Now add in the general location of your appliances, sink, microwave, refrigerator and etc. Make note of their width as well, standard stoves are typically 36″ wide but it’s good to double check.
Measure all of your walls. If there are any obstacles like fireplaces please place those in your measurements as well. Also include the height of the room and any soffits (the parts of the ceiling that step down, often above a cabinet). Measure the height of soffits from both the ceiling and the floor.
Make a note of how wide your windows and doors are, also how tall they are. Then measure from the outside of the trim of your window or door to the edge of the wall and note those on your sketch.
Note where you might have a waterline, drain line, gas line or an electrical outlet. Then take a several pictures making sure to include the entire space, 2 – 4 pictures will do making sure we see each side of the kitchen.
