In this video I show how to install door hardware on a kitchen cabinet. The cabinets and doors in this video are from IKEA but he procedure works for installing door hardware is the same on any brand of door as well. I am using the IKEA FIXA Drill template to lay out my drill holes to install the door handles. The Drill Template is available on Amazon: http://amzn.to/2gHgz5p
Using a jig or template to lay out the drill holes in your kitchen will speed up your hardware installation and reduce the possibility of mistakes.
When selecting a drill bit for the handle installation you need to have a bit that is just slightly larger than the screws you will be using. You do not want to use a drill bit that is bigger than the door hardware you are installing or else you will see the drill hole poking out around the edges of the handles.
A note on using more expensive door hardware… If you are using like me, the cheapest drawer fronts from IKEA, you could spend just a little more money on the hardware, don’t get the cheapest. You’ll find that nicer hardware can elevate the look of the whole kitchen.
