Design your kitchen – Get Started

Design your kitchen – Simple steps to getting started.

When you design your kitchen for a remodel you can start with some basic requirements to help get you started.

The first task to do is do a simple overhead floor plan. Use grid paper to easily space each item on the page. If you don’t have grid paper you can make grids easily with a pencil and ruler. You will be using either two boxes for the depth of lower cabinets and one box depth for upper cabinets -or- four boxes for the depth of lower cabinets and two boxes for the depth of the upper cabinets(2 boxes per foot).

 

Measure out your space of the kitchen remodel. Make a rectangle with the length of the wall measurement written down. Next you will want to add doorways and window locations. Be sure to indicate the height of the window off the floor. Windows lower than 36″ from the floor do not usually get cabinets and counters.

With the room dimensions and shape written down it is time to add cabinet locations. Draw all locations where it is possible to add lower cabinets. Size of lower cabinets will be 2 boxes for 12″ boxes and 4 boxes if you are using the 6″ boxes (2 boxes per foot).

The next items to go into your drawing will be the kitchen sink which is usually under the window and the refrigerator. Be sure not to place the refrigerator up against a wall as this makes it somewhat difficult to open doors. With the sink and refrigerator placed it should be easy to place the stove or cooktop. If your kitchen is big enough to accommodate a wall oven or pantry cabinet (floor to ceiling) then it is best to place these cabinets next to the refrigerator.

Plan on keeping the cabinet above the refrigerator the same depth as the lower cabinets. Draw your upper cabinets wherever possible on the walls above the lower cabinets. Design your kitchen should now be looking complete.

You should now have a drawing showing the kitchen area with lower and upper cabinets shown at every possible location. There may be places that cabinets are not practical and they should be eliminated.
