Remove carpet before cabinet install?

Page 2 of 2  

Newbie suggestion:
cut away most of the carpet and raise the builtins with plywood blocks. Then when the carpet is replaced it can be tucked under the builtins.

Sigh. Figure out where the cabinets will go. Put some carpet tacks or better yet, some staples outside that dimension. Cut the carpet out. Cut the tack strip out. Put in your cabinets. The carpet stays in place and you don't have the problems with rotting carpet and wobbly cabinets as others have discussed. When the time comes to replace the carpet, it will not be a big deal for the carpet guys to pull the staples and put in new tack strip. It'll be OK.     yours curmugeonly,     jo4hn
