Floor plans don't usually factor into my decorating process. With today's assignment though, I was excited that I'd be carrying around a clear, technical picture of the soon-to-be jewel box room on my phone and tablet. But when the iPad apps I tried weren't giving me the flexibility I wanted (why won't it let me draw a closet?!), I grabbed a ruler and a Sharpie and went analog.
To make my digital floor plan, I used the free version of Home Design 3D, which I was really enjoying. Until I had to add the entry jut and the closet. I tried different techniques for an hour or so, but it wasn't displaying measurements that I wanted (like the total length of the bottom wall). Since this version didn't include the detail I wanted, I went old school with a ruler and a Sharpie.
While this version isn't to scale like the digital one, at least I can jot down all the little measurements that I took, like the depth of the closet and the space between the windows.
I left the room empty, since there's nothing I'm really keeping in there. I'm starting with a clean slate... at least on paper.
Did you go digital or analog with your floor plan?
