How To Install Cabinet Knobs

Step By Step Instruction On How To Install Your Cabinet Knobs

Cabinet Knobs can have a huge impact on the way your old or new cabinets look and feel. Also, you wont believe how incredibly easy they are to install. In a matter of minutes you can change the complete look and feel of your cabinets by adding beautiful new cabinet knobs.

Unlike cabinet hardware drawer pulls which require two holes to be drilled, cabinet knobs only need one hole to be placed through the face of the drawer. This means that they are much easier to install and they are much easier to replace.

Gathering Necessary Tools

Okay, so you are planning to install cabinet knobs, the next step is to round up the necessary items for installation. You are going to need are the following items: a pencil, a measuring tape, a level, a drill with the right sized drill bit, a screw driver and your new cabinet knobs which you have purchased from simplyknobsandpulls.com to place onto the cabinets.

Matching Your Style

When choosing the right cabinet knobs, make sure that you choose items that compliment the pre-existing hardware in your bathroom or kitchen. Also, make sure that the screw that you are going to be using is the right sized screw to fit your cabinet knob and go through the depth of your drawer. If the screw is too short or too long, you will need to make sure that you purchase the correct sized screw.

Taking Measurements and Installing

After getting the correct cabinet knobs for your kitchen or bathroom and the right sized screws, now determine where you would like your cabinet knobs to be placed in reference to your cabinets. Using your measuring tape figure out the exact center of the drawer or place on the drawer where you would like your hardware piece to reside. If you are worried about writing on your cabinets, you can use painters tape to place onto the cabinets and then make your markings accordingly. You can also use a drilling template for the job, this saves a lot of time and energy.

After making your placement on each drawer, if they are next to one another, take your level and line up the markings and ensure that the markings are level with one another. Once they are level it is time to start drilling into the cabinet drawers. Before you drill, make sure that the screws match up exactly with the dimension of bit that you will be using. Once you are ready, you can then drill your hole. Once you have drilled all of the holes, you can now slide the screws through and attach the cabinet knob on the other side. Do this now with all of your cabinet knobs.

Some new cabinet knobs will make any old cabinet really stand out.
