How to Install Kitchen Cabinets | Ask This Old House

This Old House general contractor Tom Silva shares expert tips and techniques for installing new kitchen cabinets. (See below for a shopping list, tools, and steps.)
SUBSCRIBE to This Old House:

Shopping List for How to Install Kitchen Cabinets:
Kitchen cabinets [
3-inch screws [ to fasten cabinets to walls
Wood shims [ for leveling and plumbing cabinets
2x4 blocking [ to secure peninsula or island cabinets

Tools for How to Install Kitchen Cabinets:
2-foot [ and 6-foot [ levels, for determining level and plumb alignment
Tape measure [
Screwdriver [ to unscrew doors
Cordless drill [ for drilling holes
Impact driver [ to drive screws
Utility knife [ for trimming shims

Steps for How to Install Kitchen Cabinets:
1. Check the ceiling for level in two directions. If it’s out of level, find the low spot and use it as the measuring reference point.
2. Measure down from the ceiling (or low spot) 33 inches in several places and mark the walls. These marks represent the bottom of the upper cabinets.
3. Connect the marks with a long level and a sharp pencil to produce a level line along the kitchen walls.
4. Mark the stud locations on the walls, then measure and transfer stud locations to the back of the upper cabinets. (If you prefer to proceed with one cabinet at a time, begin with the one that will hang in the corner of the kitchen, and continue with consecutive cabinets.)
5. Pre-drill a screw-shank clearance hole through the cabinet backs at each stud location.
6. Unscrew and remove the cabinet doors; place the doors in a nearby room for safekeeping.
7. Hold the first wall cabinet in place in the corner of the kitchen. Be sure the bottom of the cabinet is even with the level line marked in Step 3.
8. Drive one screw through the upper back of the cabinet and into the wall stud.
9. Check the cabinet for plumb with a level. If necessary, slide shims behind the cabinet. Then drive in the remaining screws to secure the cabinet. Trim the shims with a utility knife.
10. Repeat the previous six steps to install the rest of the upper cabinets.
11. To prepare for installing the base cabinets, lay a 6-foot level on the floor in several places to identify the high spot.
12. From the floor’s high spot, measure up 34_ inches and mark the wall.
13. From that mark, draw a level line around the kitchen walls. This line represents the top of the base cabinets.
14. Install the sink base cabinet first, centering it under the window.
15. Drive shims under the sink cabinet, if necessary, to raise it flush with the 34_-inch reference line marked on the wall.
16. Fasten the sink base cabinet to the wall studs with 3-inch screws. Before fully tightening the screws, slip a shim behind the cabinet to fill any void.
17. Check the cabinet for level from front to back; slide shims under the front of the cabinet, if necessary, to level it. Trim the shims with the utility knife.
18. Install the remaining base cabinets in a similar manner.
19. To secure peninsula or island cabinets, screw 2x4 blocking to the floor. Set the cabinets over the blocking, then screw through the toekick and into the blocking.
20. Cover the exposed end of the cabinets with a decorative panel. Drive in short screws from inside the cabinet.
21. Install all the drawers and doors.
22. Fabricate a filler strip to fit alongside the base cabinet that abuts the range. Fasten the filler by screwing through the cabinet face frame.
23. Once the base cabinets are installed, make a template for the new countertop.

How to Hang Crown Molding on Kitchen Cabinets | Ask This Old House

Ask This Old House general contractor Tom Silva installs crown molding on kitchen cabinets with full overlay doors
SUBSCRIBE to This Old House:

Time: 6 hours

Cost: $100

Skill Level: Moderate

Tools List for Hanging Crown Molding:
Brad nailer
Compressor
Drill driver
Miter saw
Caulking gun

Shopping List:
5/4” Pine
Fast drying spray primer
Super glue
Wood glue
Brad nails
Wood screws
Pencil
Wood putty
Paintable caulking

Steps:
1. Cut strips of the 5/4” pine to length and width, based on the size of the cabinets. These will be the filler pieces.
2. Make rabbet cuts on the filler pieces so that the piece fits tightly on the top of the cabinet and over the door of the cabinet.
3. Once the cuts are all made, spray paint the filler pieces to match the color of the cabinets in case they show through.
4. Mount the filler pieces to the cabinets using super glue to hold it in place and wood glue to more permanently bond it to the cabinet.
5. From the sides of the cabinet, nail the filler pieces in the place. For the front filler piece, drill from underneath the inside of the cabinet, and then secure that piece with wood screws.
6. Hold up the crown molding on the sides of the cabinet. Be sure they’re tight against the wall. Use a pencil to mark from the inside the correct measurement to cut the crown molding. Draw an arrow on the inside to help determine which angle the miter cut should go.
7. Hold the crown molding upside down and backwards so that it presses up safely against the fence of the miter saw. To keep it from slipping, you can use some of the clear polyurethane glue and a couple small pieces of wood to glue on the base of the saw to act as stops.
8. Turn the miter saw to 45 degrees based on the direction of the mark drawn on the crown molding during measuring. Cut the piece.
9. To make the sister cut on the opposite piece of crown molding, turn the saw to the opposite 45 degree angle and cut it again.
10. Nail the two pieces together using the brad nailer and then hold the crown molding back up to the cabinet to get the next measurement. Measure and mark the front piece of crown molding. Be sure to also mark the direction of the angle for the crown molding like before.
11. Make the miter cut for the front piece of crown molding. Then, make the sister cut for the following side like before.
12. Mount the crown molding to the cabinet using the brad nailer. Repeat this process with the rest of the cabinets with outside corners.
13. For any cabinets with an inside corner, cut the miters with the opposite 45 degree angle so that the miter angles on the crown molding cuts into itself.
14. Fill in all the nail holes with wood putty.
15. Caulk around the crown molding where it meets the ceiling to give it a finished look.

Resources:
The homeowner had already purchased shaker-style cabinets that came with the crown molding.

The wood glue and super glue Tom used for the crown molding and the filler pieces are both manufactured by Gorilla Glue (

The other materials Tom used to install the crown molding, including the brad nailer, compressor, and spray paint, are all found at home centers. For the spray paint, Tom recommends getting a fast drying spray primer with a dry time of one hour.

Expert assistance with this segment was provided by Universal Factory Direct (

If you’d like to know how to install or hang upper wall cabinets, I am here to teach you. Typically, upper wall cabinets are hung in kitchens and laundry rooms. Today, I’m installing mine in the garage. I currently have a sink below the space where the cabinets will hang. I will cover Proper positioning for the new cabinets so that they look visually pleasing and so that people don’t bump their heads. There are industry standards that govern wall cabinet placement and I will cover that, as well.
Can I do this alone?

I will show you the secret to installing wall cabinets alone but I do have the help from my father today. He was around and it always makes the job easier to secure the first screw if there are more than two hands. Think safety! Some wall cabinets can be large and heavy, so don’t take the chance if you you don’t have to. I only required a few minutes of his time and then I finished the job by myself – you can too.
What do you need for this job? Wall cabinets in whatever size is necessary, a few simple tools and the proper fasteners to make a secure installation. I will take you through my project, step-by-step, and explain what I’m doing so that you can apply my methods to your own job. You will quickly and easily have storage behind closed doors. This is a must in a garage space where items quickly pile up and become eye sores. After you see my results, I will have you planning your next wall cabinetry project and your results will be just as good as mine. Best yet, this is an easy DIY project.

How to Build a Wall-Hung TV Cabinet | This Old House

Senior technical editor Mark Powers and art director Douglas Adams demonstrates how to assemble and install a wall-hung TV cabinet. (See below for a shopping list and tools.)
SUBSCRIBE to This Old House:

Shopping List for How to Build a Wall-Hung TV Cabinet:
- Bifold door. Select a solid-wood bifold door. To determine the width you'll need, add about 4 inches to the width of your monitor and divide by 2. You'll need to round up to the nearest stock door size.
- 1x stock. Choose boards for the sides wide enough to span from the wall just past the face of the TV, as it protrudes from the wall. For the top and bottom, choose boards at least 2 inches wider than the side boards, to account for the thickness of the doors and the beveled overhang.
- 1x4s, to make the cleat and crosspiece. Get two 6-foot boards.
- Bifold door hinges, to join the halves of each door once you cut it down. Reuse the three that come with your doors and get one more.
- Flush-door H hinges, to attach the doors to the frame. Get four.
- 1 1/2-inch screws
- Magnet catches, made for cabinets. Get two.

Installing Cabinets For Garage Storage

We’re going to transform an open wall in the garage to a wall full of storage cabinets. We have 6 cabinet units that are 12 inches deep, 30 inches tall and 36 inches wide. We also have one tall unit that is 16 inches wide and 20 inches deep. All of these cabinets will be suspended from the wall including the tall unit. The owners already determined what kind of layout they wanted so my first task was to locate studs to be able to screw the cabinets into. You always hope for studs to be on 16 inch centers which makes finding plenty of wood to hang the cabinets from pretty simple. But of course in this case they are 24 inch on center which isn’t great but I only have one cabinet stack where we have only one stud in the space behind the cabinets.

How to Install a Simple Tile Backsplash | Ask This Old House

Ask This Old House General Contractor Tom Silva teaches a homeowner a simple technique for tiling backsplash.
SUBSCRIBE to This Old House:

Time: 2-3 hours

Cost: $100

Skill Level:
Beginner

Tools List for Installing a Simple Tile Backspash:
- Measuring tape [
- Scissors [
- Rubber float [
- Utility knife [
- Bucket [

Shopping List:
- Square tile [
- Tile adhesive mat [
- Pre-mixed grout [
- Degreasing cleaner [
- Drop cloth [
- Painters tape [
- Sponge [

Steps:
1. Clean the wall thoroughly with the cleaner to remove any grease or other debris.
2. Secure the drop cloth on the counter using the painters tape, covering the entire work area.
3. Mark the two sides of the wall using the painters tape where the backsplash should start and stop.
4. Measure the space you plan on tiling. Transfer the measurements to the tile adhesive mat and cut to size using scissors.
5. Peel one half of the back off of the adhesive mat, align the unexposed section to a straight surface like the existing countertop. Ensure the side with the thicker gap between glue dots is aligned to overlap the next sheet.
6. Once the sheet is in the correct position, stick it to the wall. Then peel the bottom half and stick that to the wall.
7. Repeat this process until the desired area is covered. Use the rubber float to push the adhesive mat to the wall for a permanent bond.
8. Hold the tile up to the wall to determine where it will need to be cut to size.
9. Use the utility knife to cut the mesh behind the tile.
10. Peel the plastic coating off of the adhesive mat, and carefully place each tile section onto the adhesive.
11. Once the tile is in the correct position, push it in place with a rubber float.
12. Repeat this process until the wall is covered with the tile.
13. Fill the gaps between the tile with the premixed grout and the rubber float. Apply it diagonally until all of the spaces between the tile have been filled with grout.
14. Fill the bucket with water and using a clean sponge, wipe the excess grout off the tile, again diagonally. Be careful to only wipe the grout off the face of the tile, not the grout in between the tiles.
15. After 24 hours, a haze may appear on the tile. To remove it, wipe the tile with a rag.

Resources:
To attach the tile to the wall, Tom used the SimpleMat tile setting mat, manufactured by Custom Building Proucts (

Tom installed Desert Sunset mosaic tile, manufactured by MS International (

The homeowner selected “Earth” colored premixed grout, which is also manufactured by Custom Building Products (

All of these, plus the other supplies and materials for this project, including razor knives, painter’s tape, and sponges, are sold at home centers.
