Step 1: Measure Your Space

To complete this step, you will need:

  • 25″ Retractable Steel Tape Measure
  • Pencil (Preferably Colored)
  • Eraser
  • Note Pad and Clipboard
  • Small Step Ladder (If Possible)

A good kitchen design begins with having accurate measurements. You will first want to decide what you need, what you want, and what existing items you would like to incorporate into your new kitchen. By drawing a preliminary room outline and floor plan, you will help others understand your ideas. Don’t worry, your drawings don’t have to be works of art – just clear, simple sketches.
