Follow These Steps:
Measuring Your Kitchen:
Always start at the corner and work your way out to an opening, when measuring always try to imagine yourself as if you are looking down at the room from the ceiling.
Measure the whole room wall to wall, indicate all breaks in walls (windows, doors, openings) by measuring from the corner to the outside edge of the molding or opening. Mark where the wall end is and where the cabinets will be exposed. Don’t forget to indicate any appliances and exactly where they go, openings for air vents, offsets, etc.
From the corner, measure to center line of plumbing, or if the plumbing is under a window, measure to the center line of the window, because the plumbing might not be centered, also don’t forget to mark any ducting and outlets. Remember, plumbing and outlets can be moved to accommodate a design.
Measure the height of the room, with your plans submit any appliance specifications that you may have, it will make sure that the cabinets built will fit, guaranteed.
Measuring your bathroom:
Measure the width of the available space. Take into account the room necessary for cabinet doors and drawers to open. Consider door clearance and toilet location when designing your bath. Cabinet end should be 16″ to the center of the toilet, otherwise it might be too cramped. Again measure to the center of the plumbing and mark any outlets that might be there.
Bathroom vanities are usually 21″ deep, make sure it will work in your available space. If your space is limited, we can make 18″ deep bath vanities. Confirm that a 32″ Height vanity will work in your available space. Our vanities can be up to any height but standard is 32″.
