Q: Do I need to purchase finished pieces for the sides of the cabinets?
A: The Glazed Mocha Cream line is the only one that requires finished panels, purchased separately, to be attached to the exposed sides of the cabinet. All other lines are finished the same color inside and out. Many of the lines have decorative end panels available but they are not necessary. They dress the cabinets up!
Q: How do I secure an island cabinet?
A: You pre-drill and countersink holes about an inch off the floor, along the back and sides of the cabinet and screw it to the floor. You then install a molding to cover the screws. You can also drill through the floor of the cabinet and use long lag screws to secure the cabinet if you would rather not use molding around the base of the island. Remember that overhanging counters can cause leverage on the cabinet, so secure the island well and make sure the countertop is also well secured with screws and liquid nails where the countertop contacts the cabinet.
Q: What assembly method will I get?
A: Assembly Methods:
The assembly method varies per cabinet style. Please look for this info on the cabinet line description page on the specific style you are interested in.
Q: What kind of shelves will I get?
A: The wall cabinets have adjustable shelves and the base cabinets have a stationary half shelf.
Q: When I order a glass door for an RTA cabinet, do I still get the original door?
A: Only in some cases. Many RTA cabinets are pre-packaged with the original, matching door. Rather than unpack the original door, we simply send you the glass door as a separate item as it was ordered. However, some styles have the option to order a cabinet with the glass door included. If it’s ordered as one item only the glass door is included.
Q. Are the sides of the cabinets flush?
A. There is a recess on the side panel, called a scribe (an extension of the end stile past the side panel) that allows for proper alignment adjustments in the case of walls that are not perfectly square and plumb. Finished end panels can be added to exposed sides if desired but all our cabinets have finished sides except the Glazed Mocha Cream and the Onyx Accent Cabinets.
