Draw a rough outline of your kitchen and note any doors and windows. Do not measure existing cabinets as those will change. We are looking for room dimensions.
NOTE: For doorways with doors, draw the doorway according to which way the door swings.
Draw in any obstructions, such as radiators, pipes, sink plumbing, etc., that you either cannot move or do not want to move.
Now it’s time to get out the tape measure. Measure all the openings, from outside edge to outside edge.
Note: When measuring doors and windows the trim is considered part of the door or window.
Measure the ceiling height and write it in the center of your drawing. Sometimes, especially with older homes, it is a good idea to take measurements in a few different areas of the kitchen. Ceiling heights, even in the same room, can sometimes vary by as much as a few inches.
Snap a clear photo of your sketch as well as photos the existing space from a few angles looking into the room and each wall and email them to us.
Gather appliance specs and send them over to us so we can be sure to customize your cabinetry around them.
