Measuring your kitchen is easy. By following these simple instructions and using the graph paper provided in the kitchen planner, you can help speed along the design process for your new kitchen.
- Start in one corner (A) and measure to the edge of the first door or window and mark this measurement down.
- Measure the door or window (B) from one outside edge of the trim to the other outside edge.
- Now, measure from the outside of the trim to the corner (C) or next door or window.
- Repeat Step 1 through Step 3 until you have measured the entire room.
Double-check your measurements by measuring the entire wall length from wall to wall and comparing it to your individual measurements taken in Steps 1 – 3.
For example, (A) to (C): Entire wall measures 144″
From (A) to (B) = 49 1/2″. (B) = 45″. (B) to (C) = 49 1/2″.
Totals: 49 1/2 + 45 + 49 1/2 = 144
