Often, it also contains the layout of the furniture and plumbing located in these premises.

All listed information is presented on the Reflected ceiling plans in a clear graphical form, indicating the links, dimensions, distances, and other technical parameters. The well thought-out and technically competent design project, and reliable calculations at the ceiling plan design, help the builders work precisely and quickly, while the more detailed is your plan, the easier it will be in implementation. In addition, a detailed plan allows, if necessary, correcting some possible shortcomings before the installation work is started.

The types of lighting fixtures, their location and design are selected in such way that the rooms will be filled with light, maximally approximated to the natural daylight, while in some cases, there is used a special approach and unique design by utilizing additional lighting, making it possible to vary the illumination's degree, to create a special atmosphere of mystery in a room, and other methods.

Example 6: Apartment Reflected Ceiling Plan

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the combination of libraries from the Reflected Ceiling Plans Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.

The lighting or illumination is the process of filling some space with light to achieve the practical or aesthetic effect. As a result of lighting, all objects in an illuminated space become visible. The lighting is produced both by the natural daylight and by the lamp fixtures of various types, and other artificial light sources. In a modern design, the lighting has not only the functional and practical use, but also often is a key part of interior design. This Reflected ceiling plan (RCP) sample illustrates the lighting scheme of an apartment. The scheme of lighting space allows you to clearly designate the location of lighting fittings and their number, to clarify their types, to calculate the degree of illumination the room, to correct quantity of lamps, if needed, and certainly clearly mount the lighting according to the scheme. All types of lighting fixtures have their own conventional designation and therefore are immediately recognizable on the diagrams.
