Most floor plans show the location of sinks, toilets, and other critical fixtures. Skilled designers focus intently on locating kitchen and bath fixtures because they know that precise layout matters. The placement of a refrigerator in relation to the sink, oven and range can determine if a kitchen is comfortable or awkward. Similarly a toilet placed too close to a vanity, the wall or a door makes a bathroom difficult to use comfortably.
3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath modern home with a dramatic 2-story living room with giant corner windows. It includes a 3 car attached garage and is planned for a finished basement with an additional bedroom, bathroom, large recreation room and wine cellar. This home has a very open floor plan with both the dining room and kitchen opening into the dramatic 2 story living room space. Big windows and patio doors allow great access to decks and yard. The plan includes a main level flexible room that has a separate entry and a tall ceiling, so it can be used as a studio, bedroom or office.
More detailed floor plans include “dimension strings” to locate windows, doors, walls and other architectural elements. Dimension strings are drawn parallel to the element with 45º “hash marks” at each end of the dimension string indicating where the measurement starts and ends
If the front door opens directly to the living or dining space there’s often no notation, just the door swing. Door swings trace the swing of the door in and out — good to keep in mind as you think about furniture placement. Sliding doors are noted not as swings but as thin lines parallel to — but thinner than — the line of the wall.
