The online shopping industry is booming; it’s been setting records year after year and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. When you consider how much more convenient it is to purchase products online versus going in-person to a physical store, it’s no wonder that online shopping has become a billion-dollar industry.
Thanks to the astonishing growth of online shopping, you can now purchase practically any item on the Internet; that includes things that would have been considered impossible or impractical to buy online just a few years ago like cars, furniture, appliances, produce, and even buildings.
Other items that were once considered to be an in-person-only purchase are kitchen cabinets. In the past, you would have to go to a local showroom to pick out your cabinets but now that can all be done online through companies like Quick Ship Kitchens.

How to Design and Buy Your Cabinets Online
Designing and purchasing your cabinets online is easier than you might think; all the information you would normally provide to an in-person sales representative is simply transmitted to our team online. Here’s a step-by-step overview of the process:
1. Measure Your Kitchen and Sketch the Layout
The first thing you need to do is measure your kitchen then sketch the layout. For this step, you’ll need to make sure you have a measuring tape, pencil, and paper. You can use a plain piece of paper if you’d like but it’s easier to record accurate measurements if you use pre-printed graph paper; we’ve provided you with free graph paper in a printable pdf for your convenience.
Once you’ve gathered all your tools, head to your kitchen and start measuring. You should begin by measuring the length of the walls in your kitchen then sketching out a basic outline of your kitchen. To ensure that your sketch remains accurate, record measurements down to ¼ of an inch; if you try to round up or down, your schematic will be incorrect.
Once you have the perimeter of your kitchen sketched out, go around the room and start measuring all the windows, doors, and all other openings from the far edge of the frame or trim. Remember to note whether doors swing inward or outward as that could affect how cabinets and other elements are placed.
After measuring doors and windows, the next step is to record measurements for all your appliances including your refrigerator, dishwasher, range, microwave, and sink. Then go around the room and make note of any additional details that might affect cabinet placement such as range hoods, low ceilings, floor vents, or half walls.
The schematic of your current kitchen is now complete! Next, you need to consider if you want to keep your cabinet layout the same or change the configuration. If you’re looking at redoing the layout, then you’ll need to create a second sketch to indicate what you’d like the remodeled kitchen to look like. Again, try to keep it as accurate as possible to prevent issues later in the remodeling process.
- Photograph Your Kitchen
Photos of your kitchen are an immense help in the design process. We all know that a picture is worth a thousand words; that adage holds true when planning your kitchen remodel, too. By providing our design team with photos, it enables them to visualize the space more clearly and create cabinets that fit perfectly. Make sure to take several pictures from various angles so that every inch of your kitchen appears in the photos.
- Provide Details About Your Kitchen
The next step is to fill out the detailed Design Request Form found on our website. On the form, you’ll provide us with information on your desired cabinet style, kitchen measurements, preferred accessories, and budget plus upload your photos and schematics.
- Receive a Quote, Finalize Details, and Order
After receiving your Design Request, our team will review your answers, photos, and drawings then get back to you with a quote. They’ll work with you to finalize all the details to make sure you get cabinets you love at a price you can afford then place the order.
