What is a Wall Cabinet

Wall cabinets are the kitchen cabinets that are installed above the countertops. As opposed to base cabinets--which are installed on the floor--wall cabinets are suspended in air by being mounted to the wall. Wall cabinets are installed by first attaching a straight 1x4 at the bottom level of your cabinets to provide support during installation. You then begin your installation with the corner cabinet, setting the cabinet next to it with clamps to keep it even as you install the rest throughout the kitchen. It's also important to install wall cabinets before installing base cabinets so that you have enough room to work during project.
