1. Draw up your measurements
Simply measure up your space and enter the measurements and start to draw up your plans!
2. Create a plan of movement
3. Plan your layout!
4. Get proportion right & don’t buy items too big / small for the space
This applies to all furniture, but our main tip here is to remember that it a sofa shouldn’t ideally take up more than two thirds of the wall it backs up on. Also, remember to check that the depth of the sofa is going to be practical and visually pleasing for the amount of space you have to work with.
Once you have worked out your ideal furniture, get some masking tape and draw it out on the floor. This will really help you visualise it in your space as you can see it in it’s actual form on the floor.
5. Check access to the room
Always remember to accurately check if your furniture can actually fit into your home.
- Door widths
- Tight corners
- Lift heights & widths
- Window opening dimensions
- Whether radiators may cause issues
- If pendant lights should be removed
Also check any entry routes that the sofa will need to pass through. Also find out the height of it and checking whether the legs are removable.
If a sofa arrives and it doesn’t fit, don’t worry there are options to consider
