Typical Information Needed   


General: In the absence of blueprints, we can go to work designing your cabinetry with a quick sketch (see example). We plan to field measure every job with extremely accurate laser equipment before we build your cabinets, so any design measurements are usable even if they're off a little.

Note (A) whether drywall is present, (B) the ceiling height, and (C) any new floor material ("hardwood"). Likewise describe (D) the countertop material (e.g., "granite") since it can affect cabinet construction.

Wall Dimensions: (E) Measure from wall ends or corners. Don't forget to measure (F) short "return" walls. It is also helpful to measure (G) spans between walls where islands are planned.

Window and Door Locations: Measure (H) both sides of the window or door from a common corner or wall end. It helps to note the (J) width of the opening for confirmation. Measure from the outside of window or door trim if there is any. Where critical to your vision, note (K) the height of the window and (L) its height off the current floor.

Plumbing Locations: Measure (M) standard sink sets (hot, cold, and drain) from approximately 1" on either side of the set to a common corner or wall end. (N) Single items like toilets, refrigerator connections, pot fillers should be measured to their centers.

Certain Electrical Locations: Measure (P) the centers of special switches or outlets (e.g., built-in microwave, speaker or data ports) from a common corner or wall end, and their height from the floor.

Range Hood Duct: Measure (Q) the center from a corner or wall end.    Return to Design Process.
