Main Floor with Different Levels/One Step


Recommended Posts

This may be a silly question but its something I have not yet had to do yet in Home Designer. 


I am trying to recreate a main floor which has two different levels - the kitchen/dining room has one step down into a living area. 


Do I need to create two different floors for this even though it is all technically the main level in the home? 


Very much appreciated if someone could point me in the right direction for how to do this. Very much out of my repertoire ;)

Open a room, review the Structure panel. You will see where you can adjust floor and ceiling heights.


Suggest you create a new plan and experiment a bit to see how the settings work. Use a Cross Section camera to see what's happening.

Thanks Eric.


This is what worked for me:

Created my main floor.

Divided my room.

Created railing and made it invisible.

Entered my finished ceiling height for each room.

For the room that was LOWER: under "absolute elevations" under "Floor" - entered the difference in height.
