How to Measure your Space & Design the Perfect Kitchen
The Cowry Kitchen Designer app was developed to streamline the kitchen renovation process and make it more affordable than ever before. The app itself was built using advanced AI software, so all you have to do to design your kitchen is take some measurements and select what style cabinets and accessories you like!
In this article, we will take you through a step-by-step explanation of how to properly measure your kitchen, and then design a new one, using the Cowry Kitchen Designer app.
How to Measure & Design your Kitchen with Cowry
Materials Needed: A Smart Phone and a Measuring Tape.
To begin designing, launch your app and tap on the picture of the kitchen you prefer. To customize the style of your cabinets, select build your own.
Style your Cabinets
Next, you can choose the color, style and height of your cabinets. Note that there are two options for cabinet height: 30″ or 39″. To determine which height to select, measure the height of the ceiling in your kitchen. If it is taller than 8 feet, choose 39″. If it is lower than 8 feet, choose 30″. When you are finished, tap confirm.
At this point, if you have already registered, you will be able to proceed. If not, tap on sign up now and follow the instructions!
Choose your kitchen shape
Now comes the fun part! Start designing your kitchen by choosing which basic shape best corresponds to your space.
Make a note of where your gas, electrical and plumbing lines are before moving forwards. This will help you decide where to place your appliances later on.
Measure your Walls
Start by measuring the length of each wall in your kitchen. Double check your numbers by measuring twice! Then, tap on the yellow box that corresponds to each wall to input your numbers.
Continue taking Measurements
Next, tap add to input measurements for the rest of the elements of the room. Make sure you measure and add these numbers in the order they appear on your app, starting with any windows.
Measure your Windows
Measure the width of the window and the distance from the edge of the window to the edge of the wall. To input your window measurements, simply tap add to open kitchen features, and then tap window to edit the width. When you are finished, tap update. Tap the window on the wall, and then tap the pop up that reads to A and input the measurement from the window to the edge of the wall indicated by the letter A.
Measure your kitchen elements
Continue with measuring your appliances in the order they appear. Start with the fridge and note its width. Tap on fridge to select your fridge size. Tap on the appliance to adjust its position or drag it into place. Repeat this process for each appliance and element in your kitchen.
Note that if your fridge is located next to a wall, you will need to factor in a 2-3″ gap between that wall and the fridge.
Once you have completed all your measurements and placed your elements where you want them, simply tap on the optimize button to start the automated AI design process! You will now be able to tap on the preview button to see a 3D rendering of your kitchen design.
At this point, you can further customize your design by tapping on molding to add molding to your cabinets, tapping on draw to switch your regular base cabinets to drawer cabinets or tapping on next to view an alternative design.
Now that you have designed your perfect kitchen, it’s time to check-out! Tap on price to view your cabinet specifications and cost. If everything looks good, tap on add to cart to add your selections to your shopping cart. You can also customize your cabinet handles by tapping choose accessories and adding the style you want to your cart. Tap on your shopping cart when you are ready to proceed to check-out and follow the instructions to purchase your kitchen!
There you have it! Your brand-new Cowry kitchen will ship in 1-2 business days and arrive in 5-7 business days (or sooner depending where you are located!). Follow these 12 simple steps, and you will be able to design and build a high-quality kitchen in a matter of days instead of months. Now, wasn’t that easy?
