Kitchen Cabinet Installation FAQ

A few details will affect the cost of a cabinet installation. 

  • The number of cabinets
  • The removal and disposal of old cabinets
  • The size of your kitchen
  • Trim and Moulding selection
  • Any structural changes to the kitchen

For an idea, an average kitchen cabinet installation can cost between $160 and $380 per linear foot for stock or semi-custom cabinets. For your kitchen, request a free custom estimate from our team of designers.

Correct measurements ensure that your new kitchen cabinets will be the right size. 

  1. Make a rough sketch of your kitchen. Clearly label all appliances, windows, and doors. Also mark where electric outlets, plumbing, and vents are. 
  2. Take horizontal measurements. If doing a complete kitchen makeover, measure the entire wall space. If you are only replacing cabinets, take the measurements of the current cabinets. Measurements should be from one wall edge to another. 
  3. Take vertical measurements of your space. Take the distance from the floor to the ceiling at each corner and the middle of each wall. 
  4. Find the center point of existing fixtures, such as appliances, sinks, and windows. Measure the center point of all of these. 
  5. Measure the doors and windows. Include center points, height, and width.
  6. Measure the distance between objects on the wall and the floor and ceiling. This helps to ensure there are no obstacles in the way of cabinets.
  7. Measure your existing cabinets. Include the height, width, and depth.

While there is no strict standard for how high your cabinets should be, the most common height is 18 inches above your countertops. If you would prefer more space, then 20 inches is preferable. 

A cabinet installation job typically takes 2 or 3 days. 

  1. Be careful with your cleaning cloths. Choose soft cloths that are lint-free. Use soft cotton fabrics like cheesecloth or chamois. Don't use a dishcloth or a sponge.
  2. Avoid abrasive cleaning solvents. Use natural products, or mild, grease-cutting hand washing dish soap.
  3. Use a mild detergent, such as mixing 2 tablespoons of dish soap into 2 cups of warm water.
  4. Wipe cabinets with mild soap and water, using a soft cloth. After a first coat, rinse the cabinet with clean, fresh water using a second cloth. Finally, use a third, dry cloth to dry the cabinets.
  5. For difficult stains, use baking soda. 
  6. Limit your cabinets from moisture exposure. Avoid hanging wet dishcloths or towels over cabinets or cabinet doors.
  7. Follow best practices. Immediately clean up any spills or splatters. The sooner you clean, the less chance of staining or discoloring. Grease and food particles become more difficult over time. 
  8. Don't forget about the tops of cabinets. These tend to build up dust. Clean them every other week, or more often if you cook a lot.
  9. If you want shiny cabinets, use a furniture polish after cleaning. 
  10. Use commercial furniture waxes, sprays, and polishes sparingly on kitchen cabinets. Oily polishes or cleaners aren't necessary to keep cabinets moisturized. If wood starts to dry or crack, it means there is a lack of humidity in the air.

Yes, you can. However, keep a few things in mind:

  • Assembling the cabinets will require some skill, and you might need to purchase some tools to do so.
  • Measurements must be absolutely accurate, and all the cabinets must be level. Not a single centimeter out of place.
  • Cabinets are heavy, and become heavier when the shelves are full. They need to be bolted to the studs in the wall correctly. Sometimes you need to add more reinforcement. 
  • You need some strength as one person will have to hold them up while the other is accurately fastening them to the wall.
  • If the installation doesn't go right, then you might have to pay a contractor more money in order to undo whatever damage might have been caused.

On average, a cabinet installation costs about $5,452, with most homeowners spending between $1,858 and $9,245.

How To Install Kitchen Cabinets

Step 1

Ensure all installation tools/materials are onsite (table saw, miter saw, drills, oscillating saw, handle jig, level, stud finder, cabinet jacks, clamps, hole saw blades, brad nailer, pencil, ladder, shims, lacing screws, lag screws.


Review the countertop materials list to ensure all materials are present and accounted for.

Step 2

Find the highest point of the floor and make a mark for the cabinet location. Using the highest point and a level, mark along the wall to create a visual of where the cabinets will be placed. 

Step 3

Using a stud finder and a pencil, mark the locations of where the studs will go.

Step 4

Starting with the wall corner cabinet, begin hanging using a pre-marked wall line (cabinet jacks to level out and hold cabinets in place). Shim the backs as needed.

Step 5

Once level, use a lag screw to anchor to the wall through the back of the cabinet into a stud.

Step 6

Pre-drill a lacing hole (used to join cabinets together) in the next cabinet, then repeat the previous steps.

For microwave wall cabinets, get the outlet measurements and mark them on the back of the cabinet. Use an oscillating saw to cut out the location on the cabinet then hang the cabinet.

Step 7

Once all the walls are done, begin with the corner base cabinet following the previous steps.


Once you are at the sink cabinet, measure the plumbing line locations, and cut holes using a hole saw.

Step 8

Once all the cabinets are installed, use a brad nailer to apply toe kick skins.


If crown molding is involved, use a miter saw to cut the proper length, and brad nail into place.

We are extremely happy with our new kitchen cabinets and were very satisfied with the entire process from beginning to end. Appointments and times were kept, from the initial survey to being shown the various styles, colors and designs, to the delivery and installation of the cabinets. I have to give a special mention to their installer, we could tell that he took a lot of pride in his work and he didn't miss one detail. I'd recommend Cabinet & Company to anyone and we'll use them again in a heartbeat.

Hands down the best experience I have ever had with a cabinet company. I haven’t been able to find a better cabinet for my projects locally or on the internet. To top it all off the customer service, responsiveness to issues and professionalism I have received from Trent and his team are unmatched by any other company I’ve dealt with.
