When kitchen cabinet doors are less than 1-1/2" from the ceiling, there is not enough clearance to install ceiling tile tracks. The only installation method which will allow the doors to open is the cement method, using ceiling tile adhesive.
Making sure the existing ceiling is level, follow the directions from the cement manufacturer to prepare the surface and apply and place the cement.
Tip 36: Installing tile where kitchen cabinet doors are close to the ceiling
Tip 37: Removing dirt from tile and panel surfaces
Pencil marks, metal marks, smudges or dirt may be removed from a tile and panel surface with an art gum eraser.
