As I mentioned above, you have the option of using a piece of 1 x 3 lumber for the installation or building a frame to support the cabinets (I have included a picture of a sample frame below). This can be made out of 2x 4s and should be tall enough to support the bottom of your wall cabinets. If you plan on installing more than one kitchen, then I would suggest the frame, but a piece of lumber will do just fine if this is a one time event. In either case, you will need another set of hands to help with the installation.
There are however, a few general kitchen cabinet buying tips that may help you in your kitchen cabinet research.Kitchen Cabinet Wood Choices Whether you are buying custom made cabinets, stock cabinets, or RTA cabinets, they will all offer a wide range of wood choices. Solid hardwood cabinets, such as Cherry, Maple, Birch, Hickory and Oak typically cost much more than laminate or veneer finished cabinets. Face Framed Kitchen Cabinets Face framed kitchen cabinet construction is the most prevalent kitchen cabinet construction type in the United States and usually it is lower cost. This construction technique involves the building of a kitchen cabinet face out of hardwood pieces. Typically the cabinet face is constructed using several 1"x 2" vertical and horizontal hardwood pieces. The face frame is then married to the front of a particleboard or solid plywood kitchen cabinet box. It is highly recommended that you try to find cabinets that use solid wood or solid plywood for the cabinet box.
One of the reasons for the popularity of RTA kitchen cabinets is that they are very convenient and at the same time less expensive than costly custom kitchen cabinetry. Another benefit of RTA cabinets is that you can place an order based on any kind of style or configuration you may have chosen for your kitchen cabinets. Of course, the quality varies depending upon the manufacturer as well as the cost. However, the good quality ready to assemble kitchen cabinets are manufactured by using high quality materials and excellent craftsmanship. Another reason for the popularity of ready to assemble cabinets is that they can be assembled quite easily. In many instances, you have home improvement and building contractors provide ready to assemble kitchen cabinets as a part of their product offerings. The cost of this is included in the overall cost of the project.
Pink Walls and White Cabinets: The paint of the wall can also be a complementary factor for your kitchen. Pink walls and white cabinets can look fabulous. Rosy pink wall being light in color tone will make the kitchen look spacious. Furthermore, if you place some nice accessories like colorful vases then it can again make the kitchen look fab. Those with glass door fronts should go for this idea readily. Contemporary White: If you just wish your kitchen to look elegant with nothing much cheesy then contemporary white is the best choice. With high class furnishing, it will be ideal to make your kitchen a lovely place. Stainless steel countertops with contemporary white cabinets can look really sparkly.
