Default Drawing room layouts with dimensions


What should I use for drawing rooms in word? I am simply wanting 2 dimensional renderings of a lab room? I tried shapes but I can't figure out how to show doors and remove lines when a room is an odd shape? Any help appreciated.

You do NOT want to use Word (a word processor) to define a room showing doors, windows or any type of scale. If anything, PowerPoint would be a better option...and even then I am not so sure you are going to get what you want. I spent the better part of the last 15 years constructing those type of pictorials but did so in suitable software (MS Visio, AutoCAD, et al).

Do you have access to Visio? That would be your best option.

Thanks Jim. I am not really looking for an in depth schematic I just need to show doors, room sizes and where some equipment is placed. It will not be used for construction or something requiring a lot of detail. I am just trying to show the walls and entry ways.

PowerPoint would work well for that process then. If needed in Word, develop the object in PowerPoint and then insert as a "picture" into Word. Your profile indicates you have Office 2016 and PowerPoint should be included in that package.
