In the event that your drawers need an adjustment, there are five separate methods that affect how the drawer/drawer front sits in the cabinet. The adjustments are the same regardless of your particular Face Frame treatment (Square Inset, Beaded Inset, Frameless, etc)
A little drawer terminology…we use a Blum drawer slide system, and there are two main components: the drawer runner (the metal sliding component) and the locking mechanism (with large orange tabs). Three out of the five adjustments can be done via the locking mechanism.
Let’s take a look at the locking mechanism, from the underside of a typical drawer:
Now that we know where they are, how do we adjust? Let’s start with the most common: Height Adjustment
Height adjustment is a simple procedure. No tools are needed, and the drawer does not need to be removed.
Side-to-side adjustment will not require any tools. The drawer does not need to be removed.
Depth adjustment will require the use of a Phillips screwdriver. The drawer does not need to be removed.
This adjustment isn’t usually needed, but we present it here because it is available.
No tools are necessary, but removal of the drawer will make things easier.
In the unusual event that your drawer face is tilted up (or down) the adjustment is at the rear of the runners.
No tools are necessary, but the drawer will have to be removed to get to the adjustment on the runners
