How to Measure for Cabinets

Measuring your space

Some of the first things you will need to know about your room are the dimensions. If you are building, your builder or architect can provide you with a set of plans to provide you with all the information needed.

If you are remodeling, measure the space carefully and create a sketch of the room. In the finished design you will show the locations of all appliances, plumbing, electrical outlets, light switches, windows and doors you wish to keep.

(note - all measurements should be in inches)

Tools needed:

  1. A 25 foot metal tape measure
  2.  graph paper
  3.  pencil and paper


  1. Begin in one corner, select a wall and measure its length from corner to corner.
  2. Write the measurement on the corresponding wall on your sketch.
  3. Go to the next corner and measure the length of the next wall.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until all wall measurements are complete.
  5. Measure the height of the room. Write this dimension in the space provided.


Locate any existing plumbing and measure the distance from each wall and floor. Repeat for electrical outlets, light switches, lighting hookups and telephone jacks.
