One free option is to bring your exact kitchen measurements to Ikea’s kitchen department and use one of their computers to make your Ikea kitchen design. They will not do it for you, but will answer your questions and guide you through it. Depending on how busy they are, be prepared to wait some time to be helped.
Once your Ikea kitchen design is complete, make sure to save it under your username and password. That way, you can open it elsewhere and/or email it to others.
If you pay for your design, you should also get it via Ikea home planner, so you can save it under your account. Some companies try to hold you on their site so you don’t shop around. If you pay for the design than it is yours and they must give it to you. You should also receive the PDF file as an email attachment. You can print the plan with measurements (or forward the email) for, let’s say, countertop estimate etc.
