How to fit kitchen door knobs

Kitchen cabinet door knobs contribute to a home’s decor. Many times, kitchen cabinets are left without knobs. Fitting them with knobs not only make it easier to open them, but add to the style of the cabinet. There are many knobs to choose from. Once you find the knobs you want, installing them is easy and only takes a few minutes.

Mark the location

- Purchase the knobs you want. You can purchase knobs at home supply stores. They come in an array of styles. You will want to pick out knobs which match your kitchen well. Most knobs will be sold with the screws which are needed to screw them into the door. The only other thing you will need is a drill to screw the knobs in. - Measure and pinpoint the location on the door where you want the knob. - Place the knobs approximately one-inch from the edge of the door. The knobs should be centered on frame boards if the cabinet doors are framed. Along the edge, the knobs can be placed in the center of the door, or can be place below center, up to three inches from the bottom on high cabinets, and above center, up to three inches from the top edge on low cabinets. The knobs should be placed where they can be comfortably reached by most people. - Use a pencil or marker and place a dot on the cabinet door where the knob will be placed.

Drill a hole

Use a drill and drill a hole at each mark you placed. Use a drill bit within the same diameter as the screws which came with the knobs.

Screw the knobs on the doors

- Screw the knobs on the doors. - Centre the knob on the hole on the front of the door, and push the screw through the back of the door, and then tighten the screw using a screwdriver. A jig can be used to ensure each knob is consistently placed on the doors. A jig is a woodworking tool which is a plywood sleep having a hole drilled through it to fit over the cabinet doors. This serves as a master guide for drilling the holes in the doors.
