Generally, the cost for installing your cabinets is similar to the cost of the cabinets. This then is a great place to save some money if your remodeling plans include the kitchen or bathrooms. Or you may be planning to install cabinets in an office or a children’s playroom. Installing cabinets requires an eye for detail and basic tools to locate the cabinets and install them level and plumb. There are many great resources for installation instructions. If you are uncertain whether you want to tackle an entire kitchen, try installing a bathroom vanity first. Although installing a kitchen full of cabinets is a much larger project, if you find installing the bathroom vanity easy, then with careful preparation you should be able to successfully install the kitchen cabinets. The challenges will be moving them, once built, and ensuring that they are perfectly level. But there is no reason you cannot learn to install the cabinets. So grab a level, and go for it!
