Tips for Making Floor Plan Drawings

The floor plan drawing usually shows a view from above of the relationships between rooms, spaces, and other physical features at one level of a structure. You can use floor plan drawings to recreate the layout of your home, garden, or office in just a few clicks and furnish your plans from a massive library of floor plan symbols. Below are some useful tips for making floor plan drawings, and we hope these can be helpful for you.

Floor Plan Drawing

Tip 1: Think carefully about what kind of room or space you want. Consider where your home is situated, particularly the orientation and view.

Tip 2: Plan traffic flows to increase convenience from room to room. Notice the current circulation patterns in your home. You should be able to move about from space to space without obstacles blocking you.

Tip 3: Look for visual connections from space to space. Make sure the foyer is centrally situated and is easily accessible from all areas of the house. A closet near the entry is a great convenience.

Tip 4: The path from the garage and/or laundry room to the kitchen should be short and direct, especially for unloading groceries.

Tip 5: Having relationships between spaces creates a more inviting and workable environment. Keep traffic and circulation off to one side of the room and not through the area.

Planning and designing is the most creative part of any home renovation, remodel, or addition project, as it allows you to express yourself genuinely and honestly and make your dream space into reality.
