With the economy still in a rut and the value of homes still decreasing, rather than moving, the new trend is to redesign old rooms or shuffle floor plans to upgrade. This can give a home a new fresh feel without the expensive cost of moving or adding a new addition.

It is important to have a floor plan since it provides you with something concrete to look at and work with. It also offers you a way to experiment and try different things without having to move all the furniture around or waste money on purchases you dont need or wont fit. Having an accurate plan will also help you buy the right amount of carpet, paint and other materials so you wont waste money on too much or have to go back for more. Its also wise to have a floor plan so the decorating goes smoothly and looks good in the end. Many people who dont do a plan end up with sloppy, uncoordinated results. Measurements you want to include in the plan are each side of the floor, where the windows are located, height of the room and where the doors are located. These measurements will be especially helpful in purchasing flooring and paint. You will also want to include the measurements of any furniture you will or want to include in the room. This will help you when you go to buy the rest of the furnishings for this room.

A floor plan should be designed to meet the needs of the family. It is best to ensure that there is not much unused space or too little space. Make sure there is enough room for the whole family, for privacy as well as for all kinds of entertainment. While deciding on a floor plan there are some thing that need to be considered. The ideal location for the garage is near the kitchen, because it is easier to transfer recently bought groceries and empty the garbage. A kitchen is also best when located near the dining room, for the easy transfer of food onto the table.

The easiest way to solve this problem is through the use of a floor plan. This will help you to get an idea of how the furniture in question will look in the context of everything around it. One of my favorite tools to accomplish this task is a free piece of software called Google Sketchup. The advantage to using software instead of a paper and pencil is that the computer model will be much faster to build and edit provided you take the time to learn how to use the program properly. After you install this program, plan on spending about one hour going through the basic tutorial thats include. Remember, its much smarter to spend one hour learning to use a program followed by half an hour building your model than it is to spend three hours fighting with a poorly constructed model. If youre planning on doing three-dimensional work, I highly recommend that you go through the entire tutorial, which should take around two and a half hours. Thankfully, its quite easy to grasp due to the high quality of the included documentation.

Once all of your items are on your floor plan and youre sure everything will fit, do a quick check for correct proportions. Imagine yourself in the space youre designing. Is your coffee table unbelievable huge? Is your entertainment center unbelievably small? After youre satisfied that the proportions are correct, use the tape measure tool in Sketchup to check the width of the narrow spots in the room. You probably want at least 36" of available space in high-traffic areas.
