No matter how much cabinet space you have, you will very likely use it all and still desire more. If you need to calculate your current cabinet space, or are looking at some models, the task is aided by the quality of cabinets being simple, rectilinear geometric forms. To get the volume of the space in your cabinets, multiply the dimensions to calculate the space you have, then aggregate your figures.
Things You'll Need
- Measuring tape
Measure the length, width and height of the first cabinet.
Multiply the figures together. As an example, say your first cabinet has dimensions of 14 inches by 15.5 inches by 22 inches. The total in cubic inches is 4,774.
Convert the cubic inches to cubic feet, should you choose. To do this, divide the figure by 1,728 (the number of cubic inches in one cubic foot). In the present example, a cabinet with 4,774 cubic inches of space would convert to 2.76 cubic feet.
Repeat the procedure for other cabinets.
Add the space in the cabinets all together for a final figure.
