If you want to add character to your kitchen, well chosen doors and drawers are a great way to go about it and using our guide, you’ll understand just how easy it is to fit them to your new kitchen units. It explains how to screw on hinge plates, how to secure cupboard doors and drawer fronts into place, when and how to attach handles. You’ll also find detailed instructions on aligning your doors correctly, and what to do if you need to move them up or down, left or right, in or out.
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 help and advice page for 'how to fit handles to doors and drawers' for further guidance.
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 work surface is secure, you will be ready to unveil your new kitchen!
Wall cabinets offer handy storage and can be a great design feature in any kitchen. But they must be hung securely, evenly and in the correct place. Our guide will show you how to hang your new kitchen cabinets no matter if you’re working with masonry or timber frame walls. You’ll find out how to mark up your walls, how to check for cables and pipes, where to position the cabinets, ensure they’re level and finally, how to fix and secure them to the wall.
Before you do anything, find out whether you have masonry or timber frame walls. With masonry walls, cabinets can be hung anywhere. With timber frame walls, you need to identify secure points onto which the wall brackets can be fixed. This is important as it could affect the final design of your kitchen, and the size of the cabinets you’re able to hang.
After hanging your wall cabinets, secure them to each other with screws to increase their strength. Find more information on this technique on our help and advice page for 'how to install base cabinets'.
Hanging a large wall cabinet is a two-person job, so make sure you have help so you can ensure it hangs safely and securely on the wall. When fixing doors and handles, make sure you use a stepladder rather than standing on the base cabinets or worktop as this can cause unnecessary damage. Always ensure your wall cabinets are level with a spirit level.
