This page will guide you through the design and planning process of your kitchen. Here, you will find step-by-step instructions on how to measure your kitchen or bathroom, and how to create the floor plan you will use to create your new room. We recommend that you download our kitchen design grid paper to sketch your kitchen layout.
Follow these steps in sequence around your room until you return to the starting point.
- Measure in inches only.
- Do not measure your cabinets. Measure your walls as if the room were empty.
- Measure any appliances that you are keeping and note their locations. This will ensure that your new kitchen is compatible with the appliances you intend to use.
- Keep in mind the measurements of any new appliances you plan to add to your kitchen. For example, a refrigerator needs at least 1/2" to 1" of clearance on both sides. If you are not sure, obtain the exact measurements and clearance specifications of your new appliances before you begin.
