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Not only can these outdated design methods be frustrating, but they also cost you time and money.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.

I got new orders thanks to my craftsmanship and SketchList 3D! They told me they couldn't believe how fast I produced concept drawings of their new kitchen.
Just completed my first major build using SketchList 3D. Overall, I am thrilled.
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.
