Suggestions from Derbyshires on How to Measure for Furniture Delivery
Measure Your Room
Before choosing furniture, consider the windows, closets, heating vents and electrical outlets in the room. Does a door open into the space? Next, measure the perimeter of the room and draw a simple floor plan to plot your furniture placement. In addition to each room's standard furnishings, you'll want to plan for other items such as ottomans and occasional tables. A bench at the end of the bed or extra storage can make a difference in any room.
Measure for Delivery
Once you've selected your new furniture, it is important to be sure that it can be delivered through all entryways, elevators and stairways. Measure the height and width of your entryway, including elevator doors and interiors. Use the furniture measurements to determine whether or not you will need to bring the furniture straight in, at an angle or on end. Make sure that there is a clear and unobstructed path in front of and beyond each doorway. Make note of any light fixtures, decorative mouldings, interior walls, ceiling heights, stairwells and banisters that may pose a problem once furniture is inside. We can suggest products that are available in two pieces for easier delivery.
Measure your Television and Media Equipment
Measure your television and other components that you would like to place in your furniture. Purchase your television before your furniture and have the outside dimensions available. You will need the Width x Depth x Height.
