The Ultimate Furniture Measuring Guide: Ensure The Perfect Fit In Your Space

Buying furniture can be an exciting experience, but it's important to make sure you choose pieces that fit your space perfectly. That's why it's essential to know how to measure your area before making any purchases. This furniture measuring guide will give you valuable tips on how to measure your space accurately, so you can choose furniture that will look great and slot seamlessly into your home.

Will It Fit Into My Home?

Take measurements, using a tape measure, of the width and height of every doorway and entryway that the furniture needs to go through in order to get to its destination. Make sure that when the furniture is delivered or relocated, it will fit through these openings. Take into consideration the landing space just above the stairs if the furniture needs to be carried upstairs. Manoeuvring large furniture may be challenging in areas with shallow ceilings. Make sure to include obstacles (e.g. radiators and light fixtures) in your initial measurements.

Furniture Dimensions

All of our beautiful pieces of furniture have their dimensions detailed in the description of the product. These are measured in centimetres. Measure the width, height, and depth of the furniture to ensure that it will fit into your desired space.

Width: Measure from the widest point horizontally.
Height: Measure from the highest point vertically.
Depth: Measure from the front to the back.

Furniture proportionality in a room is essential for creating a balanced and visually appealing living space. For example, in larger rooms, bigger furniture pieces can help fill the space comfortably without making it appear sparse or too cramped.
