How to Install Kitchen Cabinet Hinges
Changing kitchen cabinet hinges is a way to update your kitchen without having to go all the fuss and expense of refinishing furniture or installing new ones. Measure the distance between the screw holes cabinet handle to determine the necessary distance between the holes in the door of the kitchen cabinet. Cut a piece of masking tape longer than the distance measured between the screw holes. Stick it inside the closet door where you want the handle. Repeat on the outside of the cabinet door so that the two pieces of tape mirror each other.
Keep the level of painter’s tape on the inside of the cabinet door and mark the position of the screw holes on the tape using the measurement noted above.Make a hole at each mark, sized to fit the screws that come with the kitchen cabinet hinges, right through to the other side of the door.
Slide the crests of the cabinet (padding, if equipped with handles) on the ends of the screws; protecting the closet door being marked by the handle. Place the handle so that each tip screw goes in the screw holes in the kitchen cabinet hinges. Hold the handle flat against the closet door while tightening the screws with the screwdriver.
