Measuring your space
Successful kitchen planning starts with accurate and precise measurements. Careful preparation at this stage will ensure a smooth process leading to a kitchen that will fit perfectly.
1 Start by measuring the overall length of all walls and the height from floor to ceiling and record these in millimetres on your plan.
2 Measure each window and door by detailing the floor to sill, the height and width and the distance from the ceiling and room corners remembering to include the frame.
3 Check for obstructions such as radiators, meters, extractors or ventilation grilles and detail these on the plan.
4 Note the position of any stop taps, water and gas pipes and outside drain that the waste pipe runs into.
5 Finally mark any existing power points and light switches on your plan.
