“Are your kitchen cabinet door handles easy to fit?” Question of the Week 14/05/2017
“Are your kitchen cabinet door handles easy to fit?”
This week, our question has been sent in by Mrs. Robertson in Gillingham, Dorset – she would like to know more about the handles we sell alongside our cabinetry.
“I’ve picked out my kitchen units to order from you and I’d like to know if your kitchen cabinet door handles are easy to fit?”
Hello Mrs. Robertson,
Thank you for getting in touch with us – we are pleased to hear you have made the decision to purchase your kitchen cabinets from us, and hope that when they arrive you love them as much as we do.
Our kitchen cabinet door handles are incredibly simple to fit. Whichever style you select, only one or two holes will need to be drilled to accommodate the fixtures.
We would recommend using a metal ruler to measure the position of the holes, before marking with a pencil to provide you with a guide on the front of the door. When drilling, we would advise using a 2mm drill bit initially when drilling through the front of the door. To make the hole large enough to accommodate your fixings, a 4mm or 5mm drill bit can then be used to go through from the back of the door. Drilling twice, once from each side, will ensure the hole is clean and accurate whilst avoiding any unnecessary damage to the solid wood door.
Your kitchen cabinet door handles can be fitted once the units are in place. It is important to use screws that are the right size for your handle, as incorrectly sized screws can mean they will not be secure.
More detailed information about fitting cabinet handles and knobs can be found in our dedicated information guide: ‘How to Choose and Install Handles & Knobs in Oak Kitchens’.
We hope this provides you with all the information you need to feel confident in fitting your kitchen cabinet door handles, but if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us again.
