FAQs

How do I use the dimensions tool?

You can capture space measurements using our interactive dimensions tool. First, select the shape and position of your space in the Space Shapes area. Next, enter measurements for all walls, edges and openings. Then, view and save your square footage totals.

How do I enter dimensions?

After you select a shape, a pop-up window will prompt you to enter measurements. When you add doors, windows or openings, the tool will also ask for their measurements.

Are room dimensions to scale?

No, the tool does not draw your living spaces to scale. It simply provides a quick visual representation of your space and the corresponding measurements.

How do I add doors, windows and other openings?

After you've selected your shape, choose Add Doors, Add Windows or Add Openings in the Walls and Openings area. Then click on the area in the drawing where you want to place the door, window or opening. Doors and windows are pre-populated with standard dimensions, but you can customize those if needed.

To remove openings, click on the elements in the drawing that you want to remove, then select Delete. You'll lose your measurements for that item.

What's the difference between a wall and an edge?

An edge is a defining border of a living space that isn't a wall, such as in an open floor plan. An edge helps you determine, for instance, how much flooring you need for a space. If you want to calculate the flooring square footage of a space within an open floor plan, indicating flooring edges helps you divide up spaces where walls would normally be.

How do I edit space dimensions?

From within your Home Profile, select the living space for which you want to edit the dimensions. Then select the Dimensions tab. Once you're in the dimensions tool, select Edit Dimensions, and then select the walls, edges, windows, doors or openings you wish to edit, and enter your new dimensions.
