Our furniture self-measuring guide
We want to make sure we can successfully deliver your furniture, so you can start arranging your interiors and enjoy your new items. Read our tips below on how to accurately self-measure your space before delivery.
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.
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.
