Floor plan elevations for quality custom cabinetry, and how to design plans to build your own cabinets
Floor plan and elevations for a custom cabinetry project begins with the walls; every part on the design drawings has a number, no configuring north, south, east, west, just numbers. From the beginning, it is important on how to design the cabinet's layout, especially if you plan to build your own cabinets.
With a smart floor plan and elevations; all cabinets, fillers, panels, windows and house doors will have their own unique number, which will follow them through the entire process. This allows for easy communication from design through manufacturing and ultimately installation. Every service personal involved in the project; plumber, electrician, painter, etc... and home owner, will use the same set of drawings for their specific needs. Also, this makes it relatively simple to order replacement components or matching appliances to the specified openings on the drawings.
Let's overlook how the numbering of parts and components can help you to move from the floor plan to the wall elevation; for changes, improvement, or parts replacement
If you dislike base cabinet #2 with Drawer and two Doors and would like to replace with, a 3Drawer cabinet, no problem, it will be #2 on all your lists with specific dimensions. It is very easy to modify; simply remove cab # 2 and replace with the desired cabinet. All specs and parts will automatically change.
Let's go into the details on drawings. Wall #1 has on its surface window #52, cabinets and panels with random numbers. The end panels #11 and #13 can be the trim for window #52; also as the finished end panels for cabinets #10 and #14.
It doesn't matter on which kind of custom cabinetry project you design you floor plan and elevations drawings; small bathroom, home office, kitchen or walk in closet, just try to build them intelligently and only one's during the entire construction process.
If your floor plan and elevations design are done properly, you can utilize them successfully to build your own cabinets at home.

On this project, for the final design, all columns were replaced from fluted to half-round ones. Also #3, 4, 13 and 20 became square (not mitered).
Overall, dimensions stay the same. But again, it will be no big deal to tweak cabinet sizes. Your final goal is to stay perfectly between corner walls.
