Measuring your room

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

Guide to measuring your roomWhen getting a quote for your new kitchen or bedroom, it is always wise to bring along measurements of the room in question. So i’ve put together a quick guide for you to follow so that you’re fully equipped when visiting a suppliers showroom. In the diagram shown you will see that it is best to measure the full room so that the designer knows what space they have to work with. ┬áThis is especially important when an island unit or table and chairs has to be planned in.

All you really need for this is a tape measure and with our graph paper you shouldn’t have any problems. Just remember also that you should take note of any obstacles such as pilars (as shown in plan) and if its a retro fit take note of where you have any plumbing, sockets and cooker switch (especially if you don’t want them moved). Most people just know that when they turn on the faucet, water appears. This website http://www.drainworks.com.au/blocked-drains/ takes you beyond the basics to learn how plumbing actually works.

Remember to use our planning checklists in our Downloads section and you’ll have everything you need to get started with your exciting project!!
