- Start at the corners and measure the length and width of the kitchen. It's OK to round off the dimensions and measurements to the nearest 1/2 inch. Fr a final drawing, it is better to be more precise and round down to the nearest half inch.
- The next step is the measure the space between all the elements you have noted. Be sure to record all the measurements on your drawing as you proceed. It;s best to measure in inches (rather than feet).
- Check to see if the individually recorded measurements/distances along each wall add up to the total length you had recorded. Also make sure the total measurement of opposite walls is equal. If not, check your work.
- Draw an elevation view of each wall in the kitchen. To do this measure the height of the ceilings, doors, windows, cabinets, appliances and other such elements. If there is a vaulted ceiling or varying ceiling heights, note this.
