Add a finishing touch to your cabinets with cabinet screw covers

Learn about the varying types of cabinet screw covers you can use to give your cabinets a finishing touch, or maybe you just need to some replacement screw covers to match the existing ones.

Plastic Caps

  • Available in various colors to match a cabinets finish.
  • The plastic caps create a hump that can put dinnerware, glasses, etc. off-balance when installed on shelf bottoms.
  • The plastic stems are short and won’t securely press into a screw head if countersunk too deep.

Veeneer Covers

  • Available in various colors to match a cabinets finish.
  • Self-adhesive back
  • Near flush effect that doesn’t create a protrusion like plastic caps and wood plugs

Wood Buttons or Wood Plugs

I’m not familiar with using wood buttons in kitchen or bath cabinet applications. However, you may find wood buttons used for stairs, furniture and the types of cabinets used as furniture.

  • Can be stained or painted to match.
  • Available in different wood species.

Additional Installation Information

  • If the existing screws were not countersunk deep enough for the cabinet screw caps to fit properly, you can try to drive the screw deeper with a hand screwdriver or power driver.
  • If the above won’t work, the screw will need to be removed, and the countersunk re-done. Tools needed will be a power drill and countersink. Countersink single bits and complete kits can be found at any home improvement store in one brand or another. An example product to look for is Montana Brand countersink.

Where to Find

The plastic cabinet screw caps can be found at many home improvement or hardware stores, but the veneer caps, wood buttons, and plastic caps can all be found at woodworking stores like Rockler Woodworking and Hardware or Woodcraft.
