HOW TO MEASURE YOUR SPACE ?
Accurate measurements as indicated in the measuring procedure are the key elements we will need to plan your new house. With this information, our specialists will be able to help design your dream new house!
Use kitchen space for example to explain measure steps below:
A tape measure, pencil and paper: preferably graph paper for ease of drawing
Draw a rough outline of your kitchen, record the overall length of each wall, label walls, pillars, windows and doors. Remember to measure clockwise.
Measure the ceiling height and write it in the center of your drawing. Ceiling heights, even in the same room, can sometimes vary by as much as several inches. It is better to take measurement in different areas of kitchen. If it varies, write down both the low and high measurements.
You can begin at the left corner of wall A to measure the first window, door, or wall. Continue clockwise around the room until each wall, window and door has been measured.
Draw in any obstructions, such as electric outlets, lights switches, sink plumbing, gas meter, gas duct, etc., that you either cannot move or do not want to move. Remember, measure clockwise too. Measure the obstruction and record the width, height, depth and distance to wall or floor of the obstruction on your drawing.
TIPS: Label of doors, pillars and windows is purple lines with word; label of unmovable obstructions is black dotted lines with number which show in wall A/B/C/D below.
TIPS: No need to measure wall B because of no room for cabinet.
a- Width and depth of pillar
b- Height and depth of beam
c- Height from wall to door side
d- Distance from door top to ceiling
e- Distance from wall to window side
f- Height from window still to floor and window top to ceiling
① – Distance from wall to gas meter side
② – Height of gas meter
③ – Distance from wall to electric outlets
④ – Height of electric outlets
⑤ – Distance from wall to sink plumbing
⑥ – Height of sink plumbing
⑦ – Distance from wall to gas duct
⑧ – Height of gas duct
