Exclusive to Ménards, there is a program called UCreate that is free and can help you with your home renovation project related to cabinetmaking. The program allows you to enter exact dimensions, the shape of your space, all windows and doors, and then build your cabinets with those exact details. This is great for preparing measurements and materials, but it also allows you to visualize the project before making purchases. Experiment with different styles and colors to bring your project to life on your computer screen.
The process of designing a part is helpful, but it can be time-consuming and frustrating if you’re not specific. The best way to start is with the basics, like the shape of your room, and from there enter dimensions and easily add accessories like posts, soffits, tubs, toilets, and other fixtures. The next step is to choose a brand, which will depend on whether you are working on kitchen cabinets, closets or storage. Choosing the cabinet color and door style is an easy step thanks to the detailed photos that represent each option on the website. Once you’ve decided on your style, you can really get into the details by trying out each individual section of cabinets and pieces. Easily move them around the room, explore dimensions, and know the price as you go. If something goes wrong, you will receive a bright yellow warning message that will show you in detail what is wrong. You can also view the part from different angles, remove and add features, rotate cabinets, and find model numbers in the program.
