The Planning Process

Every new project begins with a plan, and every plan begins with a floor plan. Heartwood Cabinetry offers you a Room Planning Sheet to create a rough drawing of your space, which will be very useful in the design process. So take some measurements and develop a basic sketch of your room on the Room Planning Sheet, and you're on your way!


  • Always use a pencil
  • Measure in inches only
  • Note all fixtures, utilities and electrical outlets/switches (with dimensions)
  • Include location and size of windows, doors and any existing appliances
  • Indicate which way doors swing into which rooms
  • Measure ceiling height
  • It's a good idea to hire a professional to measure your space before cabinetry and
    other room elements are purchased.
