measure your space

Identify the space in the room
where you intend your piece to sit.
Using painter's tape, mark out the
dimensions on the floor. Does it fit?
Is the scale right for the room? You
can also create a floor plan using
our online room planner.

compare dimensions

Consider the furniture to be delivered and determine if it can go
straight through entryways or if it will have to go in at an angle or on its end.

Sofa width must be less than
entryway dimensions A or C.

Diagonal Depth

Diagonal depth must be less than entryway
dimension B. Diagonal depth is helpful
when determining if the piece can be
brought in on its end.

Armless Piece

For any piece that does not have arms
(such as a wedge), do not use diagonal
depth measurement. Instead, be certain
that the back height measurement is less
than the door width (B).

measure all doorways, passages & stairwells

Measure the interior height and width of every doorway, staircase, elevator and hallway that
the item will pass through. Also consider architectural details and low hanging fixtures as you measure.
