Living Room Plan, Wall-by-Wall

In Tuesday’s post, I shared the overall floor plan for our living room.

Next, I want to share the elevation drawings I completed during the six week interior design class I’m so glad I was able to take.

What is an elevation drawing? Basically, an elevation is a one dimensional (flat) drawing of the three dimensional space. It is seen ‘head on’ or as if you were facing the particular wall from the front.

The elevation takes the floor plan one step further. You use the same elements in a room, but this time you’re able to get an even better idea of what the final product will look like.

So here is each wall of our living room. For each wall I’ll show you how the wall looked the last time you saw it, the elevation drawing and what the room looks like with the drawing at least partially implemented.

(This drawing differs slightly from the floor plan in that I opted to use an existing table rather than purchase a new bench.)

As you can see, drawing elevations helps you see the possibilities for your room without having to make any commitments before you’re ready.
