How to Measure Your Space

Measuring your space

Getting your right measurements is vital to a successful remodel. It can mean the difference between a kitchen that fits and one that doesn’t. We can help you with the guide below.

Once you have your room measured, you can e-mail them to us. You can also send us your house plans for help with any of your new rooms!

1 MEASURE YOUR ROOM

To start, measure the outline of the room by measuring the walls, between each corner.

2 MEASURE ROOM FEATURES

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.

3 MEASURE ROOM OPENINGS

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.

4 MARK POWER OUTLETS

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.

5 MARK WATER SUPPLY AND DRAINAGE

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.

6 MEASURE CEILING HEIGHT IN MULTIPLE LOCATIONS

Believe it or not, your ceiling heights will vary in you room. Measuring in several places help to determine the lowest points in your room. Start in a few corners of the room and measure a couple of spots in the centre of the room. Mark them on the plan as well.
