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.Download graph paper here
