While you might want to hire an expert to install your new manufactured kitchen cabinets for you, it is good to know that they are very easy to install and you can actually do it yourself.
Here are the tools you will need if you decide to DIY:
2) Screw driver/drill
4) Tape measure
1) Take out the cabinet drawers and doors marking them as you go. This lightens the cabinets for an easier installation. Find and mark all studs. Measure and plan the available space carefully. Draw a layout of the cabinet plan. This layout does not need to be complicated, it should just give you an idea of how all cabinets will fit and line up together.
2) Insert the screws for the first cabinets. Level the line and screw a ledger board on it. Then lift the first cabinet into place. If you have a helper, you can have them hold it for you. Screw in two screws into every stud behind the cabinet; one at the top and another at the bottom. This will ensure that the cabinet has been secured properly.
3) If you have a sink cabinet, first measure your plumbing area and mark the spots where holes need to be drilled. Cut along these marks and lift the cabinet carefully into place. Adjust this cabinet to meet flush with all other cabinets using shims and a level. You can use clamps to secure them.
4) Finally, it is time to secure the other cabinets. Pre-drill holes on the spots where the cabinets are supposed to be attached together. Put shims in the spaces between the sink cabinet and the wall. Drill in some screws into the wall through these shims securing the cabinet into the wall. If there are gaps where the will meets the cabinets, preserve them. As easy as ABC.
