Floor plan design software or website?

4 Replies

I've personally used Homestyler for designing basic floor plans which is a web based design software.  You may also want to look into Floorplanner.

SketchUp has a browser version that's free. The pro-version is actually used by professional services like architects and contractors. You can use it to produce floor plans, renderings, walkthroughs, etc. I've been using it for a couple years and its the cheapest and most practical. Also, you can do the modeling in Rhinoceros 5.0 but this is more for form making and design modeling. I included the hyperlinks. Hope this helps!

I have one that I bought that I like pretty good, it's pretty intuitive and user friendly. I've used it to redesign floor plans on existing rentals that I have. Home Designer suite from Chief Architecture. I think I paid $100 for it.
