Due to the overwhelming number of visitors to our cabinet outlet warehouse, we kindly request that all visitors to our warehouse come prepared with as much information as possible.

You can either come with a kitchen design, or bring along all the pertinent measurements of your kitchen, and we will assist you in designing your kitchen.

To assist you in measuring your kitchen we provide a kitchen measurement guide.

NOTE:

  1. Please use this kitchen cabinets measurements guide (PDF document) to print out and mark down your dimensions (graph paper and measurement charts provided). Please fax in your measurements or visit one of our showrooms for help with design. (Please note our hours of operation. Appointments are necessary on Sundays.)
  2. Double check your work. These measurements must be 100% correct for your new cabinetry to fit perfectly.

Measuring Your Kitchen – Step by Step

Room:

  1. Measure the room wall-to-wall.
  2. Measure from the floor to the ceilings.(Measure all walls even if you do not plan to put cabinets on them as this is important for us to present you with a proper design.)

Walls:

  1. Make a rough drawing of the shape of the room showing any walls, doors, windows, protrusions or recessed areas.
  2. Measure each wall section and record the dimensions on the drawing. (A wall section is from one corner to a door way or window.)

Doors:

  1. Measure each door/path and record the width. Please indicate on your sketch if a door swings in or out of the room and which side the hinge is on.

Windows/Walls:

  1. Measure the height from the floor to the bottom of your windows and mark it down.
  2. Measure the height from the top of the window to the ceiling and mark it down.

Windows:

  1. height– measure from top to bottomb) width – measure across window, from right to left. (Don’t forget windows are measured from outside edge to outside edge of casing or trim.)

Appliances:

  1. Mark the locations of where the appliances will go.
  2. Record the dimensions of each appliance – height, width, and depth. NOTE: If you are putting in new appliances, make sure to have the height, width, and depth, of any new stoves, dishwashers, and refrigerators ready at the time of design. If you will be getting new services such as a water line for an ice maker, or under cabinet outlets for water filters, wine keepers, or garbage disposal, please indicate that as well.

Utilities:

  1. Mark on your sketch, the exact location of the sink, water & gas lines, wall switch & receptacles, and any other obstructions in the room. Measure from the end of the wall the utility is on to the middle of the pipe/switch, etc. to note its exact location in the room.

How To Measure Your Bathroom for Installing Vanities – Step by Step

  1. 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.
  2. Confirm that a 21” deep bathroom vanity will work in your available space. If your space is limited, we offer a limited selection of 18” deep bath vanities.
  3. Confirm that a 34.5” height vanity will work in your available space. As that is the tallest vanity we presently offer.
