Grab some paper and lets start with measuring the outline of the room. Measure the length of each wall from corner to corner. Be sure to mark any corners which aren’t 90 degrees.
Measure the height from the floor to the ceiling. Don’t forget to include the measurements of any bulkheads that may be in your current space.
Measure anything that sticks out such as pillars, other shallow walls, pipes, vents, lights etc. Measure the distance they are from corners, the floor and the ceiling.
Next, measure and draw up any windows or doors. Include the width and height and also depth of any sills or reveals. Very importantly, make a note of the height of the window from the floor and distance from other items like corners or other doors or windows. 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 the floor, and mark it clearly on your drawing. If you are prepared to have your power outlets moved, make a note of where they could go.
Last but not least, measure and mark where your water supply comes in and 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.
