Installing Kitchen Cabinet Shelves in Your Home

Installing kitchen cabinet shelves can be a great project for you to do when you are looking to improve the value and usefullness of your kitchen. Over time, these shelves can break down and need to be replaced. The general installation of these items remains pretty typical.

To begin this process, you are going to want to ensure that you have the basic tools. These items include a carpenter's saw, table saw, level, drill, screws and measuring tape. When you have gathered up these items, you can begin working on your kitchen cabinet shelves. At this time, you will also need to determine the type of wood shelving that you are going to be using as it will have some impact on what you are going to be able to do.

Your first task in this process is getting the dimensions you are going to need for the shelves. You need to note the width and length, then double check your measurements. This will help to ensure that you don't end up with odd sized boards and shelving that you will be unable to use in this process.

When you have determined the size of the kitchen cabinet shelves, then you will want to cut the pieces of wood you are going to be using. It is important that you ensure that you have square edges and that each shelve matches in thickness. The goal is to of course have a sturdy shelf as well. Because of that, you will want to take a minute to ensure that you are using stronger wood sources that will not bend or buckle when weight is placed on them.

Once you have cut out your shelves, you will then want to set them out on the areas where they will be installed. This is going to be your dry run to ensure each piece is going to fit into their location properly. In cases where you have connecting shelves, you will also be able to ensure that the entire setup is going to work properly as well. Before you continue the installation process, you will also want to ensure that spacing is correct and that the kitchen cabinet shelves will be level as well.

From this point, you will want to determine the type of shelf support clips that you have or need to get. There are a few different styles although the one pictured below is a common one and really easy to install. The hardest part here is spacing the drilled holes properly in the kitchen cabinets so the shelves can be spaced evenly and level.
