Floorplanner Basics 4: Add a Kitchen and Furniture

HomeKitchen ➟ Floorplanner Basics 4: Add a Kitchen and Furniture


Hey there, This is Nico from Floorplanner and welcome back to the basic drawing tutorial In the previous videos we drew the walls, added doors and windows, a staircase and a garden and also the area sizes and textures of the rooms

Now we’ll make this plan more into a home We’ll create this open kitchen, and add a bit of furniture in the living room Let’s get started with the kitchen We’ll first add a wall section here, partly dividing the kitchen from the living room There are actually two ways you can do this

The first way is using the room tool Move your mouse to the first construction icon to draw a room Click it and the cursor changes into a cross Move your mouse to one of the white dots where you want to start the wall It’s this corner I want to start

And click for the first point, for connecting to this wall If you move your mouse, and keep your mouse horizontally or vertically aligned to the first point, notice that you only draw one wall instead of four walls at a time So you won’t make a complete room, but just one wall, which is attached to the first point And also reacts with the automatic area calculation that I discussed in the previous video Now, you can click once more to finish this wall

Voilà! And if you move over it you see all the white dots appear, you see the line highlight, and now you can drag it and it will react kind of the same as dragging other walls And now we can click this wall to set the height We actually want a low wall, more like a banister, so you can look from the kitchen worktop into the living room There’s an option called ‘edit height’ and here you can change the height and elevation of the wall We want to make a wall of 1

1 meters high, so I’m just typing 11 and I click somewhere else in the canvas to get rid of the menu and it’s set to 11 Let’s check 3D to see the result And indeed we have a low wall

There’s a second way to a separate wall like this (let’s remove this one) And that’s by using the third icon in the construction menu, which is the Line tool There are various types of lines: We have a line type called “single wall” we have a “dimension line” you can draw just normal lines or dotted lines, that’s the third icon You can draw fences, hedges and pathways In the advanced tutorials I’m covering the other line types, but now I’m just using the single wall tool

Single walls are actually a special type of wall that we added for exceptional cases Sometimes you just want to have a wall that doesn’t connect with the rest of the wall structure Like a room divider And in this case it’s also handy to use a single wall You can start a single wall anywhere, you don’t have to start at one of the white dots, but in this case I am going to start here

Just click once and move your mouse and you see a blue line Then you can click again and you have a wall And if you release and move your mouse, you will see that a new blue line appears to directly create a second wall We don’t want this, so we press “Escape” to cancel the wall drawing mode, and we can move over this wall with the cursor and it highlights Now you can drag it

Or you can drag the corners But we just want to change the height, so I’m clicking it and you have a small menu with more properties, duplicate and delete I’m clicking more properties and here there's a menu showing the same line types that I showed over here Here you can set the thickness and I want to edit the height to 11 meters Click somewhere else to get rid of this menu and save and we can check 3D again, to see that we have the same result

Okay, that’s that Now let’s add a kitchen block, over here You can find the kitchen block in the sidebar You can either choose the kitchen category, or, for the same effect type “kitchen” and you will get all this kitchen equipment: Kitchen cabinets, a complete block with cabinets and a furnace and a sink You can find kitchen hoods here, a stove , various types of cookers and separate worktops with cabinets

I’ll keep it easy today, so I’m just going to drag in a ready-made kitchen into the plan and drop it over here All right, we finished the kitchen, and let’s set up a coffee corner over here First I want to add a nice rug: Let’s add this one I’m just dragging it in, and now I want to add some sofas Here’s a nice triple seater in red

So we click and drag and then use the arrows to rotate and if you click the “i” you see that you get more properties You can change the colour, or the rotation, or flip it I just want to duplicate it Let’s find a nice coffee table to put in between I’d like a glass one, so I could type ‘coffee table’, but I can also search for a typical material then you get all these glass items Click and drag and release, and click to rotate

Here’s a little tip: if you have multiple items you can group them together by holding the “Shift” key So you hold Shift, and then click each item you want to add one-by-one and if you click on the properties, you see that they’ve become a group These groups are only temporary so they’ll be lost when you reload the plan This grouping function can be very handy if you want to rotate a set of objects The last thing I want to do is add a nice painting

So let me search for “art” and there are numerous paintings Let’s add a nice Mondriaan At this moment it’s facing the wall, so I’m rotating it Oh, by the way, if you want to have a precise placement you can use the arrow keys Let’s check 3D, and if you rotate the plan, you will see that the painting is positioned on the ground

With most of our wall items you have to give them an elevation So you click the properties and select edit height and give it an elevation of 12 m And now it’s nicely fixed on the wall Okay, we now have a kitchen and a bit of furnishing

So far for part four In the next video I’ll tell you about several export options and how to get a print on scale Subscribe to our channel or come back to our tutorial page for more videos Thanks for watching, bye!

Recently, we found two simple, easy and inexpensive solutions to set up two spaces in the kitchen that we normally live in and that does not work well: drawers with plastic containers and weird plastic wrap and drawers or cabinets. with a plastic bag. At home, we keep some plastic bags we bring home, for use after our dog walks everyday. I think they should get them with some secret ingredient that increases the static attachment because we can never pick one out of the drawer. They remained united and ended up on a table or floor, usually when I was in a hurry because the dog was happy and barking to get out the door. However, there is a stainless steel bag organizer available on the market that keeps all the bags in one small space and crashing into the inside of the cabinet.
