Floor Plan Drawings – Types, Symbols, and Examples

Everything you need to know about floor plans, from different types of drawings and usable symbols to how to create a drawing and various examples.

Floor plan drawings

What is a floor plan drawing?

A floor plan drawing is a type of drawing that shows how a home or property looks from above. A floor plan usually shows walls, windows, doors, and stairs as well as fixed installations such as bathroom fittings, cooker hoods, and appliances. Plans are usually drawn to scale and indicate orientation, room types, area, dimensions, and carpeting on the walls. They can also show furnishing and outdoor areas.

The difference between a floor plan and a floor plan drawing 

It is not unusual for people to confuse the concepts of planning and planning, simply because they are very similar terms. So, what is a floor plan and how does it differ from a floor plan?

A floor plan is a scaled diagram of a room or building seen from above. The floor plan is often said to be the “map to a layout” and can depict an entire house, a room in a villa, or a simple room in a condominium. A floor plan aims at dividing the living space into rooms and spaces with bare or intermediate walls.

A floor plan drawing demonstrates all parts of the home and clearly shows how big the different rooms are and what they are intended for. If the property consists of several uses, these must be shown separately. Floor plan drawings are usually drawn to a scale of 1:100, which meant that 1 cm on paper represents 100 cm in reality. If a floor plan is to be changed in connection with a renovation, this needs to be clearly stated through an updated version of the floor plan where the specific change is illustrated.

3D Floor Plan

What should a floor plan drawing contain?

Do you have the things that should be included in a floor plan for a villa, team unit and other buildings:

All rooms of the residence on the respective floor (i.e. a floor plan must show the bathroom, kitchen, laundry room, etc.)

The different functions of the rooms in the form of kitchen and bathroom furnishings, etc.

The home’s total area and size for the respective habitation and space

Illustration of where doors, windows, openings and other details are found

3D Floor Plan

The importance of good floor plan drawings

According to an American research report, 81% of house buyers asked, state that they are more inclined to look at a house if the prospectus contains a floor plan that they like. Floor plans are an important part of the marketing of properties, as well as in housing construction, interior design and architectural projects. A floor plan shows the relationship between different rooms, and possible furnishing, and gives an image of how to move around the property.

2D Floor Plans

A 2D floor plan is a type of drawing that shows the layout of a space seen from above, including walls and rooms. 2D meant that the floor plan is “flat”, without perspective or depth. A 2D floor plan can be a sketch, a hard copy or a computer drawing.

3D Floor Plans

A 3D floor plan is a type of drawing that shows the layout of a home or property in 3D. 3D meant that the floor plan shows both perspective and elevation. Unlike a 2D floor plan, a 3D floor plan has more details and makes it easier to understand and create an image of the space.

So you create Floor Plans

There are two simple sets to create floor plans. Either you use a program to create floor plans yourself or you demand floor plans from an Architectural Studio as a drawing service. You can easily create high-quality floor plans yourself with the help of a floor plan program – you don’t need to be a professional to succeed. Often you don’t need to invest more than 10 minutes of your time to learn the program, then you create floor plans in no time.

Order floor plans from a drawing service

If you have an existing sketch of the home or property, you can take the help of an Architectural Studio drafting service to convert it into professional floor plan drawings. Just send in the sketch, and the floor plan will be ready the next working day. The best services offer a solution where you can easily edit the finished drawing.
