The floor plan can be a tricky document to understand. After all, what do you make of all the lines, shapes and unfamiliar icons? To wrap your head around it, you need to first understand that this blueprint is a top-down view of your home, drawn to scale, and includes the walls, doors and windows. Each line, whether in dots or dashes, has a specific meaning that can help you understand the space better.
When reading a floor plan, it’s good to start from the main entrance. Imagine yourself walking through the home, and envisioning where the doors and windows are. It might also help if you rotate the floor plan as you move through the rooms, to give yourself a sense of perspective.
