Shim Large Bows Most of the time you can shim the cabinets as you go, but if there's an extreme bow in the wall (more than 3/8 in.), shim it out before you hang the cabinet. If you don't, you may accidentally pull the back off the cabinet while fastening it into place.
Start With the Upper Cabinets It's easier to hang the uppers when you're not hanging way over the base cabinets. Rest the uppers on a ledger board—it'll ensure a nice, straight alignment and eliminate the frustration of holding the cabinets in place while screwing them to the wall.
Use Good Screws Many top cabinet makers prefer GRK's R4 self-countersinking screw. You'll pay accordingly, but why scrimp on screws when you're spending thousands of dollars on cabinets?
Use a Block of Wood for Scribing Find the largest distance between the outside of the cabinet and the wall. Take that measurement and make a pencil mark on your filler strip (measure over right to left in this case).
Remove Cabinet Doors and Drawers Removing shelves, doors and drawers makes installation easier and prevents damage. Mark the location of the doors on painter's tape, and make a pencil mark at the top of the hinges so you have a good starting point when you reinstall them.
