Most manufacturers employ a service void of approximately 50mm at the back of base units and this is essential not only for plumbing and electrical services but also for scribing to the walls if necessary. To ensure that no gaps are visible where the last unit meets the wall you may need to scribe the cabinet. To do this, level the cabinet and clamp it to the adjacent one leaving it 30mm proud of the front edge, clamp the units together, set the compass to 30mm between pencil and point and run the point of the compass down the wall keeping it parallel with the pencil point. The pencil line left on the carcass will act as a guide for cutting with a jigsaw. After cutting, fit the cabinet as described above. This will leave a perfect finish to the wall.
Kitchen remodeling often adds value to a house and is a great idea if you have plans of selling your house or giving it a new look. With kitchen refacing, you can achieve the appearance of freshness without unnecessary expense and labor. When doing refacing, it is a good idea to modify your kitchen lights.
Speaking as a former installer my personal choice for strength and longevity would be to choose a carcass of at least 18mm construction with a back of at least 9mm board thickness and metal sided soft close drawer boxes again with a solid base of at least 15mm board. Rigid units will save on installation time but otherwise carry no major advantage over flat pack units.
Remove one screw from each of the hinge back plates and rotate back plate to expose area behind. Using a 5mm wood bit, drill part way through the first carcass behind the hinge back plate and fix the two together with a cordless screwdriver using 30mm screws for 18mm units and for 25mm screws for 15mm units. Reposition back plate and fix. This will serve to conceal the fixing. If however, both units are connecting on the closing side of the doors - use the same procedure and cap the screws.
Full 5/8" back boards are great because they stiffen the box and allow for easier mounting of the cabinet onto the wall. Moreover, these full back boards help to prevent racking or twisting which may sometimes occur while mounting the cabinet onto a flawed wall.
A full carcass is commonly known as a kitchen cabinet box. Base kitchen cabinet boxes are built with two sides known as gable ends, a bottom and a back. Upper cabinets normally have two gable ends, a top, bottom and a back board. Base cabinet boxes do not require a top board because the countertop normally covers that opening.
