Kitchen Measurement Step by Step Guide

Kitchen measurement guide by KitchenDEV is a handy step-by-step guide that will help you to accurately measure your kitchen space when planning to buy kitchen cabinets and design a kitchen.

You will need a tape measure, a pen, and a paper, preferably graph paper. Graph paper is printed with fine lines that can help you as guides while noting down your kitchen measurements and planning a kitchen.

1. Step: Draw an Outline

Measure and draw in all obstructions like sink plumbing, ceiling soffits, refrigerator, and any other obstructions that can’t be moved.

Don’t include current kitchen cabinetry or any other elements that won’t be kept. Make the measurements in inches.

Make sure to measure clockwise, recording the length of each wall. Mark windows, doors, and walls using numbers and write the name of the adjacent rooms.

2. Step: Include the Details

Make sure to get the height and width. Measure the ceiling height and record the height between the floor and the bottom of each window. Then measure the height from the bottom of the window to the top of the window. After that, record the height between the top of the window to the ceiling, and then from the floor to the ceiling. Also, make sure to take a horizontal measurement of walls.

When measuring, don’t forget to include the trim of windows and doors. Secure accurate measurements from one side of the door or window trim to the other side of door or window trim.

3. Step: Establish the Center of Your Drawing

Note the ceiling height at the center of your drawing and point the centerline of all elements that will take the same positions in the new kitchen. These can include doors, windows, closets, outlets, ducts, oven range, and sinks. Anything that you’re not keeping, don’t include it in the drawing.

4. Step: Plan Your Layout

In order to plan the layout of the new kitchen, you should have an access to the kitchen cabinet measurement guide and make sure you are aware of the size of all the cabinets you want to include in the new design. Find out what is their height, width, and depth. This will ease the process of planning your layout and will help you decide what cabinet size is the best for the project.

5. Step: Choose the Best Kitchen Cabinets

Once you have all of your kitchen measurements properly noted down and when the layout of the kitchen is defined, start choosing from many options of kitchen cabinets. You can narrow down your selection based on the cabinet size, style, and price. The most important thing is that the kitchen plan is defined.
