The layout of your current kitchen may not be well suited for your needs and preferences. You could lack sufficient counter space and cabinet storage space, or even dislike the placement of your appliances. Luckily, you have the option to come up with new kitchen designs able to fulfill your every requirement and provide you with the kitchen you have been dreaming about for a long time.

The first step to preparing kitchen designs is measuring the available square footage in the room. To calculate the square footage, measure the length of two adjacent walls, and take the results and multiple them together. For example, if one wall is 12 feet and other wall is 10 feet, the total square footage available is 120 feet. If you are planning on relocating your kitchen to a different area in your home, use the measurements from this room, not your existing kitchen. The next thing you should do is measure the widths, depths, and heights of your appliances, such as your refrigerator, dishwasher, and range. You need to know how much space these items are going to take up once they are placed into your new design.

To finalize your preparations, sketch a general layout of the floor space on a piece of paper. Add your measurements for the two adjacent walls you previously took. Now, add the location of windows and entry ways into the design. It is a good idea to measure from the corner of a wall, to the entrance or window, to know exactly where they need to be located in your design. Once you have all of this information gathered, you can start creating your own designs, or take advantage of our free design services, here at Best Online Cabinets.
