If your cabinets have whats called a four inch high toe kick feature, you may have the option of cutting this four inch height down to offset a small difference in the floor heights. Be careful as cutting too much can make the cabinets look squat. If the cabinets came with a detached set of toe kicks already framed, this makes leveling a great deal easier as well. Just lay out the base cabinet supports and check to see if they are level. Some shimming or minor cutting to provide perfectly sub-bases makes the base cabinet installation a snap. You need not worry whether each cabinet is level as the bases will automatically make it so.
Bathroom cabinets are sold by kitchen cabinet retailers, building supply stores, home improvement centres and a couple more. While ready to assemble ones are the cheapest ones, decide on the quality, size, design and decorative elements of the cabinet before purchasing it. Check the drawers of the cabinets. They must move in and out smoothly without any crackling noise. Also they must not sag or come out fully when pulled out completely. Not but the least check the material used to build the cabinet. Also see if the piece has a good finish and outlook, after all it is going to add good looks to your bathroom and you are paying for it. Check the doors, accessories used, the hinges and other hardware used to make it. Bathroom linen cabinets are one of the best options that offer your bathrooms and clean and tidy look.

Place two C clamps in the first cabinet, lift the second cabinet into place and using the C clamps, firmly clamp the front face stile of the first cabinet to the second. The combination of the wall furring strip and the two clamps will allow you to let go and do the work of affixing the second cabinet to the wall and to each other. Making sure that the front faces are perfectly flush with each other and the heights are perfectly matched, standard practice is to pre-drill a screw hole behind the door hinge. Using drywall screws again, insert a screw in the hole making sure the screw will not penetrate through the stile of the other cabinet (too long). Place one screw behind each hinge. Now fasten the second cabinet to the wall and then release the clamps. This same scenario repeats itself until you reach the end of the cabinets. You may have spaces where a window occurs but your furring strip will assure that both sections are mounted at the same height.
Wall corner cabinets include: (1) the diagonal-front -- this cabinet has a modified pentagon shape (this is the one most frequently chosen for this position); (2) the easy reach -- this cabinet appears to be two adjoining wall cabinets (it has a center hinge to allow opening the first door or both and allows direct access to the contents on the shelves); and the blind -- half of this cabinet is buried in the corner itself and can be accessed only by the front door of the cabinet -- this cabinet is the unfortunate choice in instances where structure or an appliance allows no other option. In conclusion then, when choosing cabinets in general and wall or base corner cabinets in particular, your best choices will depend on the size and shape of available space, your budget and the items that you plan to store there. Additionally, you really should make every effort to: (a) be as fully informed as possible about your cabinet options and (b) carefully review all of your decisions before ordering any cabinets -- whether or not you have bottomless pockets.
