To start, measure the outline of the room by measuring the walls, between each corner.
Measure anything that sticks out such as pillars, other shallow walls, pipes etc. Also measure the floor to ceiling and include any bulkhead dimensions. Mark them all on your drawing.
Then measure and draw up any window or door. Include the widths and heights and also depths of sills or reveals. Very importantly, make a note of the height of the window from the floor. This will indicate if your benchtop is also your windowsill.
Check the position of power outlets, lights switches, aircon or security switches. Measure the distance from a corner and mark it clearly on your drawing. If you are prepared to have these moved, make a note of where they could go.
Last but not least, measure and mark where your water supply comes in and very importantly, where the waste is. If the waste pipe goes out of the wall or goes straight into the floor, you will need to know, especially if you are going to include a dishwasher.
If you are unsure of anything, a photo can speak a thousand words! Take a photo. Our team of designers will undoubtedly have come across if before, and will be able to put your mind at ease.
