How to measure furniture for your home
Ensure your EQ3 piece will fit easily into your home – and into your room – with this quick guide.
STEP 1: PLAN YOUR SPACE
To get the dimensions (width, height, and depth) of your favourite piece, click on the “Details” tab listed on the product page. The easiest way to plan your space is with an old-fashioned pen and paper: measure and draw a scaled floor plan of your room and then block out each piece in your room to assess which configurations and sizes will fit best.
STEP 2: MEASURE ENTRY POINTS
Determine the path your new furniture will take from the delivery truck to its intended destination inside of your home or apartment, and measure the height and width of every doorway, wall opening, hallway, staircase, and elevator door. It’s also important to measure the clearance length beyond each entry point.
STEP 3: CHECK FOR OBSTACLES
Note decorative and architectural details that could get in the way of moving the furniture through your home. This includes ceiling and light fixtures, moldings, bulkheads, stair banisters, interior walls, and turning radii.
STEP 4: CONFIRM THE FIT
For sofas and other upholstery products: measure the width and diagonal depth. The width must be less than the height of each entry point, as well as less than the clearance length beyond each doorway. The diagonal depth must be less than the width of each entry point.
For other furniture products such as shelving, bookcases, entertainment units and other storage pieces: measure the diagonal height and depth. The diagonal height must be less than the height of each entry point, as well as less than the clearance length beyond each doorway. The depth must be less than the width of each entry point.
