How to draw a floor plan

Real estate and property news, just for you!

It’s simple, and at the same time it’s not easy. One could say that one must take courses in architecture. Indeed, we can do that. But it is not necessary at all.

If you want to build a small wall around your house, do you have to study for several years to be a mason? If you want to make a small flower garden, do you have to study to be a landscaper? If you want to repair your sink, should you study to be a plumber?

Floor plan 1

To all these questions, the answer is obviously no.

In fact, to draw a floor plan, it is not very difficult. If you use the online house plan software on this website, you will see that in just a few minutes you will have made your first house plan. And there will be all that is needed to make this plan:

  • Walls
  • Windows
  • Doors
  • Furniture

You can indicate the name of each room, give them the color you want, indicate the measures, and many other things.

Of course, if you want to build a much larger building, such as a school, a nursery, an administrative building, an industrial building, then you will have to respect many standards because it is necessary to respect the rules, in particular of safety. But even in this case, you will need to make several plans before entrusting the project to an architect who will ask you for more money if you leave the project from the beginning without plan.

First of all, if you want to draw a floor plan, it’s because you have at least two floors in your plan … Otherwise, you have to draw a house plan or an apartment plan…

First thing to do: take the exact measurements of your floor. You have laser systems that are very accurate and inexpensive and that allow you to measure the length, width, and area of each room.

Then, do not forget to measure all the small surfaces like:

  • The passage from one room to another
  • The cupboards
  • The passages of windows
  • The spaces under the stairs

All these measures will be useful for you to draw the plan of your floor.

At this point, you need efficient and accurate software to draw the floor plan. Of course, we prefer the software archiplain that allows you to do all this. Advantage of this software: it calculates in metric system or English customary measures. And he is very precise. Last point: it is free and can be used very quickly. But of course, you can use any other system to draw your plan.

Finally, keep copies of each of your plans. You know, it’s often said that your house is perfect from the third building. It’s the same for house plans: you have to make multiple copies to get the best plan. And sometimes it’s not the last plan that’s the best.

And now, start your floor plans and indulge yourself!
