What is a Floor Plan?

A floor plan is a diagram that shows you the layout of an area from above. Floor plans typically show the location of walls, windows, and doors, as well as installations such as furniture, cabinetry, and appliances. Floor plans are usually drawn to scale and will indicate room types and room dimensions.
