What is a drop zone in a house plan?

Drop zones are the places where you can put your mail and other items that you want to get rid of or that don’t have a home. For example, if there is an umbrella stand in your entryway and it’s too small for a purse or briefcase, then it would be a good place for them.

What is a drop zone in a house plan?

A drop zone is a place where you can put your things. You can use it as a media center, an office or even a playroom.

A drop zone is usually at the top of the house plan, which means they are usually very long and skinny. Drop zones also give you flexibility to move them around in your house design. For example if you don’t like the location of your kitchen sink or something else needs to go there then just move it!

The size of the drop zone is determined by its height and width in feet (ft). The length is measured from one end wall to another across all three directions (north – south; east – west; up – down). If we know how tall each wall section should be then we can add up how many feet long our drop zone will be since it follows these same rules:

Width = 1/6 x Length + 1/4 x Width + 1/2 x Height

How to create a drop zone in my house?

Drop zones are areas of your house where you can drop and store loose things. They are great for places like the kitchen and living room, which have lots of foot traffic. You probably have them in your own home already. A drop zone is something that helps make your house more efficient and nicer to live in, but what is a drop zone exactly?

Drop zones are usually small areas off of hallways or entrances that people will often use to leave their bags when they come into the home. Drop zones don’t need much space—you just need to be able to stack things vertically so they don’t get in the way or cause tripping hazards during normal activity.

Drop zones can be set up anywhere there isn’t an existing wall-mounted shelf or countertop (or anywhere where someone might trip over it).

The drop zone was created to hold all your stuff

The drop zone is a place in your house plan that was created to hold all your stuff. It’s a location where you can put things when you come and go.

The most common use for the drop zone is when coming home from work or errands, but it can also be used as an entry from a garage into the main part of the house. It allows for easy organization and accessibility without cluttering up other rooms or hallways.

There are many different kinds of drop zones

There are many different kinds of drop zones, and they can be used in many different ways. For example, if your house plan has a mudroom or laundry room, you might want to include a drop zone there so that when someone walks in the door with their dirty clothes and shoes, they don’t have to walk through the entire house. A drop zone could also be used for mail or keys (and other small objects) if you have a separate entrance for guests who come by frequently. It’s also common for builders to use a “toy box” as a drop zone—a place where kids can put all their toys after playing outside or inside the house.

You can create a simple custom drop zone

You can create a simple custom drop zone for your house plan by following these steps:

  • Choose an area that is easily accessible and close to the entry door.
  • Ensure you have space for a container large enough to hold all of your mail on any given day.
  • Try not to place it too far from the kitchen or any other main rooms in the home so you don’t have to walk too far with bags full of groceries or mail when they come in.
  • Getting rid of clutter starts with having a place to put things instead of just dumping them wherever you happen to be going by when they come off your body.
  • Make a drop zone in your home where you can take off your shoes, hats, gloves and other outerwear when coming in from outside.
  • Put the mail in its own place so it doesn’t get mixed up with everything else on the counter or table.
  • Have an area for recyclables and trash so that people aren’t rummaging through the house looking for them (or worse yet—throwing them in the wrong places).


The drop zone is a great place for all your messy kid stuff, and it helps you keep it organized. You can create one in just minutes by adding some shelves or cabinets. We hope you enjoyed learning more about this important feature of modern home designs!
