I'm sure plenty of other people have come in to give decoration advice, so I'm not here for that. What I'm here to do is recommend FloorPlanCreator: Website & Google Play Store
It's a super handy for planning out your floorplans. I have been in Ikea before and had made a model of my room in the app beforehand that way all that I needed to do was just plug in the dimensions of whatever I was wanting to buy and boom...I could see my layout. Super handy, and while it takes a bit to learn how to use it, it is absolutely worth the time it takes.
Feel free to DM me with a y question on the app and I can do my best to answer it for you. I've been using the app for a couple of years now and I'm familiar enough with it.
Yes, it's not a new idea by any means, just a refinement of the current apps.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=pl.planmieszkania.android Is the best of the bunch that I settle with, but has a few problems that really screw the process up.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sensopia.stanleyfloorplan Fixes those problems but adds enough of it's own that it's actually a worse option.
Bosch and Leica have versions that are just all around useless.
I'm working on a detailed explanation like the other poster suggested, but I'm already up to 2 pages and need screenshots and video to really explain myself still.
No, the laser and app don't come together, though most of those companies put out those apps because they also sell lasers. But as far as I've found, all lasers work with all apps.
I mean like there are apps made for floor planning tho like this or this
I really like Floor Plan Creator on Android. Might not be what you're after for a kitchen because you can't change textures (just colours), but very intuitive and easy to use. Perfect for mucking about with over a coffee, and not having to fire up the laptop to load sketchup.
I've been using Floor Plan Creator. It has a cloud service that syncs across devices, and a web-based app for desktop use. IIRC, somewhere in the app description or on their web site it indicates that sync requires a subscription. But I've got the paid version (one-time payment) and sync seems to work fine without a subscription. I'm using it on one mobile device and a desktop; maybe the subscription is required for more devices.
The app takes some time to get used to, so I recommend trying the unpaid version for a bit first.
I am in the planning stages with my skoolie as well. Might I offer this tool? It's not perfect, but it's been really helpful. My link is to a cracked version of the app, you can use the free version from the Google Play Store if you like, but it cannot export without a $3.99/$6.99 subscription.
it's a problem to seriously consider. I use this program to play around with layouts and the 3d mode helps so much with visualizing it.
give it a try, it's really fun and helps nail out ideas
I've been using Floor Plan Creator recently and really like it. It supports s-pen, and has a web interface too. It's not going to fill the need for network diagrams, but for that I'll give a +1 for diagrams.net.
I was kidding, that link just takes you to the general Visio info/sales page. I just googled "tablet floor plan app" and found this.
I used Floor Plan Creator to make a floor plan of my home, and you can place objects inside the walls as well. You won't find anything to place that is specifically AV equipment related, but it has generic rectangle shape things you can place with and modify dimensions. It works pretty well, takes a bit of getting used to, and sometimes the object snapping feature can get annoying (you can toggle it).
Here are a few:

Looks like Floor Plan Creator
I've been working my ass off trying to perfect a floorplan system. I started with Magicplan, it was a novel idea but took too long in the home with antsy agents hovering over my shoulder. So then I got the Bosch laser meter and the Freehand Designer to draw plans by hand and measure them. The measuring went quickly, but my ability to draw was lacking. By the time I got to the end of the house, rooms that should have lined up were not and I was depending on notes on my sketch to remember what to fix. I'd then bring it home and redraw it in software. I tried Visio and Smartdraw but they drove me crazy with little bugs, walls not snapping right, measurements changing on me. Took forever. I finally found Chief Architect and really like that a lot
So now I've gotten the Leica Distro E7100i which has bluetooth, and the free app Floor Plan Creator. I think this is what I've been looking for all along. In the app you can just scribble the outline of the room caveman style, then the app straightens the walls and lets you fix it up more. You hit measure and it connects to the bluetooth and highlights a wall. Shoot that wall with the laser and it records it and highlights the next wall. You're pretty much building the finished floorplan right there. At the very least you have perfect outlines and measurements to bring home and plug into Chief Architect, no more trying to decipher my notes and look at my photos to figure it out after the fact.
As for my own question, what is everyone charging for floor plans?
Dunno why the bot didn't kick in, but here's the link to it on the Play store anyway.
