Everything You Should Know Before Taking on the Task of Installing Kitchen Cabinets Yourself

Before taking on a large task like installing kitchen cabinets yourself here are some basic problems you should keep in mind that many unqualified homeowners run into.

The most common problem faced with DIY kitchen cabinet installation starts with measuring. Measurements are taken wrong and now appliances aren’t tightly fitted to the new cabinets or even worse won’t fit at all, kitchen sink holes are cut too big and the  sink won’t fit, doors hinges are placed too close or too far leaving door gaps and non-working cabinet doors, cabinets are hung crooked. So much depends on critical measuring every detail.

Is saving a little extra money really worth making your kitchen look lopsided? When it comes down to it, these ’little’ kitchen cabinet installation mistakes could have you running back and forth to the home improvement store for more and more supplies to fix your mistakes, in the end costing you more money and time when you could simply hire a professional handyman cabinet installer.
