Once the sub-bases for the lower cabinets are set, I recommend that you install the upper cabinets next as it is just plain easier. Once the wider base cabinets are installed it is harder to work on the narrower upper cabinets. Just measure up from the sub-base to get the top of the cabinets, add the counter thickness, add the space you want between the lower and upper cabinets (typically eighteen inches) and make a pencil mark. That is the bottom of your upper cabinets. Since your sub-base is level, just transfer the upper cabinet mark all along the run and you will have mark to set the bottom of each upper cabinet. Next locate all the wall studs and make a vertical mark using your level that will protrude both above and below the cabinets.
Purchasing Cabinets There are different tiers on purchasing cabinets too. You save money by assembling pre-cut parts from the manufacturer. Since cabinets will be the focal point of your kitchen, you may prefer to have assembled cabinets that are installed by the dealer. The following descriptions will help you make this decision. RTA or Ready-to-Assemble is provided by the cabinet manufacturer. If the manufacturer doesnt incur the labor expense to assemble the cabinet, he will pass this savings on to you. If you are going to use RTA cabinets to cut down on the expenses, you need to find your cabinets at the beginning of your project. You need time to assemble them and ready to install after installing the flooring, painting, papering are complete.
However, if you are careful, purchasing cabinets online can be a smart budget move. You can purchase budget-friendly pre-made or stock kitchen cabinets that you repaint or finish yourself. Most times, you will have to install them yourself, so be prepared. Then again, your tastes may involve buying or designing custom cabinets online. You may require a special height, or you just want a unique look. You might want circular cabinets or some other shape! Some kitchen cabinet designs have glass inlays or fronts; those are usually always semi-custom or custom made. Other "bonus" perks that you may wish to install in your cabinets are pull out butcher blocks, rotating shelves, or pockets or spice racks on the inside of the cabinet doors themselves.
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.
