Measuring accurately is no rocket science but applying a few tricks to this task gives you excellent results.
Tricks to Measure Your Kitchen Like A Pro
With a little help from us anyone can measure a kitchen like a pro. We are focusing on the kitchen right now as it is known to be the most complex room to measure. Keep the bigger picture in mind, take care of all the nick-knacks and see your ‘dream kitchen’ take shape. To achieve this you must:
Keep your measurements in inches at all times.
Draw the door designs keeping in mind the direction the door will swing.
If you have to work around existing kitchen furniture do keep that in mind. Additionally don’t forget to take measurements of tables or other furniture that you would want to include in your new kitchen. If possible take photographs because their optimum placement is part of any design process keeping progress on track.
Indicate the exact position for the cooking range, wall-oven and microwave. Indicate whether these gadgets run on gas or electricity. This aids in apt placements. Also keep in mind the additional 230v outlets or gas lines coming into the kitchen if any.
Prioritize on the list all the features that the space would include.
Dream as big as you like. You might just be able to work it in.
Eventually you will settle on a concept and a budget that works for you.
