1) Measure door/ entryway width and height – This is the first step and it’s crucial. Many apartments and homes have varied entrance widths and heights and it’s better to be safe than sorry. There is nothing worse than buying the perfect couch and it not fitting through the door. This happens to a lot of people…don’t be one of them!

2) Measure the room – Measure the length, width and ceiling height of the room. You want to make sure that a full dining set or bedroom set will fit effortlessly in a room. If your measurements show overlap, it’s best to get something smaller or continue browsing for furniture dimensions that will work with your room.

3) Room to move – Choose a furniture arrangement that allows you to move freely around a room. A living room should have a clear path that directs traffic directly to the sofa or sectional, as well as a path to the dining area or kitchen. Make sure to decorate with common obstacles in mind such as lights, ceiling fans or chandeliers so that they do not get in the way.
