Our step-by-step guide to measuring your kitchen easily and accurately.
Your kitchen measurements will form the foundation of your design, so your designer will need to see a floor plan with measurements of the room before they can start creating your 3D kitchen design & quote.
For kitchen extensions with architect plans, send a screenshot instead of drawing a floor plan.
Without your kitchen measurements, your designer will be unable to provide you with an accurate design and quote in your consultation, leading to extra appointments or delays in the buying process. Please ensure you've shared them prior to the night before your consultation.
Sketch a rough outline of your kitchen’s shape, including any major structural features and protrusions.
You don’t need to be Picasso to do this or create an exact, to-scale drawing. The floor plan should be a bird’s eye view of the room that shows its shape and scale.
Mark any fixed details that your designer will need to design your kitchen around. This should include:
Grab your tape measure and measure the distance between each fixed point in the room, including windows and doors. You might find it helpful to label each measurement with a letter and create a key before you get started.
Be sure to include full wall measurements (end to end), the size and position of the windows, and how far doors are from the wall.
Your designer does not require measurements of existing kitchen furniture, e.g. worktops.
Please take a photo of each wall in your existing kitchen, as well as any areas you feel are a little complicated.
There are three ways to share your measurements with your designer.
