Always make sure to measure the area where you want to put your furniture. It is helpful to look around your surrounding area & things that cannot be moved. Often, it might be helpful to use a measuring tape to precisely measure the space you have to keep your furniture.
Measure starting from inside of your door. Be careful to note how wide your doors can open, and accommodate for doorknobs. If the doors can be removed, that might be a good idea to prevent damages.
Don't fail to measure the height & width of your stairways and bottom steps to the ceiling. Be sure to look after any sloped or curved surfaces.
Take into account for any low-hanging ceiling lamps or fans, breakable decorations that cannot be removed, stairway doors or turns, or angled ceilings or walls. Be sure to completely clear a path for your furniture to be moved in.
If you are living in a building-flat with an elevator, it is essential that you measure the interior of your elevator as well as the door openings themselves.Taking diagonal measurements from the bottom of the doors to the back upper corner of the elevator are helpful for taller furniture. Also, you may want to ask your building management about service elevator access.
Sometimes the best way to know what you want is to compare it to what you have. Comparing your current sofas measurement with ours will give you an idea of how big our sofas are. For example, if you find that your current sofa doesn't have enough seating depth for your legs, you'll want to find a sofa of ours that has a deeper seating depth dimensions.
