Step 2 Strategy for Adjusting Door and Drawer Reveals

Step 2 Strategy for Adjusting Door and Drawer Reveals

When adjusting the faces of a long cabinet run , the task can appear a bit confusing , especially since an adjustment to one area can require adjustment to another . Just jumping in without a plan can result in excessive rework . However , utilizing a few simple guidelines will make adjusting door and drawer reveals more manageable .
2.1 Examine the entire cabinet run and identify the necessary adjustments before proceeding . Divide the run into sections and look for the worst conditions . Identify areas that will and will not require adjustment . Identify any fixed fascia parts such as Sink and Cooktop Cabinet false drawers .
2.2 Begin making adjustment at the middle of a cabinet run , not either end .
Adjustments made on one door may require adjustment to adjacent fascia . If this is done across a cabinet run from one side to the other , small errors can be duplicated and even multiplied as an adjustment is carried across the run .
Often this will cause the required adjustment at the end of the run to exceed a hinge or a bracket ’ s capacity for adjustment , which will require excess work to redo previous adjustments .
If you begin in the middle of a long cabinet run and work out to each end , these potential errors are not given the opportunity to duplicate as often , minimizing the likelihood of excess work .
2.3 Make the height adjustments first . For wall cabinets , center the hinge side of the door within the height of the cabinet box face . For base cabinets , identify any fixed fascia such as the sink or cooktop false drawer and confirm that it is mounted square .
If there are no fixed fascia , confirm that the top drawer face in the center section of the cabinet run is level . Adjust the height or brackets of any doors or drawers below this area to create an even reveal of 1 / 8 ” to 3 / 16 ” between them .
If there are doors below this first drawer , utilize the up-and-down adjustment of the hinges to adjust the height . Keep in mind that the side-to-side hinge adjustment can give the impression that the height of a door is changing when the top and bottom hinges are adjusted in opposite directions . This is not a change in height . Make height adjustments at the hinge side of a door using the up-and-down adjustment on the hinge plates before adjusting in other directions .
2.4 Follow with side to side adjustments . Once the height is established for a door or drawer face , make side-to-side adjustments to even the reveals between them .
2.5 Finish with adjusting the doors to close flat . Make in-and-out adjustment to compensate for slight racking in the cabinet or warpage in the door allowing the door to close flat at the strike .
Complete the adjustments for one section before moving onto the next .
