Some people make the mistake of selecting their cabinets first, hoping they will fit correctly when they get ready to install them. Taking this approach results in much unneeded stress and headaches that are easy to avoid. Remodeling your kitchen starts with creating a kitchen design. This step is vital to the success of your project and should not be overlooked.

The proper way to create your kitchen design is to follow these tips:

  1. Prepare to Measure Your Kitchen – You will need a tape measure, pencil, eraser and several sheets of paper. Start by sketching the layout of your kitchen. Remember to include the location of appliances, islands and your cabinets. You may want to use one sheet of paper for the base cabinets and another for wall cabinets.
  2. Measure Your Kitchen – You want to obtain measurements for the ceiling and all walls. Make a note of any gaps in between cabinets, like windows and entry/exit openings. Also measure the length, depth and height of your existing cabinets.
  3. Use Your Measurement to Select Cabinets – Use the cabinet measurements to select new similarly sized ones. Alternatively, you could add the lengths of two or more cabinets together and look for a larger single cabinet.
  4. Take Advantage of Free Design Services – It never hurts to get a second opinion prior to ordering your new cabinets. Free design services review the sketch of your kitchen and the measurements for accuracy. Additionally, you can ask the design team for their recommendations and a detailed list of the cabinets you will require for your new kitchen, along with 3D renderings for no additional costs.
