PLANNING YOUR NEW ROOM
This easy to use planner will help you make the best use of your room space.
? Step 1 – Draw Your Room to Scale
Use a measuring tape, ruler and pencil, measure and draw your room’s length and width on the grid (page 4).
Each 1/4" square on the grid = one foot of your room size.
Along each wall, measure the distances between the corner and trims of all doors, windows and other openings. Draw in the widths of these openings.
Measure and draw in the locations of all wall outlets. Put "E" inside a small circle to indicate an electrical outlet, "W" for wall switch, "C" for cable, and "T" for telephone.
Draw or note room features that may affect furniture placement: floor and wall vents, distance from floor to bottom of windows, height of wall molding, baseboard thickness, ceiling fans, etc. ? Step Two - Make Some Notes
