Need help creating a floor plan? Here is a template that will help you do just that. Included is 1/4 inch grid paper, along with furniture templates for your living room, dining room, bedroom, office, and outdoor space.
Begin by measuring your room and then drawing the shape of your room on the paper, using the grid as your guide. Keep in mind that while using the grid, 1/4 inch (1 box) is equal to 1 foot. Once you have the walls down, draw in your windows, and then any other fixed objects such as built-ins. Now for the fun part... add in your furniture! Browse through the templates provided and add in the furniture you would like to use in the space. I find it helpful to cut out the pieces I'm going to use, and then play around with them to figure out the best configuration.
