Locate wall studs with a drill

If you’re not confident about the position of the wall studs you can use a small drill bit and drill a small hole to see if you can locate the timber behind. Because your cabinets or splash back will cover this whole area up you won’t see these holes when your cabinetry is in place.

Step by Step Instructions

1 Mark the position of the studs and base of the cabinet
2 Position the cabinet and screw it to the wall
  • Step 1. Mark the position of the studs and base of the cabinet

    If the stud positions aren’t already clearly marked, use a stud finder to mark their position. Decide how high you want the cabinet on the wall. Then use your spirit level to mark a line across where the base of the cabinet will sit.

  • Step 2. Position the cabinet and screw it to the wall

    Line the stands up with your line on the wall and position the cabinet on top.  Mark the stud positions inside the cabinet. Then pre-drill through the cabinet into the stud. Secure the cabinet in place with screws.
