Floor plans are useful to help design furniture layout, wiring systems, and much more. They're also a valuable tool for real estate agents and leasing companies in helping sell or rent out a space.
If you're shopping around for homes one of the best ways to experience the floor plan of a home before you buy it is to walk through the developer's model homes before hand. One of the easiest mistakes is to get sold on the upgrades that a home stager and contractors have upsold the model on! Try and strip away the gorgeous finishes, the upgraded carpet, color coordinated wallpaper and drapery and focus on the layout and flow of the rooms. This will help you make an informed decision when choosing a floor plan.
