What Houzz contributors are saying:
Write it all downYou’ll need to stay ahead of the builders and have all the necessary information and materials ready for them as they carry out the work. This includes everything from kitchen units, worktops and floor finishes, to electrical and plumbing items and paint colours. It’s best to ask the builders in advance when they’ll need each item. Prepare a written list and estimate, and write down which elements are already included, what’s assumed and what’s excluded, as well as how long it will all take to complete.TELL US…Are you tempted to draw up your own plans?

Measure up accuratelyThe first thing you need to do is measure your current kitchen and dining space. Use metric measurements (metres) and include all doors, windows, fixed furniture, fuse boxes and the like. If you’re not adept at using a tape measure, ask for assistance – it’s important to get it right. “Measure twice, cut once” is the golden rule, and that might often mean getting a second opinion from whoever will be fitting your kitchen.
