Plan & Design

Plan and design your kitchen, taking all necessary measurements

Create design concepts that align with the needs, considering aesthetics, functionality, and space-saving features.

Measuring your space before ordering flat pack furniture is essential to ensure that the items you purchase will fit and look proportionate in your room. Here are some steps you can follow to measure your space accurately:

Take Room Measurements:

  • Use a tape measure to measure the length and width of the room where you plan to place the flat pack furniture.
  • Measure all the relevant walls and note down the dimensions in either inches or centimeters.

Consider Doorways and Hallways:

  • Measure the dimensions of doorways and hallways that the furniture will have to pass through to reach the intended room.
  • Make sure the furniture can fit through these spaces without any issues.

Account for Clearances:

  • Decide on the clearances you want to maintain around the furniture pieces to ensure they are not too close to walls or other items.
  • For example, if you are placing a bed against the wall, you might want to leave some space for bedside tables or movement.

Note Ceiling Height:

  • Measure the height of the ceiling to avoid getting furniture that might be too tall for the room.

Consider Windows and Outlets:

  • Take note of the positions of windows, electrical outlets, and heating/cooling vents in the room. This information will help you plan the placement of furniture to avoid blocking these elements.
    Check for Obstructions:
  • Identify any fixed obstructions like radiators, built-in shelving, or other elements that could impact where you place the furniture.

Create a Floor Plan:

  • Use graph paper or an online floor planning tool to create a scaled drawing of your room.
    Plot the measurements and the locations of windows, doors, and other fixed elements.

Compare with Furniture Dimensions:

  • Before ordering the flat pack furniture, check the product dimensions provided by the manufacturer.
    Compare the furniture dimensions with your room measurements and floor plan to ensure everything will fit well.
