Measuring up for furniture

If you are buying new furniture, it is important to measure room before you finalise your order. 
If you have your room measurements with you instore or online we can show you how to work with the space you have, no matter how large or small it is.

Selecting Your New Furniture

We have full measurements (in H x W x D cm or L x W x H cm) available for every piece of furniture we sell,  making it easy for  you to work out exactly what will fit your room. All our furniture comes with free nationwide delivery as standard and is assembled upon delivery. If the furniture is delivered fully assembled, measuring up for access first is essential.

Tips for Choosing Furniture to Suit your Space

You will want your new piece of furniture to be in proportion to the rest of the room. A great way to check is to map out the space using newspaper, or mark out your floor with masking tape. Make sure you have enough space to walk around your furniture, open doors, drawers etc.

With dining tables, you need to make sure you have at least 60cm clearance for the chair when it's out from the table, in order to sit comfortably. Don't forget to allow for the drawers on a drawer divan or storage bed.

Take extra care to measure up if you are ordering one of our larger dining tables that comes fully assembled, especially if it has a cross piece. Allow for anything immovable that's going to get in the way of your furniture's passage to its destination, such as bannisters and radiators.

Make sure the furniture will fit through the door when we 
deliver it. If you think it's going to be tricky, then let us know and we can discuss the exact details for delivery and whether it will be possible. Some of our most popular sofa beds come without arms, so they’re perfect for smaller spaces or challenging access.  Some of our sofas can be delivered with bolt-on arms (often the source of the problem) or in two pieces—if you are in any doubt give our expert staff a call or come instore and we will find a piece to suit your tastes and requirements.
