Angled walls

Not something you see every day, but it is something you will almost certainly come across periodically.

Split level stairs

When drawing a Floor plan for a property, there are often cases where there are a set of stairs that go between two rooms, on the same floor.  In Metropix we call this a Split Level staircase.

L shape room

When creating a floor plan for a property, there are very few that will have just square or rectangular rooms. There will be many that are L shaped, and this is incredibly easy to create with Metropix.

How to draw a floor plan

Not something you see every day, but it is something you will almost certainly come across periodically. When you do, you can have total confidence that Metropix will be able to get your plan looking perfect.

Whenever you add a room to the plan, you will see a white dot in every corner. This is visible for every room. This dot can be used to create your angled walls.

To do so, simply place your cursor over the white point, which will then turn red to show that you have selected it. Now left click and hold to drag the corner and you will see it creates an angle. As you make adjustments, you will get a feel for the movement on offer and how you can create all different types of angled walls and rooms.

In some cases, an angled wall may consist of 5 or more walls. In this case you can split a wall in two to create the extra wall (all rooms drawn initially have 4 walls). Double click on the wall to make a split, which leaves a new white dot on the wall itself (not the corner). Now you can drag this white dot to make a new shape/angle.

Doors and windows can be added to angled walls in the normal way, giving you full ability to draw all the shapes, styles and layouts that your local market can throw at you!
