Measuring Made Easy
What You Need:Pen/Pencil
Camera (or smartphone)
A Quick Note:
Draw an outline of your kitchen layout, or shape of the room, marking where the walls are.
Mark where any windows or doorways are in your kitchen and label them.
Mark your cabinet layout. This could be your current layout, or if you’re looking to change, your desired cabinet layout.
Mark where appliances are/will be and label them.
Now you can take your measuring tape and measure the following.
* Important Note: measurements should be as precise as possible.
Measure windows and doorways from outer trim to outer trim (instead of just the window opening) and label the measurements.
Measure walls to outer trims of windows/doors, or wall to wall if there are no other wall openings.
Measure floor to ceiling.
In your sketch, mark whether an area has upper cabinets or lower cabinets (or both).
Measure the depth of your counter from edge to wall (this will help us with knowing which cabinets are best).
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.
