Some of the tools that you’ll need are; a long level, tape measure, screw gun or drill with the appropriate bit. You’ll also want to make sure that there is proper backing on the walls that you’ll hang your cabinets on. This is perhaps the most crucial aspect that you must adhere to. If the studs can not be located, or the positioning of the DIY kitchen cabinets do not align with the studs, then placing the proper backing in so that you cabinets are tight and secure on the wall is critical.
You’ll want to start the DIY cabinet install in the nearest corner to the center of the wall mounted cabinets. Measure the height from the floor or countertop, to the top of where the cabinets will be mounted, so that you’ll install them at the right height. Then you need to make the wall where the top of the cabinets will go. Using your level, draw a level line starting in the corner and extending out on both walls. This will give you a guiding line to keep all the cabinets level and plumb.
DIY kitchen cabinets installation can be difficult if are not starting with perfectly level and plumb lines. If you fail to measure, you end up having problems in the future like the doors not aligning properly, and it can even affect the over stability of the entire set of cabinets.
