Tips Installing Fir Kitchen Cabinets
Fir Kitchen Cabinets – When installing kitchen cabinets, make sure the cabinets are straight, square and firm. However, installing new lower fir kitchen cabinets in remodeling a kitchen, where floors are likely to be uneven, and walls, floors, and corners do not have 90-degree angles, may present some challenges. Here are some tips on how to install kitchen cabinets to help you overcome most problems. After you have removed the old kitchen cabinets, make a layout for the new cabinets.
First, mark lines on the floor 22 inches from the walls where the bottom fir kitchen cabinets will line up. Mark the highest point on the wall. Measure 34½ inches above that mark and use a leveler and a leveling ruler to mark, at that point, a straight line of the level around the walls. This is the line where the top edge of the fir kitchen cabinets will line up. If kitchen furniture ends against a wall, you may need filler strip. To install a filler strip, leave the last cabinet separate from the others.

Attach a leveling ruler to the front of the nearest installed unit, extend to the end of the wall and mark it. Leave the ¾ inch of calibration behind those marks (by the thickness of the filler strip) and fit a stud to the wall. Then install and secure the last fir kitchen cabinets and measure the gap between the front frame and the wall.
