What is your choice? For those who like to add a touch of tradition to their bathrooms cabinet towers made of wood with carvings and designs are available. The accurate carvings used in such cabinets offer a royal look. Short cabinets that can be accommodated either below the sinks or the wash basins consume the least space. Though the ideal cabinet for any bathroom would be the narrow, long ones which can be placed either in the corners or mounted, the smaller ones fit to the size of the room and the budget too. The wooden cabinets are usually coated with special varnish that can withstand the wet and humid conditions of the bathroom and infestation of insects and bugs.
The most important part of buying them is to measure, measure, measure! Measure the length and width of cabinet doors. If you are installing entirely cabinets, measure depth. Measure your ceiling height. Understand that newer houses tend to have higher ceilings; it may be architecturally impossible to support having tall 42 inch cabinets installed in your old kitchen. But dont worry, a solution can be had for all cabinet spaces- as long as you remember to measure properly. Why the emphasis on measurements? Consider the consequences of inaccurate measuring- crookedly hung cabinets, improperly cabinet doors that dont open properly, or worse, you purchased your kitchen cabinets online and now cannot obtain a refund.
With the upper cabinets mounted go ahead and install the base cabinets in the exact same way. Each cabinet screwed side to side and then to the wall. Once all cabinets have been installed, go ahead and install your counter tops. Back splash work, electrical connections for micro waves or exhaust hoods and their actual installations should all be done before the doors are re-installed. You want to handle the doors gently as they are the major amount of what people actually see. Level the doors, install the drawer and door pulls and your done. Almost all municipalities require a building permit for this type of work as in a kitchen it involves plumbing, electrical, perhaps heating and possible structural changes as well. A garage set of work storage cabinets may not involve any of these items but be safe and ask first.
This way you will not be searching for a stud while standing on a ladder and balancing a cabinet. It is a few minutes work well spent. Next remove all cabinet doors marking each one is marked as to which cabinets they belong too. If you are working alone, take a piece of one by two inch furring and screw it to the wall flush with the bottom of the upper cabinet mark. You will be able to rest the cabinet on the furring while you plumb the cabinet and fasten it to the wall. Starting with the first cabinet, go ahead and screw the cabinet securely to the studs using three inch drywall screws. You can countersink them or course or use screw washers depending on what you want the final appearance to be.
