How to Install Kitchen Cabinet Hardware (the Easy Way!)


Installing cabinet hardware is a simple
project that’ll put the finishing touch on your kitchen cabinets. This project
requires basic tools that you probably already have. You’ll need a drill and
bits, a screwdriver, measuring tape, painters tape, a hardware mounting
templates, and a pen or pencil to mark. To make sure all the knobs are evenly
aligned buy a mounting template from your local hardware store. They’re inexpensive, easy to use and eliminate the risk of uneven installation. Align the template in the corner of the cabinet door and use the holes to mark where you want the
knob to be installed. Before drilling place painters tape on
the back side of the door. This will prevent the wood from splintering when
drilling. With a steady hand, begin to drill into
the door. Keep the drill level throughout the process for accurate results each
time. Hold the screw in place installing the knob or at least until it’s secure enough to finish with the screwdriver. Be sure not to rush through the step. It’s best to take your time to avoid damaging the cabinetry with any imperfections on the knob. Find and mark the drawer’s center point. Accuracy is key here because the last thing you want is for your pulls to be off center. Align the center of the drawer template
with the mark from step five. Make sure you know the center-to-center hole measurement of the pulls. Find them on the template and mark each spot. Once you mark the holes repeat steps two through four to finish the project. And there you have it! Installing cabinet
hardware is an easy home improvement project that’ll totally change the look
of your kitchen. Want more home inspiration? Subscribe to our channel for installation guides, project ideas & product features. Home is where GreyDock begins.
