Accurate measurements are one of the most important steps when it comes to installing new cabinets. First, measure the full height of all of your cabinets and drawers, then use a pencil to mark corresponding measurements on the wall. Make sure that each cabinet or drawer is level with each other before marking on the wall. After you have measured all of the cabinets and drawers, use a measuring tape to measure the width of each one.
Once you have all measurements marked on the wall, it’s time to transfer them over to the new cabinets or drawer system that will be installed. However, it’s important not to simply take measurements from your old kitchen cabinets and match them over directly onto the new ones. Instead, use a level to measure at the middle of each cabinet or drawer and mark the measurements onto the base cabinets.
