Top Tips

If you are remodeling, do not include in your measurements current cabinetry or other furniture that will not be kept, such as kitchen tables.

When measuring doors and windows the trim is considered part of the door or window. measure from the outside of the trim on one side to the outside of the trim on the other side.

All of your measurements should be in millimeters. for example, if you measure a wall that is 120cm write it as 1200mm.

Step 1:

Draw a rough outline of your kitchen. use symbols in your drawing for doors and windows.

note: for doorways with doors, draw the doorway according to which way the door swings.

Step 2:

Beginning at the top left corner of your drawing measure to the first window, door, or wall. continue
clockwise around the room until each wall, window and door has been measured.

Measure the ceiling height and write it in the center of your drawing. sometimes, especially with
older homes, it is a good idea to take measurements in a few different areas of the kitchen. ceiling
heights, even in the same room, can sometimes vary by as much as a few inches.

Measure from the floor to the bottom of each window and also measure the overall window height.

Step 3:

Draw in any obstructions, such as radiators, pipes, sink plumbing, etc., that you either cannot
move or do not want to move.

If a wall is an exterior wall, label it as so on the plan.

Step 4:

Measure any obstructions such as radiators, pipes, etc. that you either can not, or do not, want
moved. if the obstruction is close to a wall, measure out from the wall to the edge of the obstruction.

Measure from the second closest wall to the edge of the obstruction.

If the obstruction does not span the full height of the room, measure the height of the obstruction.
