Project Overview

Corner kitchen cabinets are ideal for any kitchen. Making sure the doors are fitted correctly, so that they open and close properly is easier than you might think. We’ll show you how to install the doors on your new corner kitchen cabinet.

Step by Step Instructions

1 Attach the hinge plates to the cabinet
2 Attach the hinge plates to the door
3 Attach the door to the cabinet.
  • Step 1. Attach the hinge plates to the cabinet

    There are two types of hinges, one that attaches the door to the cabinet and the other that joins the two doors together.  The first step is to take the hinge plates off by pressing the button at the back of the hinge. Using your cordless drill, attach the hinge plates that connect the cabinet to the doors into the pre-drilled holes. The plates have elongated holes so that you can adjust them later with your screwdriver. If you’re uncertain, refer back to the instructions.
  • Step 2. Attach the hinge plates to the door

    Now it’s time to attach the hinge plates to the door. Use your cordless drill to screw the two hinge plates into the door. After you’ve done that, attach the three hinges to the second door, using the screws provided in the kit and your cordless drill.   

  • Step 3. Attach the door to the cabinet.

    Lift the door so that it’s next to the cabinet. Then click the three door hinges into the brackets on the inside of the cabinet. Take the second door and click the hinges from the first door into its brackets. Once you’ve attached the second door, close the door to make sure it fits snugly. If it’s sitting too high or too low, loosen the hinges plates in the cabinet and move the door up or down so it is level and can close properly.
