Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Room

Room drawing - step 1
How to Draw a Room Step 01

1. Begin by drawing a bookshelf. Use straight lines to create the "L" shaped furniture. Draw another "L" shaped line inside the shape, and connect the corners with a straight line. Enclose rectangles within the shape to form the shelves and cabinet doors.

Draw small ovals to form the handles of the cabinet. Then, on the tabletop portion, draw a small oval with two curved lines emerging from it. This forms the base of the lamp.

2. Enclose a narrow, curved parallelogram to create the lampshade. Enclose an oval at its top using a curved line. Then, draw the bed. Use straight lines to enclose the rectangular footboard, mattress, and sides of the headboard.

Use a curved line to complete the headboard. Then, draw the pillow. Use curved lines to enclose the loosely rectangular shape, noting the teardrop-shaped tufts at each corner.

3. Detail the bed using straight and curved lines. Contour the pillow and footboard. Then, outline the turned-down comforter of the neatly made bed. After that, outline the room in the style of a perspective drawing. Enclose a square for the back wall, partially hidden by the furniture.

Then, draw straight lines extending outward from each corner to indicate the adjacent walls, floor, and ceiling. Along one wall, enclose a trapezoid within a trapezoid.

This forms the door and the door frame, aligning the rectangular shapes with the room's perspective. Use an oval to form the doorknob.

4. Draw a small desk or bedside table at the foot of the bed, erasing as necessary. Use straight lines to outline the rectangular top, front, and side; the inlay on the front; and the sides of the tabletop.

Then, draw a potted flower on top. Use curved lines to outline the pot, leaves, stem, and daisy-like blossom.
