First Floor Furniture layout

Room names have been added to the picture above to assist in placing the first floor furniture.

Lets start with 'Bedroom 1'. Click on the 'Furniture' button.

select bed

Click on the King Size Bed symbol and then click 'Insert'. The King Size Bed symbol is now attached to the cursor for placement. Move the cursor into the middle of the room and click into place (see NOTE below). Hold down the shift key key and swing the bed around 180 degrees and click into place.

From the 'Furniture' symbols dialog box insert a 'night table' on either side of the bed. A set of 'Drawers' has been placed along the left wall and three 'Wardrobes' along the back wall of the bedroom.

Continue to insert the various furniture items as shown in the first floor layout. All of the 'Bathroom' and 'En-suite' items used are found in the Sanitary library


Sometimes depending upon the insertion point it is not possible to achieve the desired position first time. You may have to place the symbol approximately and use the move button Move command to position the symbol. On some occasions when multiple insertions of the same symbol are required it maybe easier to place the first one and then use the copy button Copy command.
