About the Floor Plan Template

A floor plan is a drawing to scale that gives you a bird’s eye view of a space. Some floor plans include an entire building, while others focus on a single floor or room. Floor plans can be as detailed as you need, and might include measurements, appliances, furniture, dimensions, or any other salient information. Architects, engineers, builders, and designers rely on floor plans to lay out and construct a space.

What is a floor plan

For builders, designers, engineers, and architects, most projects begin with a floor plan. A floor plan is a scaled diagram of a building, floor, or room. It provides a view of the space from above. Floor plans can be as simple or as detailed as you need. They might include measurements, appliances, use of and relationships between rooms, furniture, wiring systems, foot traffic flow, or dimensions – whatever is necessary to achieve your goals.

Floor plans are essential tools for visualizing how people move and function in a given space. They streamline projects by making it easier to see if a space can serve its intended purpose. By creating a floor plan, you can work through challenges and redesign projects before committing costly resources or time.

Create your own floor plan

Making your own floor plans is easy. Miro’s whiteboard tool is the perfect canvas to create and share them. Get started by selecting the Floor Plan template, then take the following steps to make one of your own.

  1. Use shapes to create objects in your room. The template already has shapes you can use, copy, or rearrange.  

  2. Make your model to scale. If you’re modeling an existing building, take measurements of the walls, doors, appliances, and furniture. Whether you’re a seasoned interior designer or a homeowner looking to redesign a room, it’s important to have accurate measurements of the space. You can use squares on the infinite canvas to represent units of measurement to fit everything to scale (e.g. a foot, a meter, a yard).

  3. Add architectural features such as doors, windows, and appliances. Use shapes or even images to visualize them in your floor plan.

  4. If necessary, add in more furniture. Double-check to make sure the furniture is to scale.

Work Plan Template

A work plan is essentially a roadmap for a project. It articulates the steps you must take to achieve the desired goal, sets demonstrable objectives, and establishes measurable deliverables. An effective work plan guides you throughout the project lifecycle, allowing you to realize an outcome by collaborating with your team. Although work plans vary, they generally contain four core components: goals, strategy, tactics, and deliverables.

Quick Retrospective Template

A retrospective template empowers you to run insightful meetings, take stock of your work, and iterate effectively. The term “retrospective” has gained popularity over the more common “debriefing” and “post-mortem,” since it’s more value-neutral than the other terms. Some teams refer to these meetings as “sprint retrospectives” or “iteration retrospectives,” “agile retrospectives” or “iteration retrospectives.” Whether you are a scrum team, using the agile methodology, or doing a specific type of retrospective (e.g. a mad, sad, glad retrospective), the goals are generally the same: discovering what went well, identifying the root cause of problems you had, and finding ways to do better in the next iteration.
