  •  

    Start with a rough sketch to shape the room you are buying cabinets for. Be sure to have a line for each wall, door, and window. (Our Measuring Guide Form has a graph sheet for your convenience)

  •  

    After you have your measuring tape ready, your first measurement should be from the floor to the ceiling to determine the maximum cabinet height that can be used.

  •  

    Next you’ll need to measure every section of your walls and record on the drawing. (A section is considered to be from a corner to a door way or window trim or opening.)

  •  

    Once the wall sections are recorded, measure each door and window from outside edge to outside edge of casing or trim. Remember to Indicate on your sketch how each door swings.

  •  

    The sink’s precise location along with other water and gas lines need to be marked on the drawing by marking where the CENTER of these, not edges.

  •  

    Be sure to mark the locations and dimensions of all the appliances will go. (You will need the Width, Height, and Depth of each).

  •  

    To make sure your cabinets will fit your space, always DOUBLE CHECK YOUR WORK! You can add up all the dimensions of the wall sections,windows, and appliances to be sure it is equal to the total wall measurements. Re-measure where needed!
