How to attach the countertop to the cabinet, the table in the kitchen with your own hands. When buying a kitchen in a store, you will surely come across the moment of installation, or rather, who will do it. There are two options - employees from the construction market where the purchase was made, or on their own. And if you recall the famous saying "if you want to do well, do it yourself", it turns out that it is better to take the initiative into your own hands.
This article will help you solve the problem of attaching a countertop to a kitchen set.
Tools and devices
In assembly work and direct installation of cabinets on There is nothing complicated in the kitchen, since for each product there is a detailed instruction, where everything will be described very simply. But before you start work, you should select all the necessary tools with which the work will be performed.
The last tool is the most important, as without it it will not be possible to complete the assembly and general installation of the kitchen set.
This is an additional section that should be studied before starting work, as in It lists all possible additional materials that may be required when installing the headset in the kitchen.
They are required for fixing two pedestals together, and this is many times more reliable than simple self-tapping screws.
Please note, that the cost of the materials described above will vary within 6 rubles for 1 piece, excluding the sealant. For this reason, the savings will be meaningless and functionality will be lost.
Before fixing the countertop to the cabinet or table, you should first install the kitchen cabinets. Some of the specialists make cabinets first from above, and then from below, and some vice versa. But this is purely a matter of taste, so you should not be guided by someone.
The main thing is to start doing something.
The instruction is as follows:
Good advice! If you start with the lower cabinets, then the worktop should be installed after the upper cabinets have been hung.
This way you can protect yourself from defects and accidental deformations.
Work is performed in the following order:
But you can attach the cabinet as it is more convenient for you, since you will use the kitchen and everything should fit your height. The only thing really worth paying attention to is the cabinet above the hob / stove - too high temperatures will negatively affect the condition. But with regards to the headset, let's talk about the material of manufacture and how to attach the tabletop.
Naturally, the selection of material for the countertop is not very diverse, but even 3 simple options can make you think and even puzzle.
What is plastic? This is paper folded in several layers and glued together. The thickness of such a product will rarely be more than 0. 1 cm, since 0. 06 cm is most often used for the kitchen.
Note! If you decide to buy a plastic table, then be extremely careful, as there are surfaces with a thickness of 0.
03 cm, which is the most "delicate", fragile.
The base of the plastic countertop is a standard chipboard, which is short-lived and very cheap. But this was the case a few years ago, and at the moment, buyers are delighted with moisture-resistant MDF and chipboard. They are a little more expensive than the first option, but very reliable and it is a pleasure to use them in everyday life.
Now we propose to consider how to fix the countertop in the kitchen in more detail.
Self-tapping screws should be screwed in 4 pieces for each pedestal - two should be located on the front tie, and two more on the back.
Please note, that if the base of your headset in the kitchen is leveled, and the countertop bends, it should be pressed down with force and the screws tightened. Particleboard products are easy to bend due to improper storage or ambient temperature.
In order to fix the kitchen countertop to the cabinet, you will need to contact the furniture organization and invite a professional measurer, since acrylic does not stick with your own hands at home.
After that, the master will make a project on which the kitchen set and the location of the sink / electrical appliances will be drawn. It will also be noted in which places the wooden blocks will be located, through which the fasteners will be carried out.
Please note, that if your kitchen has the shape of the letter "L", then the installation of the countertop should be ordered from the organization. This is due to the fact that you will need to grind and glue the surface.
This requires the following tools:
The third and last species remained.
The disadvantages include high cost and weight, but all this is more than offset by the positive aspects.
This section is similar to what was indicated in the instructions for installing an acrylic tabletop, since the manufacturing technology of the materials is very similar. For this reason, if you have an indirect kitchen, you need to turn to craftsmen who are able to beautifully and efficiently glue surfaces.
Very often, the countertop in the kitchen is often used in the form of a bar counter, where you can have breakfast and dinner.
This requires a special type of fastening, which will make it possible to securely fix the rack:
Please note, that if the width of the table is not more than 40 cm, then one support leg will be enough, and if more than 40 cm, then it is better to take 2 sets.
Fastening the countertop in the kitchen as a bar counter is performed as follows:
And now it will not be superfluous to find out what other features of the workflow are.
Although it may seem easy to install a countertop, you should take it so lightly.
There are certain recommendations and features of fasteners:
1-0. 2 cm and mark the center of the corner. After that, it should be fixed with a self-tapping screw, and 4 corners will be enough for each meter.
Try not to leave the structure as it is when the wooden countertop sags.
These are the main points to remember if you are planning to fix the tabletop to the cabinet yourself.
Now you can definitely assemble the headset with your own hands and even fix it. If you want to see the whole process and make sure that you are doing the work correctly, we suggest watching a video tutorial.
