Measuring Your Kitchen

Getting your room measurements correct is important – it can be the difference between a kitchen that fits and one that doesn’t.
But we can help you with the guide below or we can help by visiting your home and helping you measure your space.

Once you have your kitchen measurements, you can bring them into any of our kitchen showrooms, or arrange an online appointment, so we can begin helping you to design your new kitchen. You can also bring in your new home plans at any time to get started on a design for your brand new kitchen!

1. YOUR KITCHEN OUTLINE

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.

2. HEIGHT OF YOUR ROOM

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.

3. ROOM FEATURES

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.

4. ROOM OPENINGS

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.

5. POWER OUTLETS

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.

6. WATER SUPPLY & DRAINAGE

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.
