Measure Your Straight Kitchen

Ensure Accuracy: You'll need a tape measure, paper, and a straight edge.

Measure Clockwise: It's easier to record the overall length of each wall by working to your right around the room. Pretend you are on the ceiling looking down on your kitchen.

Get the Width and the Height: Take horizontal measurements (width) of walls, doors and windows. Then take vertical measurements (height) of the ceiling, doors and windows. When measuring the doors and windows, always include the trim around these in the measurement.

Bring Your Specifications: We'll need the specifications of all of your appliances you plan on using in the kitchen, including wall ovens, range or cooktop, dishwasher, and refrigerator. Specifications include the appliance dimensions, cut-out specifications and model numbers.

Take some pictures: Pictures help us look at your space and see how the kitchen is laid out.

Make an Appointment: Call and make an appointment with one of our Kitchen Designers and we'll get you one step closer to making your dream kitchen a reality.
