2D Patio Floor Plans

Your 2D patio plans will show your future patio as a flat drawing viewed from above. This is perhaps the least exciting version of your floor plan, but it can communicate a surprising amount of information and occupies a critical role in the design process.

Using unique quick-draw capabilities, Cedreo allows you to continuously draw the outer edges of your patio design. All you have to do to create a corner or angle is click. 

With the external edges solidified, your next step is to add wall openings, such as a door leading from inside the house onto the patio, as well as windows that overlook it. Drag and drop these items, furnishings and decorations for lightning-fast 2D floor plan creation.
