Floor plans are as easy as following the lines on graph paper. A floor plan is a scaled version of a space on paper complete with furniture and accessories. The plan begins with taking proper measurements of a room and any furnishings that are to stay in the given room. A few simple supplies are needed to begin the journey of making a basic floor plan. A tape measure. Pencil. Scrap paper. Graph paper
Create a list of all the spaces or functions you will need or want in your home. Many people confuse this with how many rooms do you need, we will get to that in a minute. It is common for people to feel the need for more specific rooms than they actually need once they assess how they can multi_purpose some rooms. From here you will create a list of rooms like number of bedrooms and bathrooms that you need and this list might be slightly different than you originally thought of. This is a good time to entertain the question of whether you really have to have all the bedrooms on one floor or not remembering the concept that multi_level space costs less.
Begin with measuring. Do a very rough drawing, on a piece of scrap paper for measuring purposes only, of your room showing walls and openings for doors, windows and fireplaces. Note where columns and built_in cabinetry are in the room as well. Take out the measuring tape and begin measuring a room writing down each measurement in the applicable space on your rough drawing. For a basic start, measure the length and width of your room.
Colonial floor plans are elegant without being ostentatious. Moreover, they have an element of history attached to them. These floor plans come from the early American settlements of the East Coast. Colonial architecture ranged from New England to Georgia and, therefore, there are regional variations in style.
