which kitchen layout program do you use?

The pics of my layout in my other post apparently are difficult to see. I'd like to try using a layout program on the computer, but my efforts this past weekend ended in pure frustration. Anyone with a recommendation for a fairly easy one? I tried just drawing on graph paper, but I have a bad hand, so it's difficult to hold a pencil (perhaps I can recruit my daughter to do it after school today) :)

Try the Ikea one for something very basic. Or Sketch Up. Both are free. For paid, the homeowner version of Chief Architect, usually labeled with BH&G's label is pretty easy to learn.

A graph paper with a ruler and a sharpie is often the easiest. Get it draw up with measurements then make copies of it . You can redraw as needed.
