How to Measure for Cabinets

Make a rough drawing:
  • Draw your kitchen floor plan with each wall, door, window, protrusion and recessed areas. Your drawing can be freehand, on plain or grid paper. You do NOT have to draw to scale but we need accurate measurements.

Measure the walls:
  • Measure each wall length.
  • Measure floor to ceiling at several locations and record the smallest and largest dimensions.
  • If your kitchen has soffit (or bulkheads), measure soffit height and depth. If you plan on removing your soffits, skip this step. What is soffit?
  • If your kitchen has angulated or slanted walls, measure the angles.
  • TIP: mark all your measurements in inches. For example 90" NOT 7' 6 ".
