Room Planning Tip: When you design a room it is always a good idea to create two floor plans – one of your existing room and one of your new design. Having both will help salespeople, suppliers and/or contractors to see more accurately what you need to create your design. This will save you both time and money when planning a room. And best of all, it’s easy to do with RoomSketcher – just create a new level to make a copy of your floor plan, and start your new design.

Room Planning Tip: When planning a furniture layout, always start by adding the largest furniture items first. Use these to determine your arrangement options. Then, add in smaller furniture pieces after. This will save you time and effort when creating your furniture layout.

Add Finishes

Once your furniture layout is complete, add your room finishes. Just click the Materials button and select a material, such as wood, tile or wallpaper, and drag it into the room. Choose to apply it to the floor, walls or both. You can try out all sorts of different finish options for the floor, walls and ceiling. You can also find and match paint colors.
