When cold weather rolls around every year,I remember my cabinets are on a wall in the kitchen that is on an outside wall of house. How can I warm up the interior? Thank you for any advice.

    you night try caulking the inside of the cabinets to seal any cracked. To insulate you don’t want any thing thick to take away space. How about craft foam core sheets. Cut to fit and install with hot Glue.

    If your cabinets get cold from the wall then i would check if the wall is insulated. You may need to remove the cabinets, open up the wall down to the studs, add insulation. Put on new drywall prime, paint, and reinstall the cabinets.

    That's probably what I will have to do. .I have the same problem. But I live in a mobile home. .pipes freeze, toilet freezes its so much fun. .but I did notice that my dishwasher and stove have lots of cold air coming from them. .thinking not enough insulation around my dishwasher and alot of holes behind my stove. .so you might check there. .alot easier than taking down walls. .Ps.also the trim pieces of the cupboard if you remove that you could find a surprise. .like its empty. .Good Luck

    If this is an RV or mobile, you might be able to cut some pieces of rigid foam insulation, I would get the kind with the silver on the back, cut a piece to fit inside each cabinent, the silver side goes to the back.
    If its a home, I would get blow in insulation, cut holes in outside wall and blow it in.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SvpGNoi6akc
