Bringing in dimensions of your kitchen is good for getting an initial price
for cabinetry and countertops. Certainly we would verify all dimensions
before ordering but bringing in the measurements speeds up the process.
Follow these simple guidelines.
First, remember that when we start to install your kitchen cabinetry, the
room will be empty, so that is how you should approach taking the
measurements, like the room is empty. Ignore any existing cabinets,
countertops, sinks, etc. All measurements should be in inches. What
you are measuring is the available wall space and the obstacles
like doors, windows, pipes, etc. Try to measure exactly. Cabinets get
installed from the corners outward so measure from the corner where the
two walls meet, to the closest edge of the first obstruction, say a window
(Dim A) and then to the farthest edge of the obstruction (Dim B) and
then to the next obstruction like a door or wall (Dim C). Having
dimensions to each side of a window allows you to find the center of the
window so you can center the sink base cabinet. A measurement from
the floor to the lowest and highest points on the window trim can be
helpful. Take measurements for each wall. Measure from the floor to
the ceiling to determine what size wall and tall cabinets will work.
Measure to any pipes (besides the ones for the sink), electrical switches,
outlets in odd locations, baseboard heat or floor ducts, etc. Overall room
measurements help in calculating walkway clearances around islands,
peninsulas, etc. Note if you have preferences or ideas about specific
locations for appliances or other features. Refer to the "Needed Info."
