Project Overview

An end panel gives your kitchen cabinets a nice, clean finish. They are great for making a kitchen look level and square even when the room has uneven floors and walls. We show you how to trim and install your panel so that it sits in line with your cabinets. 
Continue to step-by-step instructions

Step by Step Instructions

1 Check that the panel fits the cabinet properly
2 Trim the panel
3 Install the panel on the end of the cabinets
  • Step 1. Check that the panel fits the cabinet properly

    Place the end panel in position against the cabinets. It should line up with the top of the cabinets and sit 20mm out down the front face. If your floor or wall are not quite square, you can make the panel line up by trimming it.
  • Step 2. Trim the panel

    Measure the dimensions of the cabinet side. Mark up your panel with those dimensions to see how much you need to trim. If you do need to trim the panel, use a plane to trim the panel to size. Trim from the back and bottom edges so it will be hidden when the panel is installed. 
  • Step 3. Install the panel on the end of the cabinets

    Clamp the panel in place on the end of the cabinet. Screw holes in each corner using a counter sink drill bit. Drill far enough in to get a counter sink for your screw head, but not so far that the drill bit pokes out the other side. Drive your screws in and you’re done
