MEASURING GUIDE - SOFAS & BEDS
It’s important to check that your new sofa or chair will fit into your home, as inability to access a chosen room is the biggest cause of disappointment when purchasing furniture. Please read our simple measuring guide to ensure that we can successfully deliver your sofa.
KNOW YOUR SOFA DIMENSIONS
You can find the height, width and depth and seat height for each sofa on the relevant product page. Take a note of the height (A), width (B) and depth (C).
Measuring Your Home
To make sure your new sofa will get through your front door, you’ll need to measure the doors height (A) and width (B). Check that the width of your door is greater than the height of the sofa, allowing a bit of room either side. Remember to measure any other doors that sofa will have to go through. The legs of our sofas (excluding Lola and Sophia) will be removed for delivery, meaning the total height will actually be slightly less than stated. If you'd like the specific height of the legs on your sofa, please contact us.
Measure from your hallway wall, opposite to the entrance of the chosen room and make sure there’s enough room to manoeuvre the sofa into your room of choice and make sure the narrowest door width (A) will accommodate. Remember to take account of any radiators, shelves, skirting boards or light fittings that may get in your way - make a note of the narrowest point (B). If you’ve got to get around the corner, measure the space at its narrowest point to make sure the width is greater than the height of your sofa.
If your sofa needs to go upstairs, measure the width of the staircase at its narrowest point (A). Don’t forget to take any handrails, banisters and light fittings into account and also consider the height of the stairwell. If your sofa needs to be lifted over the banister, please make sure that the space between the banister and the ceiling is greater than the depth of your sofa (B). If your stairs go round a corner, make sure there is enough ceiling height to bring the sofa upright. Distance between the stairs and the ceiling should be greater than the width of your sofa. Once the sofa is up the stairs, make sure there is enough room on the landing to accommodate it.
If your building has a lift that our delivery team will need to use, you’ll need to measure the height (A), width (B) and depth (C) of the lift’s interior and the size of its door.
Bed Size & Home Measuring Guide - Will it fit?
Nothing should get in the way of you enjoying your new bed. When it comes to creating the perfect sleeping space, you first need to know how big you can go. Here’s a basic chart to the UK standard mattress and divan bed sizes to help you make the most of your bedroom
Please Note - metric and imperial sizes are not exact equivalents. There can be a tolerence of +/-2cm(+/-0.8ins) with all quoted measurements
Due to the vast range of bed frames - all with unique design features - bed frames are always described using the size of the mattress it takes. For example, a double (135cm) bed frame will take a standard UK double sized mattress (135cm width x 190cm length) but the outer frame itself can be bigger. Although most bed frames are flat packed, check the dimensions section of your new bed for the exact measurements to make sure your bedroom is big enough.
Home Measuring Guide
One of the most common problems we face when delivering divan beds and mattresses is making sure there is enough space to carry your new bed or mattress through your home to the room of your choice. We know everyone’s home is different and not all stairs are the same. That’s why making sure your chosen bed fits through your doorways and up your stairs could prevent a lot of problems and disappointment on the day of your delivery. Here is a handy guide to make sure your bed will fit into your home.
Bed sizes Ensuring your bed measures up Before buying a bed, some of the key considerations you have to make first revolve around its size. Will it meet your own height requirements? Fit in your bedroom? Will have no problem being carried into your property? This page is dedicated to helping you answer those questions and find the right size bed to suit your tastes, budget and available living space.
Step 1: Check the Dimensions Take the widest dimensions of the bed you want to buy and check it will fit comfortably in the space you'd like to put it. Ideally, you'll want at least 24 in’s (or 60cm) wide of walking around space on either side of the bed and at its foot. Tip: Using masking tape, mark out the dimensions of the bed you’d like to buy to see how much space it will take up and how easily you can move around it.
Step 2: Check the Surroundings Make sure you allow enough space around your bed - don't forget to take doors, wardrobes and drawers into consideration to ensure your new bed isn't going to block any of them when they're fully open. If you’re ordering a bed with storage drawers, you’ll need to allow a minimum of 55cm on either side for the drawers to be pulled out.
Step 3: Check Your Home Using the bed's widest dimensions, check it will fit comfortably through all your doorways, hallways and up any stairs without damaging paintwork, ornaments, picture frames or windows. Remember, most premium and firm mattresses (not included boxed mattresses) can also be quite deep and should not be bent or folded. For stairs, you need to measure the shortest straight-line distance from the bulkhead to the nearest step.
When ordering beds and furniture it is important to check that it will fit into your house and your room. Please check all doors, stairways and the space it has to go into carefully. Whilst our delivery drivers will do all they can to assist with large awkward deliveries, if the worst happens and it really won’t fit in, goods will be left at your property, we will no longer be responsible for goods left in your possession.
