Measuring Your Kitchen

kitchen_blueprint-blogTo help you get started on measuring your kitchen, you’ll find below our handy tips along with an example of a kitchen layout diagram.

Your measurements will help our team of kitchen designers plan the basic layout of your new kitchen. We’ll do our own measurements before we begin actually manufacturing your kitchen so don’t be concerned if your measurements are not entirely accurate.

To get started you’ll need:

  • A tape measure
  • Some graph paper

Begin by drawing an outline of your kitchen’s current layout. If you’re rebuilding and already have plans drawn up, we can work off those.

Measuring clockwise, record the overall length of each wall from corner to corner. Make a note of the measurement on the corresponding wall on your layout diagram. Continue around the room until all outside wall measurements have been taken.

Make a note of any windows and doors, along with measurements of these, on your layout diagram. Remember the trim or frame is considered part of the window or door so measure from the outside of the trim on one side to the outside on the other side.

Then measure the height of the room. Make a note of existing plumbing, electrical wall sockets and light switches. Identify appliances you plan on keeping and record the dimensions and location of each of these.
