How to Replace Kitchen Cabinet Doors

Replacing the kitchen cabinet doors is a very simple task, and the results can transform your old kitchen into a sleek and stylish new kitchen. There are also cost benefits and we all like to save money. 

So what will you need?
  •  New cabinet doors 
  •  Screwdriver 
  •  Drill 
  •  Knobs or handles 

Lets get started with replacing the kitchen cabinet doors: 

1. Remove the old door by unscrewing them from the hinges. The easiest way is to leave the hinges attached to the cabinet boxes. 
2. Attach a new door to the hinges already installed on the cabinet. Hold the door up to the hinges and make a mark where the screws go into the hinges. Pre-drill the holes for the screws so you don't split the wood on your new cabinet door. This will also make it easier to screw the door right onto the hinges. Do not tighten the screws all the way. Adjust the door to make sure it is level by adjusting the hinge. Tighten the screws. 
3. Place the knobs or handles where you want them on the new door and make a mark. Measure up from the bottom of the cabinet and in from the side to that mark. Mark each cabinet with those measurements so that all the knobs or handles will be in the same place on each door.  4. Pre-drill the holes for the screws and attach the knobs or handles. That's it you are done.
