Other things like lighting and electrical sockets are shown on the floor plan.

Elevation – this is a flat drawing that gives an elevated view as if you were facing it. This allows you to see the details of the cabinetry components that are not visible in the floor plan view. It can also be used to see the height of the kitchen components.

Perspective – this is a 3-D or three-dimensional drawing that shows the actual space that would be used up. The actual view of cabinets and appliances can be seen.

Cabinets are the main kitchen units within our households, business or environment. In order to keep a kitchen functional and organized it is important to test the layout of the fixtures. If you have a dysfunctional kitchen with poor layout, limited counter space and lack of storage; use these ideas above to create a kitchen that is organized and functional.
