Step 2 – Adding a kitchen

Kitchen step by step guide

This guide will show you how to add kitchen units and set up a basic 1 sided kitchen.

 First, click the ‘Home’ icon in the top left to show the menu.

Click the home Icon

Click ‘Catalogue’

Catalogue

Click ‘Base Units’ to bring up a list of our base units.

Base Units

You should now see a list of subsections. Next to each subsection will be a down arrow. Clicking this will open up the section to allow you to view the items.

Click the down arrow next to ‘— Base Unit’.

Base unit expand

You should now see two base unit types. Single door and double door. Next to each unit will be the different width sizes (300mm, 400mm, 450mm, 500mm and 600mm).

In this example, we will add a 600mm wide single door base unit. To do this, click the 600mm button then drag the unit onto your back wall (close to the right wall).

Click the base unit to select it.

Click base unit

Next, you will enter the distance you would like it to be from the right wall. We recommend a minimum of 25mm to 100mm space. The reason for this is because we will add a filler panel as most walls will not run true (straight) and other obstacles will likely be in the way (e.g. a skirting board).

For this guide, enter 50mm.

Next, scroll down and add the right filler panel.

Click anywhere on the wall or floor to de-select the unit.

Next, an appliance base unit will be added (e.g. fridge/dishwasher). Scroll down and click the ‘– Appliance’ link.

With the oven selected, scroll down on the left menu and tick the ‘hob’ switch.

 Oven Hob

This will now open up options to allow you to select the hob type you require.

Hob Select

Once you have clicked the hob that you require, de-select the oven (by clicking on any blank space of floor or wall).

The space that you have left should now be around 1200mm. This is enough space for one 600mm base unit and one 600mm tall housing.

Under the ‘– Base unit with drawer’ section, drag in a 600mm kitchen base unit with drawer as you did earlier.

As this unit is next to the wall, you need to change the way the doors open. To do this, change the “hinge orientation” from right to left in the menu.
