Measuring Your Kitchen
- Start with the first wall on the left and work to your right around the room. First measure the overall length of each wall in your kitchen. First at the top (measurement "A") and then along the middle of the same wall (measurement "B"). Also measure Distance from the floor to the ceiling.
- Indicate all breaks in wall (windows, doors, closets) by measuring from the corner to the outside edge of the molding. Don't forget to indicate any permanenet appliances, air vents, offsets, etc.
- Measure to the center line of the plumbing, ducting and outlets.
- Compare measurement "A" against the total of measurements "B" - they should match. Measure the height of your refrigerator - a tall refrigerator may prevent installing a kitchen cabinet directly above it.
