Floorplanner.com is a wanna-be architectures dream. You actually design the room, home or yard down to the very inch.

In less than half an hour I was able to make a layout my entire home. It is a bit advanced and will require a little practice to use but once you understand the controls you’ll have no problem.  Here’s my home in full detail, even the window and door placement is correct:

The Room Planner by Urban Barn

The Room Planner is similar to the Floorplanner but it focuses more on rooms and not entire homes. All appliances and furniture are pre-drawn and you simply place them wherever you want. I used it to to layout my dream bedroom remodel and also made layouts of the kitchen and living room.
