Basically, you will have wall cabinets (which are secured to the wall and do not touch the floor) and base cabinets (which are also secured to the wall and do touch the floor).

Not only are the cabinets secured to each other, but they must be level with each other.

I realize some builders like to install flooring after the cabinets are installed to save on cost, but I prefer to do it before. Hire only a professional cabinet installer to hang your cabinets.

Pros will make certain the cabinets are plumb, level and are installed properly.

If so, you will need the following tools: Measure from the corner to the first stud that is within 48-inches. Using a large knife, spread a finish coat, let dry and sand with 150-grit for a smooth finish.This might involve the following: Although you may derive personal satisfaction by smashing into a wall like Kathy Bates in the movie Fried Green Tomatoes, or maybe I'm just talking about myself, it's better to employ a systematic approach.You can hire a general contractor to hire and oversee other workers or you can hire them yourself.It may take three coats of mud, which means the drywaller will need three days total for each coat to dry in between.

There are products on the market that dry faster, but they may not be practical to use in a kitchen.Always butt finished edges to finished edges and unfinished edges to unfinished edges to create valleys. This is a job that the average home owner can do, but typically do-it-yourselfers can't do it as quickly.
