How is it done? Here is how to design a kitchen online using one of the online kitchen design services offered by some kitchen cabinet manufacturers. Keep in mind that when doing this, your cooker, oven or hob is not included, and neither are washing machines and dishwashers. You must make space for these in your design. Here is what you have to do: Draw Up a Floor Plan _ First measure the size of your kitchen: the width of each wall and the floor area available and draw a diagram of this to scale. It is easy to do if you use graph paper or your supplier may offer a floor plan service. You can then select the various cabinets fit the space available to you. Leave free wall space for a table and floor cooker unit if you need them, and identify the space you want filled with kitchen units.
Investing in Energy Efficient Equipment _ When you're acquiring new cooking equipment, think about the whole product life_cycle costs, which ideally should include the acquisition price, and the annual costs of energy plus any other long_term expenses linked with that particular equipment. In addition, make sure it meets the Australian Institute of Environmental Health recommended Food Premises and Equipment Standards.
