Sketch a diagram of your kitchen, with all the walls, windows, entrances and exits shown. Measure all the sides that you have sketched in mm.
Measure the height to the ceiling from the floor and make a note of this on your diagram.
Measure the distance between walls (i.e. the length of each wall) and plot them onto your diagram.
Measure the dimensions of fixtures, such as doors and windows, and how far they are from the walls, floor and ceiling (remember to include the frames in your measurements).
Sketch all plugs, light switches, light fixtures, stove
and other electrical points that need to be marked (if you plan on relocating them make a note of the new positions on your diagram).
Jot down anything that sticks out into the room, such as ventilation shafts and pipes. Note the position of your drains, water supply and other plumbing points. If you are planning to relocate these, mark their new positions.
We recommend the following when completing step 5&6:
• Start at the top left-hand corner of your sketch and continue to plot these points moving clockwise until you reach the top left-hand corner again.
• Remember to measure the respective distances from the corner of the walls.
