Whether you are remodeling a kitchen project or building a new kitchen, the process can be challenging. You might not know where to start, especially if it is your first time working with kitchen cabinets. The first step after dreaming about your new cabinetry will be to properly evaluate your space. You may want to do this in a very detailed manner if you are confident to measure on your own. Or, you may want to get a rough draft that enables you to be a step ahead when you meet with a cabinet design expert.
