Simple Guide to Create Your Basic Room Drawing

Since we won't be visiting your house, it is important that we have the basic layout and measurements for the remodel.

Below is a simple guide on how to measure your space(s) to provide just enough info we need and still make it as simple on homeowners as possible.


Drawing in pencil is much easier because you can erase if needed.

Bathroom Drawing

If you want to remodel your bathroom(s), draw the basic outline of your existing bathroom(s).

Your drawings DO NOT need to be to scale, and the lines don't even need to be straight. If you have graph paper that's great but plain paper is fine.

Step 1: Draw the walls of your bathroom on a piece of paper.

Step 2: Draw in your bathtub, shower, vanity, toilet, toilet room, and any closets if applicable. Feel free to draw the sink(s) with a simple oval or rectangle.

Step 3: Measure the walls, bathtub, shower, vanity, toilet, toilet room and any closets.  Please right down all measurements in inches and round up to the nearest inch.

Here are examples on how to draw bathrooms and show it doesn't need to be straight or look great:

Kitchen Drawing

Your drawings DO NOT need to be to scale, and the lines don't even need to be straight.

Step 1: Draw the walls of your kitchen on a piece of paper.

Step 2: Draw in your countertops, upper cabinets, sink, pantries and appliances.

Step 3: Measure the walls, both the front and back edges of countertops (shown in drawings below),  the length of your upper cabinets (lower cabinets should be about the same as countertops) and any closets or pantries.

Please right down all measurements in inches and round up to the nearest inch.

Note on measuring kitchen cabinets:

  • Don't worry about measuring the bottom "base" cabinets because the countertops should be close to the same and a picture will show us the difference (To save you time)
  • For the upper cabinets, include the total length of cabinets, regardless of how tall or short the upper cabinets are. Simply draw a small rectangle as shown in the drawings below and write UC in the rectangle to verify it is the upper cabinets.

Here is an example to show your kitchen and drawing doesn't need to be straight or look great:

Fireplace / Entertainment Wall Drawing

If you want to remodel your entertainment wall or fireplace area, draw the basic outline of your existing setup.

Your drawings DO NOT need to be to scale, and the lines don't even need to be straight.

Step 1: Draw the layout of the entertainment wall / fireplace on a piece of paper.

Step 2: Draw the location of the fireplace, mantle, cabinets, etc.

Step 3: Measure the amount of height and length of the entertainment wall or how much area you want the fireplace to be.  Measure the fireplace, mantle length and distance of the mantle from the floor (see drawing below). Please right down all measurements in inches and round up to the nearest inch.

Here are 2 examples to show your entertainment wall / fireplace drawing does not need to be straight or look great:
