How to Measure to Make Sure Your New Sofa Fits in Your Home

Before ordering a sofa, remember to measure so you can make sure it will fit in your home.  You will have to measure the doorways, and any halls and stairs which your chosen piece of furniture will need to pass through.


First, take a note of the height, depth and width (at the widest point of the armrests!) of your preferred sofa.


Measure the front door width.  If the height of the sofa is less than the width of the door , the sofa will fit through. 


If there is an obstruction that prevents the door fully opening, open the door as much as possible and measure from the outer edge of the door to the inner edge of the door frame at the narrowest point.

If it is too narrow it may be still be possible for the sofa to pass through carried upright. Measure the door height. If it is greater than the sofa’s width, the sofa will fit through.


For the sofa to fit through hallways and internal doors, measure the width of areas the sofa must pass through.  Note any obstructions, such as radiators.  The sofa’s height needs to be less than these measurements.


If you are planning to place the sofa upstairs, measure the stairway at the narrowest point.  If it is wider than the sofa’s height, your furniture will fit.  If the sofa needs to be lifted over a banister, measure the narrowest distance between the banister and the ceiling. If there is a landing, its depth, height and width must be greater than the width, depth and height of your sofa.


If your building has a lift, measure the open-door height, width, and depth of the lift to see if the sofa will fit.


To make sure that your new sofa will comfortably fit into your room, it is a good idea to mark out the space where you want the sofa and measure it. Leave sufficient room around the sofa so that it will not block access to cupboards or drawers and that there is enough space for people to pass comfortably.
