Are you a real estate agent/photographer or an individual designing a home? Are you trying to create a perfect floor plan but without investing in hardware? There are two affordable solutions for all: Sketch by yourself or try Floor Plan creator apps! Let’s see which one is easier!
When you are designing or renovating a home, you’ll most likely need a floor plan. Creating a floor plan is not an easy job. A good floor plan not only enhances the visual identity of the home by creating a nice flow between spaces but also increase its resale value. To get a better floor plan, you can sketch the floor plan yourself, but it’s much easier to use a floor plan app, be it a drawing app or scanning app.
Method #1 Sketch a floor plan by yourself
If you sketch it by yourself, it will take several hours to measure the rooms and convert into a floor plan. For example, at first, you have to determine the area for drawing and also you need to brainstorm the design of the room. If you have an existing building, you need to decide how to draw the rooms, floor, open spaces. You need to measure the walls, doors and suitable furniture and add walls for each room of the building. Additionally, you should include architectural features like doors, windows, and furniture. After all these efforts, you won’t be able to get perfect measurements for your room which is compulsory in a floor plan. But, if you dare to invest some time you would have a floor plan at the end.
Method #2 Use a floor plan creator app
Thus, in order to save time, you can access several user-friendly room scanning apps which can help you to create floor plans and virtually design your interior decoration of rooms! Floor plan apps can take out your tiresome work and manage everything by determining suitable furniture to your space, assess how a paint color will look and put entire rooms together in virtual reality.
It is not hard to learn how to use Floor Plan App. The following are the ways how a floor plan app works.
- Download any floor plan app from your iPhone or Android phone and install it.
- You can hold the phone and scan the entire space or each room separately.
- The scanning can be done within minutes and the floor plan will be available for download immediately or the next business day depending on the app.
- Finally, you will be able to export your floor plan in different formats including PDF, JPG, PNG, SVG, etc.
In most of the apps, you just need a mobile phone which can do almost anything because the technical capabilities of the devices are becoming better and better e.g. ARkit and ARcore. But, in some apps, you need special hardware and software for doing the whole scanning process e.g Matterport.
There are several floor planning apps available in the market. For example, MagicPlan, Room Scan Pro, Floor Plan Creator, Room Creator, CubiCasa, iGuide, Cupix, Matterport, RoomSketcher, PLNAR etc. Most of the apps are suitable for both Android and iOS.
Among all the apps, CubiCasa offers an easy-to-use floor plan app with the most cost-effective pricing of only $34.90 per scan and five minutes of your time. All other solutions in the market, even if cheaper, require significantly more time and patience from you.
