Whether designing your dream kitchen from scratch or revamping an existing one, the best-laid plans start with accurate measurements, so it pays to be meticulous when measuring you space.
Walls and floors
Measure from the floor to the ceiling, the distance between walls, from the corners to the doors. Also, make a record of anything that projects into the room such as pipes, ventilation, special angles, and any other major architectural features.
Doors and windows
Measure the size of doors and windows, as well as the height and distance of each from the floor, ceiling, and edges. It is a good idea to mark onto your drawing the space that doors and windows need to swing open.
Sockets, switches, water connections, etc
So you’ve measured the big stuff. Now it’s time to look at the details. Note the location of existing electrical sockets, switches, water, and gas connections. Remember that these can be moved to suit your new kitchen. Mark down the approximate position of where you would like these new outlets, switches, and connections to be placed.
By following these few tips your kitchen will fit perfectly with the space you have and don’t worry if you decide to purchase you kitchen from a retailer they will perform a check measure before they manufacture your kitchen.
