App to design a floor plan?

Hi there!

I’m no architect or anything like that. I have a space that my family bought and we would like to use some of what is already built. That’s why I’m looking for a floor plan app to design something and give us some idea of what we may be able to do.

With that in mind, which one would you suggest? I have an iPad, MacBook and iPhone.

Thank you everyone.

I would take a look at Affinity Designer v2. It is a great app for designing and laying out stuff, and v2. includes tools for measurements as well.


This might be, what you are looking for.

This may be too much, but its non subscription and cheaper than Affinity

RoomSketcher looks interesting but I find websites that hide the pricing extremely annoying…

Affinity Designer is indeed a pro-level app, but I find it way easier to work with than Adobe Illustrator. It might be overkill if you won’t need Designer for other tasks later.

It looks very complete, thank you! I will try it out.

Thanks! It caught my eye when I was looking for this kind of apps. I will try it!

I used this iOS app for free 3 years ago when I was planning a house: Room Planner. It was really easy to use and also has a linked library of IKEA and other store furniture.

I think I hit a paywall a couple of times and I did consider just taking out a subscription for a couple of months to cover me, but in the end I was able to do all I needed without paying (my needs weren’t complicated, I just wanted to try different layouts and plan a garage conversion).

Thank you, I’ll check it out.

Which one did you ultimately choose? I took the measurements of my basement to plan out my home gym layout. I’ve tried a coupled of apps but there are all too complicated so far.

I’m hoping that you found an easy to use app as a result of your research!

I decided to stick with Illustrator. All apps that I looked at had too steep learning curve. :frowning:
