The online shopping industry continues to grow and set new records year after year. It’s hard to believe something that didn’t even exist a few short decades ago has now become a multi-billion-dollar industry.
But it’s no wonder why people choose to shop online – it’s simply more convenient. When you purchase products online instead of going to a physical store, you save time, get a wider selection and better prices, and can easily compare products.
You can buy practically anything online these days, but few people consider purchasing new kitchen cabinets via the Internet. Why is that? Perhaps they think the process is too cumbersome to be completed 100% online. But that’s a misconception – It’s easy to design and order your East Coast Online Cabinets online, especially when you choose cabinets from Quick Ship Kitchens.
How to Design and Purchase Your East Coast Cabinets Online
Designing and ordering your kitchen cabinets online is easy to accomplish. All the information you would normally relay in-person to store employees simply gets sent online. Here’s how the process works:
Step 1: Take detailed measurements and make a sketch of your kitchen layout
Before you get started taking measurements, be sure you have all the tools you’ll need: a pencil, tape measure, and paper. A plain piece of paper will suffice, but you’ll probably find it easier to accurately represent measurements if you use graph paper; we’ve provided some graph paper for you here in a printable pdf.
Once you have your materials ready, it’s time to head to your kitchen and start measuring. The first measurements you take should be the outside walls; don’t worry about the details yet – get the room measurements first. Using the measurements of your walls, sketch out the basic shape of your kitchen on your paper.
After creating the outline of your kitchen, measure the doors, windows, and other openings. For the utmost accuracy, record measurements down to ¼ of an inch. Measure doors and windows from the far edge of the frame or trim and don’t forget to make note of which way doors open, as that could influence cabinet placement.
The next step is to measure and record all of your appliances including your refrigerator, range, sink, microwave, and dishwasher. You should then add any other details that might influence the placement of your cabinets, such as low ceilings, range hoods, half walls, or floor vents.
Add any additional details that would be helpful to our East Coast Online Cabinet Design team. If you’re wanting to remodel your kitchen and change the placement of cabinets and/or appliances, it’s a good idea to create a separate sheet that includes the new desired measurements.
Step 2: Take pictures of your current kitchen
You know what they say – a picture is worth a thousand words. Pictures are an essential tool in the East Coast Online Cabinet Design process; they help our team create cabinets that fit perfectly into your space.
Be sure to take multiple pictures from a variety of angles. Before sending the pictures to the design team, check to make sure that they’re in focus and that every inch of your kitchen has been documented.
Step 3: Tell us about your kitchen
The next step in the process is to fill out our detailed Design Request Form online. On the form, you can indicate your desired cabinet style, measurements, options, and accessories in addition to your redecorating budget. If you’re not sure what style or accessories to select, you can check out the various options here.
There’s also space on the form to upload the kitchen drawing(s) you created in step one and the photos you took in step two. Make sure to upload these before you submit the form.
Step 4: Talk to our design team
Once your Design Request has been received, our experienced team will review it and make some calculations before getting back to you to discuss the details. We’ll then guide you step-by-step through the ordering process to ensure that you get exactly what you want at a price you can afford.
