How To Measure

A Quick Note:  Before we get started, know that nothing needs to be precise or exact. This is intended to be a basic, quick sketch of your kitchen for our designers to use. Using the combination of measurements and photos, they will have enough information to create a personalized rendering of what your new cabinets would look like in your kitchen.

Getting Started:

1️⃣ Draw an outline of your kitchen layout, or shape of the room, marking where the walls are.

2️⃣ Mark where any windows or doorways are in your kitchen and label them.

3️⃣ Mark your cabinet layout. This could be your current layout, or if you’re looking to change, your desired cabinet layout.

4️⃣ Mark where appliances are/will be and label them.

5️⃣ Now you can take your measuring tape and measure the following. *Note: measurements don’t have to be precise to the 1/10th inch, you can round to the nearest number

    a. Measure windows and doorways from outer trim to outer trim (instead of just the window opening) and label the measurements.

    b. Measure walls to outer trims of windows/doors, or wall to wall if there are no other wall openings.

    c. Measure floor to ceiling.

6️⃣ In your sketch, mark whether an area has upper cabinets or lower cabinets (or both).

7️⃣ Measure the depth of your counter from edge to wall (this will help us with knowing which cabinets are best).

8️⃣ Take pictures of your current layout. We recommend taking a couple from different angles in the room to help our designers see how everything fits together in conjunction with your measurements.
