Floorplanner meets teacher Christine Miserendino

At Floorplanner we are always curious to see how people from all over the world are using our products. In our monthly Floorplanner meets… series we share their stories. 

This month we are meeting Christine Miserendino, a future teacher from the United States who has been using Floorplanner to design the perfect classroom. Christine tells us why she believes Floorplanner to be a great tool for teachers and students alike. 

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

“I am currently a sophomore studying Elementary Education with a minor in Spanish at Grove City College in Pennsylvania. So far, my major has been a great experience even though I have been challenged a lot. I love the friends I have made here as well as my professors. They have given me a lot of great advice and tools to use to help my future classroom. Floorplanner was one the tools that my professor showed me. To use Floorplanner, I made an account and once I did, I started developing my future classroom with how it would look and what the overall layout would be.” 

Why does the design of a classroom matter?

“The point behind designing my future classroom using Floorplanner was to know how to make a classroom safe and manageable for learning. If a classroom is organised, clean, and safe, students are able to learn better physically, mentally, and emotionally since teaching is done in a more relaxed setting. If a classroom was messy and objects were hindering and potentially in the way of students, not much teaching (and learning) would get done. I would recommend using Floorplanner to other teachers because it is an easier way to allow the format and organisation of the classroom to be changed if need be; rather than waste time moving the classroom around and guessing where objects should go, Floorplanner helps a teacher layout their plan right in front of them so that no time is wasted and so there will be a safe environment for learning.

Would you also recommend use Floorplanner as an educational tool? 

“Floorplanner is a fun app and it definitely would engage students to use their creativity and design skills. Floorplanner can be used for fun activities such as having the students create their own ideal bedroom and then write down why they would want that. Floorplanner could also teach students about organisation and how to clean up and keep a neat and tidy space. When my teacher assigned us the task of using Floorplanner to make our own future classroom, I had a lot of fun setting up the layout of my room. I discovered that sometimes, even though you may want everything in your classroom, you must keep in mind how much space you have to manoeuvre so that the classroom is safe. Many times I had to move the items I had around so I could best keep the equipment I had, but also have a manageable classroom so students could properly learn.”

Update: 3D Doors & Windows

Floorplanner has taken yet another step towards turning your floor plans into a more realistic 3D floor plan.  

From now on when viewing your Floorplanner floorplan in 3D, not only the furniture pieces and accessories will be completely in 3D, but also the windows and doors! Before this update, the doors and windows were just a few flat images on the wall... Well, not anymore: from window frame to doorknob, you can now truly experience the dept of every single detail. Go give it a try in the 3D plan below:

p.s. We are still busy implementing this feature in the 3D render image export, but it already works great in the interactive 3D viewer in your browser.

From design to purchase in one click.

This week Product Markers were introduced on Roomstyler. With Product Markers companies who have a Branded Roomstyler can choose to tag their products so they become interactive in the final design of a room. The marker is clickable and offers more information about a product and can be integrated through a direct link to the companies webshop. For the customer the step from their design to a purchase is now only one simple click away.  

We are very excited to add this feature to our platform and think our clients and users will be excited too. Viewing product information in a design makes it much easier for people to discover and buy inspiring products.
— Jeroen Bekkers, CEO Floorplanner

Roomstyler is a great way for customers to experience their products in the virtual reality of their own homes. With the new markers they can now immediately inform them about their design choices and lead them straight to the shop. We believe that with this feature we really found a way to close the gap between a design and a sale.

Floorplanner meets KSK-Immobilien

At Floorplanner we are always curious to see how companies from all over the world are using our products. In our monthly Floorplanner meets… series we share their stories.


This month we are meeting German company KSK-Immobilien, the biggest real-estate broker in the Rhineland region. Mirko Wendel tells us about the past and future of KSK-Immobilien and all the smart ways his company employs to save time and money using Floorplanner.

Can you tell a little bit about KSK-Immobilien?

“KSK-Immobilien GmbH was founded 20 years ago as the real estate division of financial institution Kreissparkasse Köln and today still is its wholly owned subsidiary. With around 130 employees in more than 30 real estate offices in Cologne and surrounding districts, we are the largest real estate broker in the Rhineland region. This past year we have succesfully handled over more than 1,800 listings. We are not only specialized in residential property, but also in the sale and lease of land as well as commercial, exclusive, investment, agricultural and forestry property.”

How does KSK-Immobilien use Floorplanner?

“A few years ago we decided we wanted to start drawing the floor plans of our listings ourselves. Using Floorplanner we can guarantee that every one of the approximately 3500 floor plans we draw a year meets our quality standards. And the process of making corrections to an existing plan goes a lot smoother now that we can adjust the plans ourselves, instead of making an expensive detour via external service providers we have used in the past. For our company this "in-house" solution is particularly practical because we have been able to create an archive of all our floor plans. We consult the archive for certain new listings. For example, most student apartments have similar floor plans, so when we need a plan, we simply make little adjustments in an existing one instead of creating a complete new one. This way we can create a listing for our customers even quicker.

What are KSK-Immobilien’s plans for the future?

Floorplanner has become an important part of our everyday work. It allows us to remain independent of external drawing services and to work more quickly and effectively. For our company’s future we are especially interested in the interactivity Floorplanner offers. So in addition to already furnished floor plans, we would like to encourage our customers to virtually decorate their rooms themselves using Floorplanner.
