We’ve designed an electronic kitchen planner to help you design your new kitchen. Please use the tool in association with a professional kitchen planner and make sure they check your measurements before purchasing.
There are 7 steps on the electronic planner:-
Step 1: Your kitchen shape – choose the shape that matches your kitchen and then adjust the room size to match. The room shape is accurate to within 6/7mm so we recommend a professional planner checks your design before purchasing.
Step 2: Doors and windows – at this stage you can position any doors, windows, radiators or other obstructions that already exist in your kitchen.
Step 3: Style – choose the kitchen finish.
Steps 4-7: Units – add the kitchen units, sinks and worktops to the plan to help
At any stage you can print off your plans and shopping list

Before you start, you’ll need to carefully measure up your kitchen. Work to the nearest millimetre and think about the space in your room for appliances too. Remember not all walls are square – take care to measure at three different height levels suggested below and then use the smallest:
Remember the location of the following will help when planning and fitting your kitchen:
For safety reasons, cookers must not be positioned under windows or behind inward opening doors.Cooker hoods must be a minimum of 650mm above an electric hob and 750mm above a gas hob. Some big range cookers stipulate a minimum of 800mm. A hob should have a minimum of 200mm workspace either side and current building regulations stipulate that adequate air extraction is in place too.
Think about everything you use your kitchen for – preparing food, cooking, and storage. These activities are known as your ‘working triangle’. Getting the right layout is important, as you need to make sure your workspace is not only safe but is right for your lifestyle.
You’ll be using them every day, so pay careful attention to choosing your sink and worktops. Our sinks are available in two stainless steel options, while our laminate worktops come in Everest, Granite, Beech and Light Walnut.
