Design tools

If you're planning on doing your own kitchen design, then you'll need to know what the best kitchen design tools are and where you can find them. Here's a quick guide.

Probably the most useful kitchen design tool available is a tape measure. If you're going to plan your kitchen then you need to measure every inch of space. At the very least you need to know the height, width and length of your kitchen. Also take measurements of any recesses or awkward shapes in the kitchen. This will help you make the most of every inch of space you have available.

Once you've got your measurements down, one kitchen design tool you can't go wrong with is a pencil. Use it to make lists of the essential elements of your kitchen design and then to make sketches of how you'd like to have things laid out. Make sure you also know where you plumbing and electricity outlets are. After all, you might think differently about your layout if it means ripping your plumbing out and moving it around.

A modern kitchen design tool is a 3D kitchen planner which allows you to turn your crude sketch into a vibrant 3D image that shows you exactly how your finished design might look. This tool is also useful for showing possible design flaws so you can iron them out before it's too late.

The internet as a whole is a great kitchen design tool. Not only are there great resources available for advice (like here) but there's also kitchen design software as already mentioned and online kitchen galleries where you can get all kinds of ideas and inspiration to help you build your dream kitchen.
