HOW TO MEASURE When considering your new furniture, it’s important to think carefully about both the space it will occupy and the access into the room. To avoid any problems that may arise please use the following guide: Make a Plan. Judge how much space your new furniture will occupy by placing newspaper on the floor to the right size, remembering to allow room for reclining sofas and to pull out dining chairs or divan drawers. Measure the Access. Measure any potential problem points along the access route to the room of your choice, particularly door heights and widths, narrow corridors, tight corners and stair bannisters. Please take note of any other obstacles such as ceiling fixtures or wall lights, and plan to remove all breakable objects on the route. Measure your Furniture as follows, or ask us to do it for you. Sofas. Measure the width (shown as W) and diagonal depth (shown as X) on our diagrams. To get the diagonal depth, remove any back cushions, then measure the distance from the rear corner of the sofa to the centre of a line from the top of the arm to the top of the highest point of the back. The width must be less than the door height (shown as A) and the turning area (shown as C). The diagonal depth must be less than the door width (shown as B). Cabinets. Measure the diagonal height at the widest point (shown as Y) and the depth (shown as Z). The diagonal height must be less than the door height (shown as A) and the turning area (shown as C). The depth must be less than the door width (shown as B). ACCESS INTO YOUR HOME Access Route. We will do all we can to make sure your new furniture reaches the room for which it was intended, but unfortunately we can’t accept responsibility for determining that the goods are fit for purpose and the dimensions are suitable. If access is difficult, a door or window may need to be removed so it is essential to arrange this beforehand and agree the associated costs. Delivery Enquires.
