Embarking on a kitchen renovation can be exhilarating yet daunting, especially when it comes to installing modern kitchen cabinets. These are not just functional storage spaces but are pivotal in defining the style and ambiance of your kitchen. Eugene Bershadsky, a seasoned Senior Designer and Sales Manager at Impressions Kitchens USA with over 12 years of experience, shares his insights to help you seamlessly integrate modern cabinets into your kitchen.


Understanding Modern Cabinet Styles for Kitchens


Choosing the right cabinet style is the cornerstone of creating a contemporary kitchen. “Modern kitchen cabinets are all about simplicity and functionality, blending form with function,” explains Bershadsky. These cabinets often boast sleek lines, minimalist designs, and a lack of ornate details. They may incorporate innovative materials such as high-gloss finishes, metal, glass, or wood composites to give your kitchen a clean and spacious look.


Preparation Steps for Modern Kitchen Cabinet Installation


Proper preparation is key to a successful installation. Begin by clearing the kitchen space and taking precise measurements. “Accurate measurements are critical because they affect every other aspect of installation, from fitting the cabinets to positioning appliances and ensuring that everything aligns perfectly,” says Bershadsky.


Tools and Materials Needed


To prepare for the installation, assemble the necessary tools and materials. You’ll need:

  • A high-quality level and measuring tape for accurate placement
  • A power drill, screws, and wall brackets for securing cabinets
  • Shims for leveling
  • Your chosen cabinets, door fronts, and hardware


“Having the right tools at the outset can make the difference between a frustrating project and a smooth installation,” Bershadsky advises.


Step-by-Step Guide to Installing Your Cabinets


  1. Install Upper Cabinets First: It’s easier to handle the upper cabinets without the lower ones in the way. “Ensure each cabinet is perfectly level and securely anchored to wall studs,” notes Bershadsky. This is crucial for the stability of your cabinets.


  1. Move to the Lower Cabinets: Align these with the upper cabinets and ensure they are level and plumb. This step is essential for the correct installation of countertops.


  1. Attach Doors and Hardware: Using a template can help guarantee that handles and knobs are placed consistently. “This is where your kitchen starts to really come together aesthetically,” Bershadsky points out.


  1. Add Finishing Touches: For custom modern kitchen cabinets, you may have additional decorative panels or trim to install at this stage.


Professional Cabinet Installation


While DIY projects can be rewarding, the precision required for installing modern kitchen cabinets often necessitates professional help. “Professional installation can prevent costly mistakes and help achieve a polished look,” Bershadsky recommends.


Cost Considerations


The cost to install kitchen cabinets can vary widely. Factors include the size of your kitchen, the style of cabinets, and whether you choose DIY or professional installation. Modern kitchen cabinetry prices also differ based on material choices and customization.
