Home > Design > 3d Kitchen Planner- Chief Architect with Barker Cabinets (beta)

"Chief Architect is not required for designing with our cabinets but it is a fun way to design your project. Enjoy this very powerful software that will allow you to design your whole home with a very impressive number of catalogs that range from our cabinets and colors, to high-end appliances, furniture, and much more. " Chad Barker

Steps to install:

1. Install any version of Chief Architect. Our catalog works with Chief Architect Professional trial versions.

*TRIAL VERSION- The trail version if free for unlimited use. The only downside is that the trial version will not allow you to print or save your work.
**RENT TO OWN- For larger and more complex projects, we recommend the "rent to own option" of Chief Architect Interiors. This starts at $199 per month (cancel when you are done using the software) and will allow you access to all the features as shown in the video tutorials (i.e. this includes the "cabinet schedule" list, "object eyedropper", and all downloadable 3d catalogs including Sub Zero, GE, Wolf, Cambria, Sherwin Williams, Rev-a-Shelf, etc).

3. Once you have the software installed, get up and running real quick by downloading a template plan here. This template is a small kitchen (the same as was used in the tutorial videos) that already has appliances and cabinets ready to go. Play around with 3d and reverse engineer the plan to get a quick start on your project.
