2D Floor Plans and Blueprints
In need of a floor plan to showcase on your marketing, social media, or website? Looking to make slight adjustments to a blueprint you already have without going back to the architect? HomeRender has the easiest and most powerful solution for you.
We are a subscription service that can convert architectural drawings and blueprints into simplified floor plans. Or vice versa! We can even create floor plans or even blueprints from sketches on a napkin. Plus we offer unlimited revisions.
A 2D floor plan, or often called the black lines plan of the project, is fairly straightforward and can illustrate everything that your clients want to see. It does not show you the depth or height since it is presented in a two-dimensional form only, but it can optionally show the texture of flooring, furniture, labels to denote the room or room sizes.
Blueprints, or architectural drawings, on the other hand, have a lot of detail. Every wall should have measurements and each aspect on the plan is referenced to another aspect. There are often local building code comments, special pages meant for different trades or cities, and elevations showing each side.

One floor of a townhome with labels
1. Hand sketch
A hand sketch was provided with dimensions, wall thicknesses, room labels. The thicknesses of walls were cruitial for the townhouse project as some walls were ajoining other units. Other walls were associated with plumbing pipes, hvac ducting, and elevator requirements. Anything important to show, needs to be marked or highlighted.
2. Image Prep and upload
A photo of the project was uploaded, but the photo needs to be relatively oriented. The flatter the image was or aligned the lines are, the quicker the result will be. Additional dimensions may be required, otherwise it will be assumed based on the scale of the provided image. Ideally it is more accurate to use DWG files, but we will accept most image files.
3. Comments and clarifications
In this example, we had to clarify a few things.
- What did the "Ter" stand for? "Terrance".
- Did the client want the "Tub/Shower" label or "Bathroom" label since all other labels were descriptions of the room? "Bathroom" label.
- What were the types of windows being used (i.e. casement, double hung, slider)? They didn't know yet, so we used a generic plan symbol for them.
This example uses a hand sketch, but blueprint PDF or DWG files are the most common files we receive. Plans in PDF or DWG are commonly used for permitting, but cannot be used alone since they have too much markup to be marketed to the public.
