When it comes to installing hardware there are a couple things to keep in mind. You need to know if you are going to use knobs, pulls or both. And where you plan to place your hardware on each of your cabinets. We are going to break down all the tips on installing hardware including what you need to know, look for and have ready to make your hardware installation run as smoothly as possible!
Find the size of the pull by measuring from the center of the screw to the center of the screw. That total distance is the size of your hardware.
Use a hardware template as it provides less room for error. Find the center and split the difference of the distance of the hardware from the center. Then you can drill in your pilot holes. If your cabinets are thicker you may need a longer drill bit to make sure the hole goes all the way through.
