Frequently Asked Questions

What is a 2D floor plan?

2D floor plans are drawings that illustrate a clear view of a site or building. 2D floor plans convey layouts, furniture placement, types of walls, doors, windows, landscaping, and dimensions. Colored floor plans help distinguish room types and layout.

What is the difference between 2D and 3D floor plans?

2D floor plans are used primarily to communicate technical aspects that contractors need to complete projects. These include details such as load-bearing walls, wall types, opening orientation or windows and doors, and dimensions. 3D floor plans give a more life-like view helping clients visualize how the design elements work together, and how their furniture will look in the new space.

Can I create a floor plan for an entire home?

Yes — Cedreo is a full house plan designer that allows you to make layouts for entire homes and their separate floors. You can quickly add upper levels and basements by duplicating all of the exterior walls,to ensure complete cohesion.

Are 2D or 3D Floor Plans Better?

2D and 3D floor plans have different objectives. 2D floor plans are ideal to display more technical details like the walls measurements, door opening orientations and directions. They can be downloaded and printed to scale. However, they often fall short as a sales tool, because they may be difficult for clients to read and understand. Fully-furnished 3D floor plans give a true feeling of the house layout and traffic flow.
