How To Measure Your Kitchen or Bath For New Cabinets

Accurate measurements of your kitchen or bath is important in designing your new cabinets. Please follow the steps in this kitchen and bath planner and give the information to your Ultimate Millwork's cabinetry product specialist.

Floor Plan

You will need to carefully configure the exact dimensions of your room. Your completed floor plan should resemble the diagram to the right. Be sure to show exact locations of doors, windows, hood vents, exhaust, gas lines, water line, drain line, outlets, switches, light fixtures,  and heat vents.

 

NOTE : ALWAYS DOUBLE CHECK  MEASUREMENTS.

Wood Species

Cherry

Cherry is a moderately hard wood, heavy and strong with red undertones. As cherry ages, it will darken. Cherry is one of the most desirable woods on the market today. It may range in color from a light to dark reddish-brown. These variations are often quite visible with natural or light finishes, while appearing less on darker stains. This is the natural beauty of the wood and should not be considered a defect.

Birch

Birch is a medium-hard wood with plain and closed grain. The grain is often characterized as a curly or wavy pattern. It is predominately a light yellow wood that takes stain very well. When a finish is applied, the wavy and curly grain absorbs stain and reflects light in such a manner as to enhance the actual characteristics of the species and should not be considered a defect

Maple

Maple is a hard and dense wood with a closed grain that is relatively subtle in appearance, giving it uniformity in its texture. Maple resists indentation and abrasion. Because of its uniformity and hardiness, maple makes an excellent wood to paint as well as stain. The color range runs from white to yellow to brown. When a light finish is applied, these variations are visible and should not be considered defects.

 

Oak

Oak is an extremely hard wood with an open grain. The grain pattern may vary from a tight to wide pattern with coarse texture. In its natural state, colors may range from brownish with a red tinge to light yellow. Variations in tone are more visible with lighter finishes and should not be considered a defect.

Painted MDF

The core of these doors is comprised of MDF (also known as medium-density fiberboard).  MDF is smooth and free of knots and grain patterns, and consistently very dense, it makes an exceptional alternative for solid wood in many uses.  MDF is also the perfect choice for painting because there is no woodgrain showing through. MDF is made up of a resin binder and wood particles, these particles are separated uniformly to make a fine, consistent material that is cooked and pressure steamed. The material is then bound with an adhesive and heat pressed to produce a strong and solid board. MDF has many of the same characteristics of natural wood, but without many of its limitations.

Thermofoil

Milled from vinyl wrapped material over fiberboard, thermofoil cabinets offer contemporary styling, exceptional durability and wear properties, as well as superior cleaning features. Thermofoil is applied to cabinetry frames, giving perfect door-to-frame match in comparison to painted frames, which vary in color.
