Is your Kitchen Design Software costing you more than you realize?

If you're a kitchen designer, you're constantly dealing with the pressure of deadlines, while still trying to deliver the best possible design for your clients. Pencil and paper drawings or using cumbersome CAD systems waste time, frustrate you, and keep you from issuing proposals in a responsive manner. All of this can wear you out.

SketchList 3D is the easy-to-use kitchen design software tool that creates beautiful, functional, and realistic designs quickly and easily. The program features an intuitive interface that allows you to quickly draw out your ideas and modify them as required by your prospect.

The minefield of kitchen design

A successful custom kitchen planner business depends on a designer's ability to translate clients' ideas and desires into great designs. And now, with so much technology at our fingertips, more designers are using software to give them an edge. However, this can be a minefield because choosing the wrong kitchen design software is a disaster. Not only does it cause a frustrating amount of wasted time and mental energy, but also hurts your productivity, profitability, and even your reputation.

Don’t Use the Wrong Ingredients to Cook Up Your Kitchen Design

The tools you use can make or break your project - and if you're still drawing by hand or even using CAD, consider your project doomed before you've even begun.

The problem with CAD software is that it's still designed for architects or engineers, not kitchen designers. Invented in 1957, it is more than five decades old. And little has changed with it in terms of the basic way it’s used – which was developed for machining metal, not cabinets.

Not only can these outdated design methods be frustrating, but they also cost you time and money. Lost bids, missed delivery dates, embarrassing mistakes, and slow back-and-forth adjustments and changes can be devastating to your business.

There is a better and faster way to master your designs

Transform the way you design with the help of SketchList’s kitchen planner. You can go from wasted hours and missed opportunities to finishing projects with time to spare, allowing you to take on even more clients than you ever thought possible. We have a variety of tools that make it easy for anyone to use, from beginners just getting started in this industry to professional designers with years under their belt!

SketchList 3D is without a doubt the easiest to use design software I have ever encountered. It only took an hour or so before I semi-mastered the basics. Thanks for a great app.

I love SketchList 3D! It is a fantastic piece of software. It was a major pain to try to create projects on some of the other CAD programs I have tried. I am pretty much a weekend warrior and this software has made my projects go a lot more smoothly.

SketchList 3D support is very personal and prompt – this is hard to come by these days. With all the help I have become very familiar with the software and have already gained a client through the different features offered.

REALLY GREAT PRODUCT! I love SketchList 3D. I've never really "built" anything from scratch before but with this tool, I was able to! My core design was done in just over 6 hours (including learning the tool). Everything makes really good sense and it’s easy to use.

What is Professional 3D Kitchen Design Software?

SketchList is the all-in-one tool that enables you to become a virtual kitchen designer in minutes. It comes with customization options for objects, colors, and materials that allow you to make advanced 2D and 3D photo renderings of cabinets, countertops, and more. This means your customers can see every detail of the final product and sign off on it before you even schedule the job, buy the materials, or make the first cut.

So, What Does Kitchen Planner Software Enable You To do?

What would it mean for your business if you could create a professional kitchen design in an hour? Using our kitchen planner, you can do that in much less time and with greater quality than is possible with pencil and paper.

Craft detailed models


SketchList thinks the way you do. It helps you streamline your workflow and does not sacrifice detail or quality. Apply joinery, contours, holes, angles, and board shapes just as you want them with amazing, detailed accuracy.

Drive sales with professional renderings


Quickly create designs with custom details and include photos and photorealistic backgrounds of your client's homes to bring their dream kitchen to life before their eyes.

Modify designs effortlessly

Involving your clients in the design process both deepens your working relationship and gives them a sense of ownership of the project.

Make accurate bids
