Wow! This kit, was the cheapest and MOST EFFECTIVE method we found for planning the rooms in our house. The ability to plan, easily change and visualize a room layout...without moving furniture....is great. This is perfect for new home buyers, who are trying to organize multiple rooms.

The concept is good but it should be available in a 1/4"= 1' scale so it could be used with standard house plans.

I wasn't as pleased with this item as I thought I would be. It was purchased to use for our homeschooled 16 year old. At the time of this purchase, we also purchased "Home Quick Planner", which was the real find for us. I purchased this with the intention of using it as a supplement to the "Home Quick Planner" after seeing it listed on Amazon as a "goes together" type of item. Unfortunately, the "Home Quick Planner" was scaled to 1/2"=1', and this item was scaled at 1/4"=1', so they really aren't good together.

I was also wondering why they have the subtitle "From Stencils and Notepaper to Flowers and Napkin Folding", since that was not in MY edition, and my edition looks just like the picture in the Amazon ad.

Also, the "Home Quick Planner" has detailed "window cling-type" stickers that you can take off and put back on easily, which is nicer than these cardstock punch-outs, which are very plain. I would suggest that you "look inside", on the Amazon listing, which I didn't do since I impulsively purchased it when Amazon listed it as a "goes together" item. After viewing the "look inside", you may decide that this is just what you want, and the price is very low. It may be nice for somebody who wants to invest a small amount of money to try their abilities at layouts. You may be very happy with it.

I love this book and I have used it over and over for years. Who cares if it doesn't match blueprints? Simply measure your room and do the math. I don't have blueprints to try and match - I'm just a woman trying to redo rooms in a house. There are 215 punch out pieces of furniture and if they don't fit your EXACT sofa you can cut them down to size.

I am a perfectionist and need everything to be measured exact. I do not cut corners and I have used this book for at least 5 complete room makeovers. It has been invaluable and many furniture pieces were NOT purchased because I knew they wouldn't fit in the room - all thanks to this really inexpensive layout kit. $5? It's worth the investment many times over.

Just bought a condo and starting from scratch on furniture, area rugs, etc. I have drawn out some rooms already, and am finding it very helpful with designing the furniture arrangements I want and take it with me when shopping. Some have criticized the scale of graph paper, and I think they are just using it wrong. Two squares equal 1 foot, there are darker lines showing a foot with a lighter line in middle, making it much easier than regular graph paper. Once I get the wood flooring down, I am going to use painter tape to outline exact furniture placement, which I think will help the movers greatly, and keep me from struggling to rearrange after they leave. When shopping, I take this book, a measuring tape, paint color fan, fabric samples, a small camera and notebook in a fun fabric tote. I have received several compliments from store decorators, they say it's very difficult to help someone without a clear idea of size needed, placement, etc. This is a very helpful item at an inexpensive price, I highly recommend it.

TO ALL THOSE COMPLAINING OF THE SCALE OF THE GRAPH PAPER AND/OR FURNITURE PIECES.......

Look at the graph paper you have and find a piece of furniture that is an even 24" which is 2 feet on one side. I used the 24" x 24" chair but there are plenty of other pieces you can use.

Place the piece on your graph paper and see how many squares it overs on one side, drawing around the piece or the one side onto your graph paper.

I have the few sheets that came with the set, plus I bought a package of "quad" graph paper as well as another that is bound in a notebook. The sheets that came with the set as well as the quad sheets both are the same and the 24" side covers 4 squares. (24" / 4 = 6") So that means each square is a half a foot or six inches.

The other paper that I have is on a smaller scale and the same 24" side covers 5 squares. (24" / 5 = 4.8") So that means each square is 4.8 inches. If you require exactness without any room for error than you will want to buy the quad paper. (I got mine at walmart and it was inexpensive.) But if you want to use what you have you can go ahead and use this. Chances are you are not going to be measuring the exact distance between your chair and the wall and the coffee table (for example) so it will be close enough to still use and appreciate this set to make the most of it.

I absolutely love this set, and I can't believe I waited so long to order it. It makes my life easier because I'm not asking the hubby to move everything a dozen times before I am happy with a room layout. I can experiment on paper first. Marking the areas for windows, closets, doors etc.

If you don't find the size of furniture that you need by words, go by measurements.
