5 Easy Steps To Measure Your Kitchen:
1. Lay Out The Shape
The first thing is to draw a box that shows all the walls you want cabinets on. You also need to include any significant structural features. PLEASE NOTE THE FLOOR TO CEILING HEIGHT, which is very important for new kitchen cabinets in Northern Virginia.
2. Draw Your Kitchen
Make a note of all kitchen openings (doors, windows, etc.) You also need to include obstacles that can affect where existing cabinets are (radiators, for instance). Label these openings in the space using letters. For example, W for window or D for the door. Create a key on the sketch paper that includes these letters. You can refer back to this key if you’re unable to remember what the letters stood for.
3. Begin Measuring
Now is the time you need to get the tape measure out and measure your kitchen space. You’ll need to measure every opening from the outside to the inside edge. Add to the key where necessary if you’re unsure of the exact measurements, round to the nearest inch. The sketch is only supposed to be a guide for the design process. Our team will take more detailed measures later on.
4. Your Kitchen Layout
The majority of clients have a good idea where the big items are going to go in the new space. You are encouraged to sketch any ideas you have for the layout, including where your stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, and other appliances are going to go.
5. Upload Photos
Pictures can speak volumes about your kitchen you’ll be remodeling. Simply snap 4-6 smartphone or iPad photos of your existing kitchen, and email them to us at [email protected] along with your sketch measurements.
Jot down the layout and take some quick measurements of your kitchen. Once we have the pictures and measurements, Explore will email you your Free 3D kitchen renderings, sketch drawings, with a birdseye view, and depending on your kitchen size, up to 10 pages of renderings of your new dream kitchen.
