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
A floor plan will allow one to see exactly where furniture should be placed in a room for optimal design. With a plan of action no longer will there be a letdown when the delivery of the new furnishings come only to see that they will not fit into a room or even through the door or up a staircase. With a floor plan one will know that instead of a sofa and loveseat maybe only a sofa and a chair will work in the allotted space. When purchasing a dining room table, by having a plan one will know exactly what size and shape table will fit perfectly in the room. Before buying a king size bed that will not fit, with a floor plan one will know that the bedroom may only fit a queen size bed comfortably with one tall dresser instead of a long triple dresser.
A poorly laid out floor plan can create serious issues with financing if extra money has to be borrowed or things have to be corrected later. The next step is to consider the floor plan of the service centers, if there are any. These should be set near to where the customers are going to be while still being out of the way. You may also want to consider the fact that they may need to be near the kitchen.
Research your current market building costs. Contact a local realtor or custom home builder and discuss the average cost per square foot to build a home of the style you like. Now understand that this will only be an average because they can't possibly guess your personal tastes and the finish materials are a large part of any new home cost.
