Step-by-step Guide for Measuring Cabinets

Measure the width.

The first step in measuring your cabinets is to determine the width. Measure the width of the space, considering any obstacles, such as electrical outlets or windows. Make sure to measure from wall to wall rather than measuring the existing cabinet and assuming it will fit.

Measure the height.

When installing cabinets, measuring precisely from the floor up to the top of your cabinetry and any counters or surfaces nearby is essential. Remember to check that there is sufficient ceiling clearance too! By double-checking all measurements, you can rest assured that those new cabinets will fit perfectly and look great for years to come.

Measure the depth.

When selecting a new cabinet, it is essential to accurately measure the depth of your space and ensure that it fits. The depth of the cabinet refers to the distance between its front and back panels; this measurement can be particularly important for base cabinets as it affects how much countertop area will be available. With precise measurements in hand, you can easily identify which cabinetry best suits your needs!

Measure the opening.

Before ordering your cabinets, it's important to measure the opening of the space. It will ensure that the cabinet will fit doorways and around corners on its way to the installation location.

Note any special considerations.

Ultimately, consider any issues that may change the size or design of your cabinets. For instance, if there is an angled wall or sloped ceiling in the area, it's important to order cabinets specifically created for those dimensions.

But it doesn't stop there; We also provide helpful do's and don'ts when measuring cabinets that are important to consider:
