Whether you’re remodeling your kitchen or replacing your old appliances, it is always a haunting job. The only way you can make your kitchen remodeling or replacement appliances a success, then the only secret you need to know is that you must be meticulous with the planning and measurements. Being off by even an inch is off the charts. Inaccurate measurements are the best way to get the most memorable headache of your life.

Also deciding where to get all your appliances is a big decision as well. Fortunately, nowadays brands have their customized home appliances range you can choose from and they ship internationally as well. If you are in the Philippines, you can surf their website and choose a collection and the website will auto-detect your location and give you an option saying buy refrigerators in Philippines. But you have to make sure your kitchen is right for the appliances to fit in. Here are some tips to make sure you get your kitchen remodeling done perfectly at once.

Kitchen Renovation


Always start measuring from the walls. Start with your left-hand side and mark it as #1, wall #2 is the one with the sink, #3 is the wall on your right, and the one on your back is #4. Then move on to measure the floor exactly to the length of each of the walls. The next step must be measuring halfway up through your wall. In case your kitchen has space between the cabinets, make sure you measure them as well.


Face to your left-hand side and start measuring both the size of the doorway and the location as well. Measuring from the left-hand side increases accuracy and ensures you have the perfect measurement. Start with the left-hand side of every wall that has a door by marking a spot halfway up the wall and measuring from there till the trims of the doorway. Measure the length and width of the door including the trims. In case you have multiple doors, measure each door separately, and don’t forget the trims.


Again, start from your left-hand side and measure the distance between the corner of the wall and the edge of the window trim. Measure the length and breadth of the windows both with and without the trims. The last measurement should be the distance between the floor and the bottom edge of the window trim.

Pipes, Vents, Outlets, and Switches

These measurements are the most crucial ones. If you even miss by an inch, either you have to change the whole set or else, change the whole wiring system. Once again, you should start with the left-hand side and mark off the space that is occupied and make a blueprint of it. This time, you have to specifically measure from the center of every item including the pipings, drainage, venting, and ductwork as well.


With these measurement tips, you can draw an accurate layout of your kitchen and play around with the appliances by setting them up in different locations to see what works best for you. The only thing that you now need to take care of is remembering where the power outlets and the switches are because missing them would need you a whole other remodeling plan to balance things out.
