Okay, I know that certain things like bedrooms, closets and bathrooms have no standard size, but for those elements which do, is there somewhere online to get an idea of typical dimensions for? For example: a two-car garage (side by side), kitchen appliances, average-sized furniture, etc...

I'm trying to get an idea of scale for roughing out a floorplan. We know what types of rooms/areas we want in a house, and now it's a matter of the scale for these things.

I used to have architectural templates for drawing these things by hand, but that was eons ago, and they are lost to the annals of time.

Thanks!!

My boyfriend and I still live at home with our parents. (He with his mom and me with my parents), so we are having to buy all of our furniture brand new. What we did for the rough floor plan was choose the furniture we wanted to purchase not go by the "standard". For example, we made a detail listing of our fridge and stove's brand, price, dimensions; all the specifics right down to where we will purchase it from.

This took some research, but I figure that's what the planning stages are for to begin with. You can usually find all this online. Stores such as Home Depot and Lowe's will give you the dimensions when you click on the product info. You don't have to buy from them, but it serves as a helpful tool.

We are buying all of our furniture and appliances before we start building and move in in order to avoid having to deal with those bills, too. So far all has gone well and we are halfway through.

The National Kitchen & Bath Association has guidelines for clearances of appliances, seating areas, dining, walkways and bathroom fixtures.

Toi used it to decide placement in our bathrooms and kitchen. I have read the site and it is one of the most useful I have seen, when designing a kitchen or bathroom from scratch.

Phil,

Thank you so much for that link! Guidelines are precisely what I was hoping to find, and that hits the spot. Information like yours is what makes this place so valuable.
