How to Draw a Simple House Floor Plan With Dimensions

A simple floor plan with dimensions is a basic layout of a home, but there’s no reason not to make it a stunning and detailed visual presentation. Cedreo gives you the tools you need to easily create feature-rich floor plans that will make your clients happy.

Step #1: Start From Scratch or Import an Image

Create your floor plan by drawing from scratch or uploading an existing floor plan with your house dimensions. You will have the ability to resize the floor plan, and even enlarge or reduce walls. Just draw right over an existing floor plan to get it ready to customize. With continuous drawing mode, it’s easy to draw walls and make changes in real time.

Step #2: Draw Walls and Add Openings

The next thing you will want to do is add the inner walls to divide the large area into rooms. A good rule of thumb is to start with the largest room in the house and build the other rooms off of it. Once levels and internal walls have been added, the next step is to insert wall openings, such as doors and windows, from the Cedreo product library. Use the software to duplicate wall openings and keep dimensions accurate. Drag and drop doors into place, and the 3D view will update in real time to reflect the additions.

Step #3: Add the Roof

The Cedreo online design tool allows users to add a roof automatically, based ons the exact dimensions of the building levels. You can choose from several different roof types, including multi slope, gable, single slope, or flat roof. Then, using the roof automation tool, add a roof in just one click. Add features like dormers, downspouts, and gutters. Once you add one piece of guttering, Cedreo can automatically add the rest with a single click.

Step #4: Add Dimensions

Easily customize room sizes, activate or deactivate floor plan measurements, or move them within your plan, all during the planning step. You can even decide what dimensions to show on your plan, when it’s rendered for presentation to your client. Color-code sections of the floor plan and add furniture and appliance symbols to make the 2D floor plan even easier to read.

Step #5: Add Furnishings

Instead of drawing furnishings individually, just search Cedreo’s 3D library of over 7,000 customizable pieces of 3D furniture, appliances, decorative objects, and surface coverings, and then add them to each room. We even offer an anti-collision feature that stops you from accidentally placing items on top of each other when adding them to the plan.

Step #6: Make Final Customizations

Review your designs and make any necessary changes before rendering your final plan. (Remember: You can save several versions of a floor plan, if you want to present different options for a client). Have peace of mind knowing that changes are quick and easy to make if needed.

Step #7: Finalize Your Area Table

The last step in creating a floor plan with measurements is to finalize the area table on the drawing. Decide which parts of each level are to be included in the home’s overall calculations, and if you want to customize the dimensions of any areas. Just select which house floor plan dimensions to include in the final plan.

Frequently Asked Questions About Floor Plan Dimensions

How Do You Write Dimensions on a Floor Plan?

Floor plan dimensions are most commonly presented in feet and inches (the imperial measurement system). The metric system is an alternate form of measurement, using meters for floor plan dimensions. With Cedreo, you can choose which system of measurement you would like to use. Room dimensions are displayed as width by length. For example, a room that has a dimension of 10' x 12' means that it is 10 feet wide by 12 feet long.

What Scale is Most Common on Residential Floor Plans?

For residential structures, 1/4-inch scale is most common, roughly equivalent to 1:50 in metric scale.
