Your kitchen is the most used room in your house, and quite often a source of aggravation. But remodeling a kitchen can be a risky endeavor. Most of the danger can be eliminated if you have a good plan in place and that’s the idea behind my book “SketchUp For Kitchen Design”.
It shows you how to use SketchUp (a free for personal use 3D modeling program) while it takes you through the process of making a model of your room and filling it with new cabinets and appliances. If you (or your client or significant other can’t decide between Plan A or Plan B you can compare the two side by side from any point of view. When you’ve made your choices the model contains all the information you need about the exact size of all the bits and pieces. This isn’t your average book; it’s in enhanced PDF format with 49 short videos embedded within 195 pages of illustrated text.

I’ve been thinking about redoing our kitchen for a couple of years now. SketchUp for Kitchen Design would really help!
We have an ikea kitchen for 12 years now and it’s starting to show. Being a woodwork enthusiast, i’d like to replace it by something I made myself. Biggest problem is to show my wife how’s it gonna be. Not being a graphical genius, that’s not easy. SketchUp could help bjt to be honest, I find it a little overwhelming and I can’t get the hang of it. So there you have it…
I built my Kitchen 33 years ago when we first bought the house, the carcases and composite top remain the same but I have changed the doors and shelves a couple of times. The long suffering boss must be totally fed up of it by now and it would be nice to renew it for our 50th wedding anniversary at the end of March next year. also my no 2 daughter has just bought a new house, she lives 85 miles away and has already booked me to replace the kitchen and a couple of wardrobes so it would be really good to be able to take proper measurements instead of my usual scraps of paper to work from,
Congratulations Ian! Your comment was selected at random and you win a free copy of “SketchUp For Kitchen Design”.
Bob your book is a great place to start, I am a professional custom cabinet maker for over 40 years, and I love all you sketchup books they have helped me show that boxes are easy to make. There is special software call cabwriter that works great with sketchup.

I often suffer when I attempt to bridge that creative gap between knowing the technical aspects of building something and a finished functional product. I need a better way to visualize that finished product without all the mis-steps that usually follow me. I’ve used Sketchup in the past, but only painfully collecting bits and pieces to see how it can be used. I’d love to climb this learning curve with your book. Thanks for the opportunity.
I just saw Stumpy Nubs’ review on this book. I really want to put this one on my Christmas list. I have been using Sketchup for several years, but there is just so much more that I don’t know!

I am trying to learn sketch-up and not having much luck. This looks like it could help me along. Neal Smith
I built my home 23 years ago and the kitchen is outdated. My wife would like a kitchen with design features only found in custom cabinets. I am new to Sketch Up and woodworking and this would be a great tool to help me achieve fulfilling my wife’s desires.
I am disabled, but am going to atempt our kitchen remodelling myself as medical cosst keeps us from getting it done. Would really help to be able to use the computer to do the design.

Awesome site Bob! Thanks for spending time creating such a useful tool for us! I’ve wanted to learn Sketchup for some time to aid in my woodworking skills, but having a kitchen to do for a friend, you’ll help me in 2 ways! First to draw the kitchen and in the process, hopefully I’ll be able to draw my own ww projects in years to come. Again, thanks.
