Designing your room starts with the measurements. We need two types of measurements i.e. 1. of the floor space and 2. of wall area. Read this quick guide to measuring before you start to make sure you include all the details we need.
Diagram 1 - the floor plan
Measure each individual wall, including window openings. Your space could be square, T-shaped or L shaped, as shown.
Mark on where all the windows and doors are as well as which way they open, noting whether they are external or internal doors.
Add in electrical sockets and any existing plumbing as well as fixed objects such as boilers, radiators, or boxed-in pipes.
Diagram 2 - the wall plan
Your new room may have a sloping ceiling or be a room with eaves. Make sure you measure the tallest and shortest heights as well as how far into your room the eaves extend.
Measure between the floor and the bottom part of your windows
Measure between floor and electrical plug points.
Show size of openings i.e. door height or width and window height or width
List dimensions of appliances or other items that you want to use in the space and pictures of it.
