Blueprints are designs used to create buildings, products and more. Blueprints got their name from the historic process of creating technical drawings on paper coated with a chemical mixture that would turn the background blue while the drawing lines remained white when exposed to light.
Blueprints are detailed drawings referenced to build something. They can include many types of drawings and diagrams such as floor plans, elevations and details. A floor plan shows a bird’s-eye view of a building or structure and typically displays the location of walls, fixtures and furniture.
