Appliance Sizes Are Important!
In order to do a complete kitchen design, we will need to know the exact sizes of all appliances that are going to be used in your new kitchen. If you are going to buy new appliances, the store associate will help you fill out the form. We recommend the Superstore for all of your appliance needs.

-Mark all measurements in inches (for example, 7’6” would be 90”).
-How far a door swings into your kitchen may affect cabinet placement, so pay close attention here.
-Soffit space is the bulkhead between the ceiling and the top of the cabinet.
-DOUBLE CHECK YOUR MEASUREMENTS.
Notes On Soffits:
– Soffits for a standard 8 ft ceiling typically begin 84 inches off the kitchen floor, creating a soffit of 12 inches; you can add a quarter inch more if you plan to have 30 inch upper cabinets. If you will not have soffits, you can use a 39 inch wall cabinet or simply leave the space above the wall cabinet open.
-It is suggest to leave 12-15 inches of work space around large appliance like refrigerators, ranges and dishwashers, and 24-36 inches on either side of the sink. You will need at least 40 inches under a window, outlet or switch for base cabinets, counters and a basic 4 inch backsplash.
