I know this will sound horribly low-tech, but...  We've had good
success with paper cutouts.  I've used a commercial drawing program
that allows you to create objects with exact dimensions (Visio at
http://www.visio.com), as well as outlining the room and utility
locations.  You can either drag the objects around on the screen or
print them, cut them out, and physically shuffle them around on a
paper floorplan.  As I said, low-tech, but it works well.
