The Different Types of Floor Plans

The Different Types of Floor Plans

Every good home has a floor plan. In fact, every home has a floor plan. Without these certified documents, homebuilders, renovators, realtors, and developers would be at a loss. Floor plans are essential for a number of real estate undertakings, but having a floor plan that is comprehensive and easy to understand is critical. A floor plan should be clear, realistic, and accurately display the blueprint of a home – precise measurements included. Attaining a concise floor plan is on the list, but what type of floor plan do you need?

 

What is a Floor Plan?

Floor plans are visual representations of a home’s layout from above. These detailed images identify the rooms, doors, windows, and varying levels of a space. Every aspect of the home’s structural design is drawn to offer an illustration that explains the flow of the space. Simply seeing images of each room can lead to confusion of how the house is laid out, whereas a quality floor plan will capture the total essence of a home.

 

Why Do I Need a Floor Plan?

Floor plans are one of the many factors that aid in the selling of properties. These components offer a visual guide, allowing for future planning and add to a listing by making it more memorable. Home buying can only base their purchase decisions on what is presented – buyers want to see how the space looks, if it is functional, and whether it is big enough to suit their lifestyle. Offering floor plans guarantees that buyers, builders, renovators, and others in the housing industry have what they need to see the home in its entirety. Now all that is needed is to determine which floor plan is right for you.

 

Standard Floor Plans

The most common type of floor plan is the Standard Floor Plan. These images are a basic sketch of the home in black and white (or taupe colourization) displaying the outline of walls, doors, windows, and stairs. Each floor plan is based upon an “as-built” approach that is beneficial for marketing purposes as well as relaying a basic understanding of the home’s design. All Standard Floor Plans created by Urban Measure are colour branded for general use. As well, unbranded images will be provided to meet MLSÒ requirements.Standard Floor Plan

Custom Floor Plans 

If you prefer to have a customized view of a home to match your vision or an already existing space, the Custom Floor Plan is the best option. These visually appealing images show the textures, colours, and even the potential items that may be found within the rooms. All Custom Floor Plans are done to replicate your dream/existing home –including 3D rendered furniture as well as paint colours for each room. Urban Measure uses a Matterport 3D service to complete the floor plan and to truly capture the visuals that would be experienced in a home walkthrough.Custom Floor Plan

Renovation Floor Plans

The final type of floor plan is a Renovation Floor Plan. These are often used for situations where, over time, blueprints have become lost or damaged, or the structural/design of the home has been altered. A flawlessly created floor plan is a perfect way to show the build, shape, size, and layout of a home after renovations have been completed. Renovation Floor Plans are also necessary to ensure your property has the correct updated dimensions (which are showcased on each Renovation Floor Plan image). Other features of this type of plan include the walls, cabinetry, appliances, HVAC locations, plumbing, support structures, windows, and doors. Finally, note that all Renovation Floor Plans will meet any required standards needed to pass a city permit approval (guaranteed with Urban Measure Renovation Floor Plans).Renovation Floor Plan
