We’ve designed an electronic planner to help you plan your new kitchen.
There are 7 easy steps each explained within the planner, making it easy for you to design your perfect kitchen.
Alternatively we’ve designed a PDF kitchen planner that you can download and print off to plan your new kitchen.
Measuring your kitchen
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.
All gas and electricity work must be carried out by a registered installer. For all gas safety advise, please visit the website www.gassaferegister.co.uk or contact them on 0800 408 5500. (Argos.co.uk is not responsible for the content of external websites.)
