Many people get confused about kitchen and bath measurements.
It’s actually EASY and simple
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:
Almost all base cabinets are 24″ deep, and wall cabinets are 12″ deep.
(Custom cabinets may differ, but it’s silly to deviate from these norms, which are standard in the industry.)
So, measure one WALL of counters. Yes, EVERYTHING gets measured whether they’re cabinets or not – ovens, refrigerators, sinks, windows, EVERYTHING. If it’s in the kitchen, MEASURE it.
Let’s say that wall of kitchen is 10′ long. Measure another wall – it could be an L-shaped kitchen or a galley kitchen or a U-shaped kitchen – doesn’t matter.
If it’s a L-shaped kitchen, measure that corner TWICE. (Why? Corner cabinets cost double!) So if the second wall is 8′ long, you have a kitchen that’s 18 linear feet.
That’s IT -you’re done.
Here’s an example:
This is a U-shaped kitchen. Two walls are 70″ long, two are 20″ and one is 90″.
Total is 270 linear inches. Divide by 12 and you get 22.5 linear feet.
It’s really that simple. Congratulations – You know how to measure like a PRO.
