Drawings that show how to construct, renovate, or install a project are known as working drawings or construction drawings. Any interior project that involves a number of phases must include the drawings as a significant component. Currently, working drawings are created by a separate department in the majority of interior design firms. They communicate the names of the rooms, the placements of the doors, windows, and fixtures, the proportions and spatial relationships, the materials, color schemes, the furniture, the equipment, and other specifics.

The design concept or design objective for an interior is mostly established through these drawings. Working drawings, whether created manually or digitally, are frequently utilized in the development of interior designs. For their working drawings, the top interior design companies in India use cutting-edge applications like Autocad, SketchUp Pro, and Autodesk Revit.

The first stage in organizing and carrying out the interior work is to create working drawings. Interior design depends heavily on computer-aided drawing (CAD) and computer-aided drawing and drafting (CADD). Here are some explanations for why working drawings are crucial to any project: –

  • Drawings are the main tool used by interior designers to generate ideas.
  • Working drawings serve as a platform for design and client presentations. Both a perspective view and an isometric view can be found in the renderings.
  • Working drawings serve as a map and a guide for the building process. Manufacturing drawings for cabinets, furniture, and other items are scaled, comprehensive, and precisely depict how an object will seem when created, according to the materials used.
  • They act as a measure for determining whether or not the requirements have been met.
  • The design process is a series of processes that includes concept sketches and drawings.
  • They assist in recording changes or additions made during installation.
  • These drawings are a useful tool for post-installation maintenance and troubleshooting.
  • Working drawings include 360-degree views as well as sectional details.
  • serve as a blueprint for updating or modifying the control systems.
  • Time and money are saved by consistent and uniform designs since they cut down on error and misunderstanding.



Process drawings, Construction drawings, and Presentation drawings are the three types of drawings used in interior design. Collectively, these designs feature a variety of components, including: 

  1. Elevations

Elevations give scaled-down views of the home’s façade. They provide information about topographical features, such as roof slope, overhangs, ceiling heights, and external finishes.

  1. Floor Plans

The locations of doors, windows, furnishings, fixtures, appliances, windows, and other features are described in depth in floor plans.

  1. Foundation Plans

Important details on the structural support elements, load-bearing walls, point loads, construction methods, etc. are provided in the foundation design.

  1. Section Views

Cross-section views put more emphasis on specific characteristics.


5. Interior design drawings

Together with furniture arrangement drawings, they also include wall layout drawings, electrical layout drawings, doors and window layout drawings, and plumbing layout drawings.

Building information modeling (BIM) is increasingly being utilized to produce three-dimensional images and enhance communication between interior designers, engineers, and architects.

All projects, whether they are residential, commercial, hospitality-related, or industrial, utilize working drawings. Depending on the needs of the client, they can be offered in 2D or 3D. The interior designer may rely on a design drafting firm to provide the drawings, or it may have its own drafting staff.

Few interior designers still employ specialist drafting tools to help bring their plans to life, despite the fact that the computer has replaced the drawing board as the primary interior design tool. They consist of:

  • Drafting boards and tables
  • Drawing Papers and Plastic Film
  • Pencils, leads, and pens
  • Compass
  • Parallel Bar, T-Square, and Drafting Machines
  • Straight edge
  • Erasing shield
  • Drafting tape
  • Computer-aided design software


Dimensions, notation, title blocks, and symbols may be included in working drawings. These must correspond to industry standards for their full meaning to be recognized. Working drawings or a separate specification can both include specification information, however, information shouldn’t be repeated because this could lead to confusion and become contradictory. Drawings should be made at a scale that reflects the level of detail that is needed to convey the information. Moreover, different line widths might be employed to make particular parts more visible.

Drawings must be carefully organized to convey the information required to complete specific tasks in the works. They may be divided into packages to provide more clarity so that information is specially customized to different works, components, suppliers, or trades. It is crucial to take into account both the drawings’ actual usage and the client’s for it. Working drawings may be created for a variety of purposes, including regulatory permissions, contractors’ planning of building projects, site instructions, the purchase of components, the creation of shop drawings, the selection of subcontractors, and more. When the work is finished, working drawings may be updated to incorporate “as constructed” information, which reflects changes that may have been made to the works throughout the construction process.



Designers including architects, engineers, and interior designers used concept drawings or sketches as a quick and easy way to explore initial ideas for designs. These drawings are frequently done freehand. They serve just as a means of researching and communicating design principles and aesthetic ideas; they are not intended to be accurate or conclusive. Concept drawings can also be used to explore a design’s more technical aspects, offering a preliminary response and potential solutions to issues, limitations, and opportunities like service layout, structure, construction method, solar paths and shading, prevailing wind, circulation patterns, relationships between site features, and so on.

In the same way that a designer’s sketch is frequently more evocative than a finished painting, concept drawings can occasionally capture the sense of an idea more clearly than later drawings or even the completed building. Preliminary sketches capture and communicate the essence of an idea, focusing on its driving features. The concept design can be as simple as a series of sketches, ideas, and explorations, or it can be very detailed and include design illustrations, possible plans, sections, and elevations, as well as 3D models of a development strategy.



To develop and communicate ideas about a growing design, design drawings are used:

They might merely show the client the capacity of a specific design team to carry out the design at the early stages of the project phase (during the design and tender process). Then they could be applied to:

  • Create the brief and communicate it.
  • Examine potential sites and weigh your selections.
  • Create a coordinated and coherent design based on the idea that has been approved.
  • Inform other stakeholders, including the local planning authority, the building control body, contractors, and suppliers, about the created design.
  • Keep a record of the completed structure.
  • Keep track of any modifications made to the finished building.

Some of these drawings aren’t typically regarded as “design” drawings because the design itself hasn’t started or has essentially already been finished. However, for them to be useful, almost all of them must have some aspect of research or design development.


Very broadly, design drawings are categorized as:

  • Feasibility studies.
  • Options appraisals.
  • Concept drawings. Some designers will differentiate between ‘conceptual design’ and ‘schematic design’. In this case, the ‘concept’ is the initial design idea, whereas the ‘scheme’ develops the concept, taking on board more functional and practical considerations.
  • Detailed design drawings (or developed design drawings).
  • Technical drawings.
  • Tender drawings.
  • Shop drawings, installation drawings and construction drawings.

From block and massing drawings and sketches to incredibly thorough technical drawings that describe every component in a way that makes them possible to manufacture and operate, design drawings will grow in detail. While creating design drawings, it’s important to think about their intended use, the information they should convey, and the client for that information. Their structure, content, scope, size, and other aspects will depend on this.

Construction drawings are generally referred to as such since they are part of the production information that is included in the contract paperwork for the construction activities after the tender documentation. This indicates that they are important legally and are a part of the contract between the company and the contractor. Construction drawings serve the primary function of providing a graphic depiction of the proposed construction. To the extent possible, doubt and confusion should be avoided by keeping construction drawings brief and coordinated. It is possible to reduce misunderstandings and delays by carefully coordinating the drawings. 

The materials, standards, processes, and other factors needed to complete the work will be described in the specifications. The graphic representation provided by construction drawings shows the component placement, details, size, and other information. Floor plans, elevations, sections, and detailed drawings typically make a full set of construction drawings and collectively they serve to show the building completely.
