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.
With a fantasy file and floor plans the perfect furnishings to complete a lovely decor can now be easily purchased without stress. Walk into a store with a goal and the tools needed to complete the mission without worry of a hard selling salesperson. Understanding the exact needs of the room puts the buyer in control of their own destiny of a beautiful abode.
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.
Now it is time to play with placing furnishings in the floor plan. When the basic room plan is completed make a few copies and have fun designing the room for several scenarios as if playing with furniture in a dollhouse. Just as room was scaled to fit the floor plan the furniture must be placed in the room to scale as well.
