How accurate do my floorplan sketches need to be?
Are you wondering how accurate the sketches you send for Floorplan Sketch Conversion need to be?
What do you need from me?
We don't need (or get!) works of art. Rough and ready is fine but we do need you to take as much care as possible to help ensure the plan is completed correctly the first time around.
Even if visually the plan doesn’t look quite correct, the most important things we need are...
- Easy to read text and measurements
- As many measurements as possible
- Measurements written against each wall (with arrows to end points if possible!)
- Everything you want to be shown on the plan clearly marked (with a key if necessary)
Below is an example of roughly how we need your sketch to look. Need more examples? Download a zip file of some sketches and completed plans by clicking here.
- Measurements should be clear and legible
- The more wall measurements the better
- Measure to 2 decimal places (optional - 1 decimal place is normally fine).
- Write the measurement next to the wall
- If unclear, use arrows to show where the measurement was taken
Doors, windows and stairs
- Draw these on ‘by eye’ roughly where they are
- No need to measure precise location and widths
Kitchens and bathrooms
- Sketch on worktops, sinks and hobs roughly where they are located
- Sketch on the baths, showers, toilets and sinks roughly where they are located
- No need to measure precise location and widths of the above items
Floors and room names
- Write on the floors e.g. Ground Floor, First Floor
- Write the room name in the centre of the room exactly as you want it to appear
- Not required, but if you want it shown on your plan, be sure to enter this exactly as it should read in the ‘Address to show on floorplan’ text box on the New order page
