At Laurysen, we know that every kitchen and bathroom is different, and we have to make our cabinets and drawers ready to adapt to the real world conditions of your home. Most rooms aren’t perfectly square, plus most homes shift slightly over time.
That’s why we make our cabinets and doors fully adjustable. All you need is a Phillips screwdriver (the kind with the ‘X’).
Here’s our own Corey Laurysen with instructions on how to make any adjustments you may need:
Adjusting Your Cabinets
The design of the cabinet hinge and back plate allows for independent adjustments in three dimensions. You may want to check out the video above to see the movement so you understand.
- The front screw controls the side to side adjustment.
- The back screw controls the depth (in and out) adjustment.
- The centre screw controls the height adjustment.
The good thing about these adjustments is that you can’t go wrong. If you make an adjustment and find it doesn’t work when you try to close the cabinet door, you can just try it the other way. As long as you don’t try to force anything to close, you should be OK.
Adjusting Your Drawers
The Drawer box offer 2 dimensional adjustment
- Height adjustment is controlled by loosening screw #2 (the top one) slightly to allow the panel to move. Adjust the height using screw #1 (on the bottom) to the required position. Once you’ve got it positioned correctly, tighten both screws to hold it in place.
- Side adjustment is controlled by loosening screw #2 slightly, adjusting the front to the required position and then tighten screw #2 again.
- Angle correction is done by loosening either the top screw or the bottom screw according to your needs – both will affect the angle. You can also push an angle correction wedge in between, tighten screw #2 and trim off the wedge. This is called “shimming” into place.
We’ve designed our adjustment screws to be usable by almost anyone. If you’re not confident about your home handy skills yourself, you may want to get a friend to help. Don’t forget to buy them a coffee to say thank you!
