Sketch the basic shape of your kitchen. Make sure you indicate any obstacles or structural features such as vents, columns, and outlets.

Next, you need to draw all of your doorways, windows, and other features that determine your possible layouts. Be sure you are clearly labeling each section so you know which cabinets will go where

Step 3: Measure

For step three, you will need to get out a tape measure. You will need to record measurements for all the openings and sections you have labeled in the previous step. You should measure from outside edge to outside edge, rounding up to the nearest inch if needed. 

Step 4: Add Your Appliances

Finally, add your appliance to the sketch. You will want to clearly mark where the sink, dishwasher, refrigerator, and stove are located. Also, be sure to include the measurements for the appliances
