Part 1: What is Floor Plan?

Floor plans are used in architecture and engineering to map out the scaled dimensions of all the different rooms and components of a structure. A floor plan will typically include all of the different rooms, windows and exit points of a structure. It may also include more in-depth features, such as furniture.

A floor plan makes it easy for one to visualise the space in a structure, as gives readers an idea of its scale. This allows you to make informed judgments about whether a room is fit for purpose.
