If you’ve ever felt the desire to renovate your kitchen, you probably spent some time leafing through home magazines and looking online for design ideas. But it can be hard to take the inspiration you’ve gleaned from your research and visualize it in your unique kitchen space. That’s where ProKitchen software can help. It’s an easy way to plan out your dream kitchen or bath based on the specific measurements of the space in your home. Going beyond blueprints, ProKitchen software creates three-dimensional renderings of your design so that you can get a better sense of what your selected cabinetry, countertops, and appliances will look like when they do come to fruition.

Getting started with ProKitchen

ProKitchen is professional design software made accessible to everyone, and it works on both Mac and PC operating systems. After creating an account, which you’ll need to save your designs, you are able to access the software and get started sketching out your interior designs.

Once you have the ProKitchen software up and running, you’ll be prompted to choose from a variety of possible room layouts based on the number of walls you have to work with. You can enter the particular dimensions of those surrounding walls so that the space you’re sketching out matches your existing kitchen area. After you’ve set up the basic floor plan, it’s time to let your creativity take over.

Placing cabinets, countertops, fixtures, and more

The next step in designing your new kitchen layout is to place the items that will fill the room. This means selecting different sizes and styles of cabinetry, appliances, fixtures like sinks and faucets, doors, windows, and countertops. The ProKitchen software offers a wealth of design options for all of these items, which are based on real manufacturer catalogues, so you’ll know the items you put in place are likely going to be ready for installation when it comes time to start constructing.

When using the ProKitchen software, you’ll be able to scroll through several styles and designs for each item you want to include in your kitchen. For example, when it comes to cabinets, you’ll be able to choose from a number of different corner cabinets, sink base cabinets, wall cabinets, and lazy Susan cabinets. Select the style of cabinet you want for a particular area of the kitchen, then drag and drop that piece into place. The same process applies to all of the other pieces you want within your kitchen.

Utilizing the rendering

Once you’ve put all the pieces of your kitchen or bathroom in place, ProKitchen will render a three-dimensional image of your design. That detailed rendering gives you a true sense of what your renovated room will look like. That rendering and the two-dimensional blueprints, can be saved and shared with contractors and cabinet makers who can help bring the rendering to life.
