance that it has one), and imprint 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 stamped, measure up another 19 1/2 inches and a dimension line over the divider to demonstrate the base of the divider cupboards. Daintily mark 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 stamp the stud areas at any rate 6 creeps above and beneath the line for the base of the divider cupboards. Draw straight vertical lines between the top and base imprints to demonstrate the focal point of the studs.
  4. On the off chance that you chose to go with the bit of 1′ x 3′ blunder, presently is the place you will utilize (on the off chance that you chose to go with the U-formed edge, it will become possibly the most important factor after the entirety of your lines are spread out). Screw an impermanent 1′ x 3′ bolster rail to the divider, adjusting the top edge of the rail with the line for the base edge of the divider cupboards. Connect 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 stamped, the time has come to begin introducing your kitchen cupboards. We are going to begin with the corner bureau (here is the place your assistant’s additional arrangement of hands will be required). Spot the corner bureau onto the transitory help rail and have your partner hold the corner bureau set up. Drill pilot gaps through the solid bureau back or its help rail and into the divider studs. Screw the bureau into the divider utilizing two screws that are long enough to infiltrate the studs by at any rate 1/2 inches. Check the highest point of the bureau for level and the front of the bureau for plumb. On the off chance that you need to address the position, simply back the screws out a smidgen and top shims behind the bureau at the stud areas. On the off chance that it is plumb and level, drive the fastens the whole distance and include a few more into each stud to guarantee that the bureau is verified firmly to the divider.
  6. Presently we are going to move onto the cupboards on either side of the corner bureau. As you introduce every one, utilize the braces to tie down every bureau to the neighboring bureau and after that check it for plumb with your dimension. On faceframe cupboards, it is a smart thought to bore two 1/8 inch pilot gaps through the sides of the faceframe and use screws. For this situation, with frameless, prepared to-gather kitchen cupboards we are going to screw through the pressed wood sides and use shims in the middle of the cupboards to guarantee a tight fit and ensure that the cupboard countenances 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 demonstrates 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. On the off chance that you don’t have a slanting corner bureau or visually impaired base bureau in the corner, drive the bordering bureau into spot and clip the two units together. Include a filler strip if necessary to permit the entryways and drawers enough leeway to open and close appropriately. In the event that essential, tap shims under the bureau and behind it to alter for plumb and level.
