Hanging a corner medicine cabinet is a great way to add a storage without space restrictions; moreover, corner cabinets are both practical and aesthetically pleasing. They are easy to hang when you follow these steps.

Step 1 - Getting Ready

Measure the height and width of your corner medicine cabinet. Note the measurements. Next decide where to place the cabinet. Use the carpenter’s level to mark the lowest edge of the cabinet on the wall. Level marking make the job much easier.

Step 2 - Locating and Using the Studs

Use a stud finder to locate the studs. If you do not have a stud finder, use a hammer to lightly tap the wall and locate the studs. Once you have located the studs, install the 2.5-inch inch screws in line with the cabinet’s bottom markings. Use the drill to install the screws.

Step 3 - Placing the Corner Medicine Cabinet

Once you have installed the screws, rest the corner cabinet on them. Ensure that it is flat against the wall. If the cabinet is moving or rocking, secure it with shims.

Step 4 - Securing the Cabinet

Locate the nailing strip inside the cabinet and drive more 2.5-inch screws into the studs. Use 2 screws per stud.

This is the easiest, safest, and most secure way to hang a corner medicine cabinet. Enlist a friend to help if you need it.
