PLANNING YOUR NEW KITCHEN
PLANNING & DESIGN
LAYOUT CONSIDERATIONS FOR YOUR KITCHEN RENOVATION
- Consider placement of pipes, vents, electricity outlets and switches.
- Allow at least 300mm clearance either side of your cooktop and sink.
- Standard floor units are 720mm high plus 150mm (for the kickboard), and 580mm deep. Wall units are 720mm high and 350mm deep (not including handles). Benchtop height, from floor to top of bench, is 900mm and depth is 600mm.
- The splashback over an electric cooktop should be a minimum of 450mm high if it’s under a wall unit. If the splashback is under a rangehood or a sink with wall unit above it, the splashback should be a minimum of 600mm high. Minimum height of a rangehood above a gas hob is 650-750mm, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendation.
- Include as much working space as possible.
- Consider a walk-in pantry. This would maximise storage for a small kitchen.
