They’ve been nice and white for a few weeks now and I am still blown away with how much brighter and more up to date the whole room looks.

1) Buy longer screws or 2) countersink the screw heads. I didn't have a countersink drill bit, so I drilled a shallow hole slightly wider than the screw head with a large bit and then went back and drilled a second smaller hole all the way through the door.

Choosing where to install the cup pulls was easy (dead center of the drawers) and the knobs were easy too, but determining where I wanted to put the upper pulls was tougher.
Nothign a little double sided tape can't remedy: I also had the problem that the screws provided with the hardware weren't long enough to go through the thick cabinet doors, so I had two options.
