I know, you’re going to tell me: this is not the first time you want to describe how to make house or apartment plans.
But that’s not what I want to do. I talked about creativity.
In fact, when you make a house plan, you often make square or rectangular pieces. For a simple reason: furniture is often square or rectangular.
Well, I tell you very frankly: this world is over and the future world is already here.
Why this statement? You seem to forget that technology is making progress every day.
When a craftsman in his workshop made a motor vehicle with wheels, and that vehicle managed to advance a few meters, who could have imagined at the time that we would have today millions of cars in the world, and highways, peripherals, traffic lights and tickets?
This major innovation is 3D printing. In the future, we will make houses with all possible forms because there are already machines that can make houses in 3D printing. And we can make furniture that fits perfectly in these houses because, yes, there are 3D prints for furniture. These machines already exist. It only misses their diffusion in very large numbers.
How to prepare for this event? Use the online archiplain software, and practice doing some very original house plans. For example, a house that looks like a flower seen from the sky, each petal being a room, or a house that looks like a rabbit (a room for each ear, and the garage in the legs).
When one wants to make a plan of house or apartment, one often thinks of the dwelling, but rarely with each piece taken individually.
We offer here a presentation of the bedroom.
First of all, you have to define the surface of this room. Indeed, this surface can be very variable. The smallest are only 100 square meters. But we can have a room of 1000 square meters.
A classic room has a door and a window, a closet and two bedside tables. When the rooms are larger, we can install a bathroom that leads directly to the room. Important, you have to think about the orientation of the sun.
Our ancestors always installed rooms facing east, where the sun rises. Thus, the rising sun allowed to wake up and the room could keep some freshness because it did not receive the important heat of the sun in the South and the West.
Then how to position the bed? Debates still exist on this subject, but a relative consensus says that the head of the bed (where our head is) must be in the North, in order to be in the direction of the magnetic waves.
Finally, once in your bed, you must be able to see the door and the window. It is a very old habit from the time when one lived in caves or wooden huts. Being able to see allows you to sleep more serenely and be ready in case an enemy enters your room.
If you are on this site, archiplain is that you are looking for news about architecture, design, or anything related to real estate. And in some cases, you are looking to make a house plan.
I wondered what is on Google when you type the keywords “Floor plan”. To be more rigorous, I looked for trends on Google Trends. And the result is very interesting. I focused on this expression and only on the American territory, precisely the United States. Here is the result :
CES Floor plan
World of concrete floor plan
Shot show floor plan
Hgtv dream home floor plan
Promat floor plan
Expo west floor plan
Isc west floor plan
Notre Dame floor plan
Surprisingly, we do not find the main software that can make house plans. There are mainly salons and congresses. And after analysis, it’s not so surprising.
Indeed, in most salons, there are many exhibitors and it is very difficult not to get lost. To avoid this, there is a website for each event in which a plan is found. And since there are many visitors, there is a lot of traffic on the site. In general, there is a page of the site called: “name of event” floor plan. That’s the explanation.
People who are looking to make a house plan can find instead many salons and congresses.
Two interesting remarks:
Anyone who needs to make a convention plan or salon plan can do it with archiplain quite easily.
On Google Trends, we find the sentence “Notre Dame Floor Plan”. This is not surprising because many people have launched architectural projects to redo the Notre Dame de Paris cathedral which burned.
When you put the question to people who are on the street: in your opinion, when were the chateaux built? I am sure they will answer from medieval times until the 18th century. If you ask the same question about churches, you will have about the same question. But that’s wrong, because we have continued to build castles and churches until now. It’s true that sometimes the result is surprising and sometimes, let’s say it, really ugly.
We must not generalize.
We present here several castles which are really modern and which still keeps some aesthetics.
First, a real beautiful castle with beautiful stone walls. Even if its general appearance is too new, after a few decades, it will be beautiful:
Then a castle with feet in the water:
Finally, the alliance of the modern and the old:
If you want to make a plan of a castle or a plan of a church or a cathedral (besides, one could launch a contest to make a plan of the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris), you can use the archiplain plan editor which you will vary several parameters for your greater satisfaction.
The question is: Is it possible to draw house plans without being an architect?
I’m sorry, but the question is badly asked (I know, it’s me who asked this question …).
In reality, it depends on the use you want to make of these plans.
If you want to make a house plan to give to workers who will build a bridge, or a building, or a dam, we can say that it is a little risky. This is not risky because of the plan that would be poorly done, because the house software is quite well done (you can test archiplain, very good product …). But it’s mostly a question of responsibility. If the workers hurt their work, if you have badly integrated some parts of the plan, the consequence can be disastrous.
On the other hand, if you want to make a house plan for yourself, to practice rooms, bathroom, dining room and all the furniture that is in these rooms, this kind of tool is very practical .
You have to choose a software tool that allows you to save plans. Like this, you can spend a few moments on a plan, then save it, and finally resume this plan later to complete it.
Let’s not forget the interest of putting colors in these plans. Architect’s plans are often black on a white background. The pieces in color are much more pleasant. we can put for example:
Blue in rooms like the bathroom and the toilet.
Warm red in the living rooms such as the dining room and the living room
Pastel yellow in the rooms
Take pleasure in making these plans, and if you make plans with lots of color, send them to the editor and we will be happy to publish them.
The real question is: how do I know who is interested in the house floor plan in the United States?
By doing research on Google trends, and stating the words floor plan, we see that the 5 cities that are most interested in these keywords are:
Interestingly, the most popular 5 related queries are:
House floor plan
Open floor plan
Floor plan design
Related queries 1, 2 and 5 are logical and directly dependent on the related query floor plan. More intriguing, the related query 4 focuses specifically on bedroom. Maybe that means that people are more interested in Bedroom, which is perhaps the most interesting room for them.
Finally, the related query 3 is surprising: open floor plan. Why are people interested in this?
By searching on Google with this expression, we find explanations: it is open spaces. This means that many people are looking to make open space plans. And finally, it makes sense. When you want to buy a big apartment and you want to break walls to make an open space, it is essential to make a plan of the apartment beforehand to avoid doing irremediable things.
This is a question that seems very simple and is not in reality.
Why that ? It depends on several parameters:
One of these parameters is the level of free. Because a software offers a free part and a paying part. If the free web part is very small, then we are quickly limited.
Another parameter is the type of tools present in the free web part, to compare with the tools in the paid web part.
Another parameter is the speed to make a house or apartment plan. If the software is slow, it quickly becomes annoying.
Another parameter is the accuracy of the measurements. If the measurements are not smaller than centimeters, what if we want millimeters?
Another thing: in the world, there are people who measure in feet, and others in centimeters. What if we want to go from one to another?
As you can see, comparing software is not easy.
We will not classify this software, but we will simply give you a list, for you to see:
First of all, it is necessary to delimit your ground to be sure that your swimming pool can be inside.
Then you have to choose your pool and size. You can do this for inspiration with the models proposed by archiplain:
And why not a spa:
You can add:
Parasol, striped of blue:
And to rest, you can install:
You can change the dimensions of each object, and even the pool.
How to find these objects to make your pool? In the Archiplain house plan editor, just click on Exteriors / pool
