Preparation & Planning

Doors and drawers should only be fitted after your cabinets have been assembled and installed, so make sure everything is level and secure before you proceed.


Once you have fitted your doors and drawers, you are ready to fit your handles. See our film 'how to fit handles to doors and drawers' for further guidance.

Hints & tips

Keep the blue protective film cover on your doors and drawers for as long as possible to avoid any damage. Once your kitchen build is complete, and your worksurface is secure, you will be ready to unveil your new kitchen!


Take care when using a screwdriver and make sure you do not overtighten screws, as this can damage your cabinets.
