Are you still worrying about how to create reflected ceiling plan? This guide will show you how to create reflected ceiling plan for your dream house step by step.

What is a Reflected Ceiling Plan?

Do you think a reflected ceiling plan is similar to a reflection of a floor plan? If you think so, I am sorry to tell you that you may get it wrong. As a part of architectural drawings, a reflected ceiling plan consists of various components you can see or cannot see on the ceiling, such as lighting, sprinklers, smoke detectors, wires, etc.

Symbols of Reflected Ceiling Plan

Before creating your own reflected ceiling plan, we need to learn its symbols. Generally, a well-designed reflected plan needs the same symbols as what a home plan needs, to name it a few, light symbols, electrical & telecom symbols, qualifying symbols, etc.
