Spring update : improving Floorplans
Mar 31, 2014

It has been some time since you’ve heard from us. We’re happy to mention some improvements and updates of the Floorplanner tool. Lately, we've been working hard on improving Roomstyler and Floorplanner simultaneously.

New drawing features

We added some little details that could matter for a lot of our users.
1) Rotate your entire plan at a custom angle. This is ideal for drawing plans with rooms at an angle, like the one displayed.
2) The option to get the total floor area of your plan. You can see in one go the total square size of all your auto-generated rooms, and also of your custom surfaces. We’ve had the option in m2 for some time now, but now we also added the option in square feet.
3) Extra assets. The last months we’ve added plumbing symbols, server- and network equipment, a tennis court and an indoor soccer field. Also we improved the look of some assets like our TV screens.

Tutorials & Tricks

We started a series of tutorial movies in which we explain how to draw in Floorplanner. Every now and then we will add a new movie showing some new tricks or features to get the plans you need.

Also, we added some documents with Tips and Tricks on several subjects. For instance: How to draw an Attic, How to add a legend, Repairing your floorplan We’re glad to see that since then, the quality of attic plans has been visibly improved, and we see more and more people using floorplanner for electric- and plumbing plans with a legend explaining all the symbols.

Czech version!

In january we released a Czech version! We hope to bring all the floorplanner goodness to the Czech- and the Slovak republic. Thanks to our dedicated translators!

Floorplanner partners with Officeplanner to visualize office space
Jun 11, 2013

Floorplanner extends its platform into office spaces through a partnership with Officeplanner. This partnership adds a new possibility to the Floorplanner platform that allows people to automatically create different office layout proposals within seconds and see them in 3D.

“Visualising the possibilities of a particular space is hard and hiring a designer to draw up a custom proposal brings additional costs” says Jeroen Bekkers, CEO of “Officeplanner solves this by delivering custom 3D layout proposals on the fly based on the floorplan from our platform. It saves companies and real estate agents considerable time and money but also gives them much better insights into the potential of a space.”

Leading Dutch property portal is among the first to use the Officeplanner / Floorplanner integration within their website. This integration went live this week with over 250 office spaces already enabled with this feature.

Jan Werkman, commercial manager at Funda, says: "From experience we know that it's difficult for future tenants or buyers to see the potential of an empty office just by looking at a floorplan. They have a hard time visualizing if this is the right space for them. The interactive 3D floorplan from Officeplanner helps to bridge this 'imagination gap' based on the most advanced internet technology available."

HTML5 floorplans for phones and tablets
May 30, 2013

Floorplans are an essential part of any serious property presentation. And more and more people are accessing these presentations on mobile devices – property portals such as Rightmove and Zoopla in the UK state that over 30% of their traffic now comes from a phone or tablet. That means that floorplans need to be shown at their best in these mobile environments too.

Floorplanner floorplans can be output as 2D and 3D high quality images - but also as interactive floorplans. These interactive floorplans can be easily embedded into any website, as easily as embedding a YouTube movie. The advantage of an interactive floorplan is that it engages home hunters far more in planning the rooms, seeing if it corresponds to their needs, driving up emotional attachment to a property which results in better leads.

HTML5 for phones and tablets

We’re really pleased to announce that interactive floorplans are now available on all mobile devices. We recently released an HTML5 version of the interactive floorplan viewer especially designed for phones and tablets.

What’s even better is that you don't have to change anything. Whenever you load a floorplan on a mobile device, the new HTML5 version is automatically loaded.

Floorplans to scale

A house can have several floor levels and the floors can have different sizes. We have improved our mobile viewer to automatically display each floor to the same scale. This way, it's easier for a home hunter to understand the size of the floorplans and thus the house.

So have a look – get out your phone or tablet and try it out for yourself. We hope you’ll be impressed! Check out these plans for instance:
