Installing kitchen cabinets by yourself can seem to be a daunting task, especially if you have very little experience or knowledge of the process. However, if you have a guide or handbook that you can refer to and follow step by step, then it is going to be much easier for you to understand the installation process.
A guide the will show you from the very beginning how to install cabinets, from laying out the plans on the walls to making sure that evrything is in place before you start. A guide that will give you detailed pictures and diagrams for each step along the way. Simply watching a short video clip on the computer is not going to really help you all that much.
Do those videos show you how to layout the design or show you what to do when you have out of level ceilings and the cabinets are to be installed against the ceiling. Do they explain how to frame for peninsula base and wall cabinets. Are they going to explain to you what to do if your walls are out of plumb and you need to scribe a filler. No, they show you how to screw a cabinet against a perfectly level and flat wall, and in all reality, that very rarely is the case.
If you had access to a guide that will tell you exactly what to do in all of the mentioned instances plus many more, that would be great. And even better would be a guide that would give you access to a professional for support. Having the advice of someone that has years of experience installing kitchen cabinets and kitchen remodeling in general would be invaluable.
You see, there is a lot more to installing a kitchen than what anyone actually realizes. It is more than just drawing lines on the walls and screwing the cabinets in place. A lot more. Those videos that you have seen hardly touch the surface of installing kitchen cabinets, and do not even venture into other parts of the kitchen remodeling process such as appliances, countertops, flooring and other factors that will come into play during any kitchen remodel project.
If you are truly serious about installing your own kitchen, then I commend you. You are going to save yourself a lot of money, but you need to make sure that you avoid those commonly costly mistakes that homeowners usually make when doing it on their own. If only you had something like I just explained, you would be able to install your kitchen with
confidence and with the support of a professional. But really, is there actually anything like that out there.
