Then basically all you do is place them inside your cabinet door where you would like them to stay and drill the screw into the cabinet side wall through the opening on the damper. We chose to place them right under the bottom hinge for easier accessibility in case we need to adjust at a later time.

We were so psyched after we got all the doors done! I know, it’s the little things.

You can even add these cabinet dampers to your drawers so they too will shut quietly. 

Trust me, this is quick, super easy, and there is hardly anything to clean up in the end, plus it is super affordable! Now we enjoy our quiet kitchen, which is only the beginning of our upcoming kitchen transformation. If you didn’t know these existed, now you do, so go get them. You’ll be glad you did!
