How to measure your kitchen.
Kick off your kitchen journey by sending us a drawing of your space with accurate measurements. This will really help when we start working together on a design for your new kitchen. We will be able to provide you with better layout options and a detailed price during your first design appointment. Here are some great tips for accurate measuring and space planning.
To begin, download our grid paper here or you can go ahead and use any paper and sketch your room as a simple box, detailing all areas that will contain kitchen cabinets and appliances – be sure this includes any major structural features and protrusions.
Make a note of any openings in your room – knowing where doors, windows and archways are will help us get your design just right. Tell us where any sewer pipes, hot water systems, electrical meters, gas meters, fuse boxes, air conditioning ducts are in case they impact on the space where kitchen cabinets and appliances will be going.
Before measuring, label all the critical areas on your plan (for example A, B, C, etc), including any window and door measurements. Alongside your plan write the same letters as a key, then simply grab your tape measure and fill in the relevant measurements i.e. A=, B= etc.
Most people already have an idea of the kind of kitchen shape they want. If you’re one of them be sure to sketch out your rough design. Also, make a note of all key elements such as any appliances and the position of your sink.
Remember this is just to get us started. We’ll do our own, more thorough measuring at a later stage, if required, so don’t panic if yours isn’t millimetre perfect. Whether using millimetres or centimetres be consistent and use the same throughout.
