Top RoomSketcher 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.
Create Furniture Layouts
Once your floor plan is ready, click on the Furniture button, to add furniture. The RoomSketcher Product Library has over 7,000 brand-name and generic products to choose from. All the furniture sizes are adjustable, so you match the measurements of the furniture you already have or that you are considering buying. This will help you determine the perfect size of the furniture you need.

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 Room 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.

An accent wall is a great way to create a focal point in a room. Add wallpaper or a different paint color on a single wall to create an accent wall.
Decorate Your Room
Now it’s time to decorate your room. Experiment with furniture styles. Try out different color schemes. Then accessorize with artwork, lighting, and home decor to create that perfect look.
Visualize Your Design in 3D
The best part of this room planner is that you can visualize your interior design ideas instantly in 3D. While you draw your floor plan, a 3D model of your room is being generated at the same time. View any part of your room in 3D with the integrated virtual camera, and create snapshots of your design ideas as you go.
You can adjust the camera height and aperture to get a wide-angle view of your room or zoom in to see details close-up. Save your favorite snapshots to the Image Gallery to compare design options and to choose the ones that will work best for your room.
