The first walk-through

Measure the area where you plan to put your item, considering any fixed widths that might cause obstructions. We suggest doing a walk-through prior to delivery, from the delivery truck, to the chosen area in your home.

Remove any fixtures

When measuring the height and width of any doorways and hallways, account for handles, trims, skirting and handrails that cannot be easily removed. It's also a good idea to consider other options, including back and side doors, or garages.

Using a lift

If a lift is required to access your home, be sure to measure the height and depth of its door, and also diagonally from the bottom centre of the door to the back ceiling. Note down how much leeway you have.

Measuring stairs

Measure the width of the stairways and depth of the landings, including any banisters. We also recommend measuring the top and bottom of the stairs to the wall, and the ceiling height from both the bottom and top step, and the landing to the ceiling.

Clear the path

Remove any fixtures that might get in the way, including light and ceiling fixtures, artwork, rugs, decorative accessories and plants.

Compare your measurements

Compare the detailed measurements you've taken throughout your home to the dimensions of the furniture item (you can find these on our product pages). Check the depth of your chosen piece, and ensure that the width and height is less than that of the stairways, hallways and doorways in your home.

It’s time for delivery

Unfortunately, we are unable to move any existing furniture, so double-check that the path is clear, and protect any floors or furniture - you'll then be ready to welcome your new piece into your home.
