Why do you need a bathroom linen cabinet? It is not possible for all of us to construct huge bathrooms in our houses. It is in fact the smallest room of the house. Most of the space is consumed by a wash basin, bath tub, toilet commode, pipes and taps. In such situations bathroom linen cabinets help in holding bulky stuff such as bath towels, linens and wash clothes. Many people also use these cabinets to keep hair dryers, bathroom reading books, newspapers, lotions and creams. They are not just a decorative piece of every bathroom but also help in keeping the things set and managed well.
Special Order Cabinets The upgrade from store cabinets would be ordering them from your local home improvement store or local lumberyard. Quality will be much noticeably higher than stock cabinets, but your options are still somewhat limited as to what you can order. Expect to see laminated interiors in either white or maple color, solid wood drawers and doors, and upgrades such as soft close hinges or soft close drawer slides. These cabinets will come finished and ready to install. Typically, these will be offered in all 3" increments, usually ranging from 12 inches wide to 36 or even 48 inches wide. Doors and drawer fronts may be somewhat customizable in terms of styles and colors, but options are still limited. Still expect 1/2" thick carcasses (the box part of the cabinets) and 1/8" to 1/4" thick cabinet backs.
Semi-custom cabinets are usually ½ inch plywood with ¾ inch hardwood face frame and are delivered and installed. The drawers are dovetailed of ½ inch hardwood and doors are frame and panel hardwood. Prices range from $450 to $540 per linear foot or $4,500 to $5,400 for the 10 x 10 standard. Custom cabinets offer the same ½ inch plywood with ¾ inch hardwood face frame and are delivered and installed. The drawers are dovetailed of 5/8 inch hardwood and doors are frame and panel hardwood. Prices range from $1.200 to $1,400 per linear foot or $12,000 to $14,000 for standard measurements. Armed with these definitions and what they will mean to your kitchen remodel budget, you are now ready to look for your new cabinets.
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.
