How to Measure Your Kitchen

  • Start with the overall kitchen shape (square, rectangle). Next draw in all the appropriate obstacles such as doors, windows, or structural elements that will not be moved.
  • Start your Measurements working out from the corner, work one wall at a time. Most people find it easiest to start with the longest measurement on the wall, notate it, and then measure the distance from the corner to the obstruction such as a window, notate it, and then measure the obstruction and mark that down.
  • We want the measurements to be as accurate as possible, rounding to the nearest quarter inch, is perfectly acceptable.  We will take a final measurement prior to the final order.
  • Mark the location (or desired location if moving) of your kitchen components, such as the sink, oven and or cooktop, refrigerator, and any other significant appliances.
  • Include the height of your ceiling with your measurements.  This is critical in determining what size upper cabinets will be best for your space.
  • Take pictures!  Pictures are not only worth a thousand words but can also help us get a better feel for the space.
  • Note on the drawing where you enter the kitchen from with groceries
