A home is the result of the homeowner's strenuous efforts in finding the right balance between costs, designs and spaces. Designing a home that is customized to suit a family's needs calls for a lot of careful forethought to include all the elements that are required without tilting the balance too much.
Although the sofa eyed on view in the store may be a couch of one's dreams, more times than less, once home it will look awkward and not fit in the room as imagined. Simply by making the proper preparations by having floor plans of the room or rooms shopping for one will know the sizes needed to perfectly decorate a beautiful abode.
A floor plan is about space deployment, or more specifically, the space you want (or need) for family members, guests, pets, entertaining and basic household operations (i.e. cooking, dining, laundry, storage, etc.).

One should work their way around the room and get into a measuring rhythm. Beginning at one corner, measure from one corner to inside the door or window frame. Then measure the door or window width. Now measure from the other side of the door or window along the wall to the next door or window. Measure the width of the door or window. Continue measuring until the measurements on each or the room's wall have been completely transcribed to the rough drawing. Measure column widths and where they are exactly placed in the room by measuring from perpendicular walls to the column.
