Learning how to adjust kitchen cabinet doors can seem complicated to get right, but it doesn’t need to be. In fact, it’s one of the easiest fixes you can make in your home and as it can be frustrating when they become loose, misaligned or don’t close properly this should be your go to guide.
With this step-by-step guide, you’ll learn how to hang and adjust kitchen cabinet doors for a perfect fit.
To ensure that your doors look straight and close properly you’ll need to make minor adjustments to the adjustable screws.
The aim is to have a consistent gap around the doors, for both doors to sit at the same height and to not be standing too proud of the cabinets.
There are three main adjustments that can be made to achieve this;
Screws A: If your door is scuffing under the worktop, or the doors are not at the same height, then loosen and adjust these screws for up and down movement.
Screw B: Turn the screw anti-clockwise to move the door further right and turn the screw clockwise to move the door left. Try this if your door is overlapping and won’t close.
Screw C: Adjust this screw closer or further away from the cabinet: clockwise for closer and anticlockwise for further away.
Once you adjust one of the screws you may find it creates a slight misalignment somewhere else — this is normal; make really small adjustments until you find the perfect fit.
Your hinges might come with a small cover plate that is designed to clip over the screws to improve the appearance of the hinge. Once you’re happy with how the door sits, then it’s time to clip on the cover plate.
Hope this helps with one of life’s small niggles!
