In part one of our video guide on installing kitchen cabinets, we show you how to take proper measurements with our EZ-Level to ensure your ledger board is correctly mounted for the wall cabinets. Here, ensuring the ledger board is measured from the highest point of the floor is essential. To make things easy, we utilize what's called a "story stick" to make sure all of the correct measurements are made. Of course, the instructional video also covers determining the high spot, wiring for under-cabinet lighting, and locating studs to hang the wall cabinets.

From there, we take a close look at hanging the ledger board (an integral step), as well as venting for a microwave. Each and every one of these preparation steps are crucial to the entire process, so be sure to take your time and follow the video closely.

Keys to Installing Kitchen Cabinets

Needless to say, without proper measurements and preparation, your kitchen cabinets likely won't line up as intended. From covering the floors before starting work to hanging the ledger board, any misstep can be trouble. This is why we encourage utilizing our EZ-Level. Even the slightest misalignment can affect the process and outcome. So, when it comes to installing kitchen cabinets, the precise level and easy-to-see laser is a true lifesaver.

If you're planning to install kitchen cabinets in your home, ensure perfect results with our innovative EZ-Level. Even in brightly-lit rooms, the laser is easy to see, helping you make the proper measurements at all times.
