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.

When visiting a property to create a floor plan, there are a range of style and layouts that you will come across. A rather frequent item that arises is the need to delete a wall. Most typically, this can be used when creating an open plan space, for example where a kitchen and dining room occupy one shared area.

In these cases, we will want to show a room label for each section, clearly representing the ‘kitchen’ and ‘dining room’. To do this, you can add each room separately to the floor plan. To finish, you simply drag an ‘opening’ symbol onto the dividing wall. By increasing the size, this creates an opening and, in effect, deletes the wall on your floor plan image.

Other examples may include a dressing area, alcove or where part of a wall is present within a room.

The video above gives quick and easy reference to see how this works as and when you need it.
