Tips for installing bathroom cabinets

The   bathroom cabinet has a drastic effect on the functioning and the appearance   of your bathroom. If you have purchased a new bathroom cabinet and want to   install it by yourself, then this post is for you.

Some Important Tips for Installing   Bathroom Cabinets

  • If you are going for multiple bathroom cabinets, make sure that   all the cabinets are in level with each other. Install the corner cabinet   first and ensure its level, flush and plumb. Once done, then only install the   other cabinet in level with the first one.
  • If the parts of the bathroom cabinet are not assembled, then it   might have come with an instruction manual. Put the cabinet together as per   the instructions.
  • The wall on which you will be installing the cabinet should be in   level, clean and smooth. Use a straighthedge to ensure that it is actually flat.

Installation Process

  1. The first thing that you need to do is to take a stud finder and   locate the studs on which you will be installing the   cabinet.
  2. Not only from the side, but also make sure that the cabinet is   level from front to back as well. You can use shims for raising the cabinet   to the installation point or for making adjustments.
  3. Now, drive the screws right through the back rail of the cabinet   right into the studs.

That’s it! Installing a bathroom cabinet is that easy. Once the   cabinet is installed, take the countertop and place it in position and attach   it with the cabinet from beneath.
