Kitchen Measurements

Sketch out the dimensions of your room

Start your floor plan by measuring the total length of each wall. Since some walls are not perfectly straight, measure at two locations: 6” above the finished floor and 6” below the ceiling. Use the smallest measurement.

Mark wall openings

Mark the locations of any openings, like doors and windows, along each wall. Measure to the outside edge of the door or window trim. Then measure from the outside edge to the next opening, or to the far wall.  

Identify fixtures

Locate wall fixtures like water lines, gas lines, and power outlets. Measure the horizontal distance to the center point and then measure the distance to these items from the floor. Record these locations on your floor plan.

Add island

If you have an island or peninsula, mark the size and location. Measure and note any cabinets, plumbing and outlets.

Locate ceiling fixtures

Locate ceiling lights, fans, air vents, and any other fixtures in the floor or ceiling, including soffits. Measure in two directions to locate the center of each fixture and add these to your floor plan.

Record ceiling height

Measure the full height of each wall from floor to ceiling and add it to your floor plan. Take multiple measurements on each wall and use the smallest measurement.

Measure appliances and openings

Measure the openings for each of your existing appliances. Record the width, depth, and height of each appliance and note which way doors open on each. When possible, record the brand and model numbers.

Measure lower cabinets

Measure the horizontal length of each group of adjacent lower (floor) cabinets. Each group of cabinets is usually separated by appliances or a sink. Measure from the first cabinet to the edge of the last cabinet. Total the linear feet of each group of cabinets. Also record the depth and height of each group of cabinets as you go.

Measure upper cabinets

Take the same set of measurements for the upper (ceiling) cabinets and add them to your floor plan. To find the total linear feet of your cabinet, add together the lengths of all your lower and upper cabinets.
