How to Choose the Right Size for the Dining Room Table

First measure the available space and consider where the table will be placed. Keep the space taken up by chairs in mind, as well as the walking space needed. The table is usually centred underneath the ceiling light. If you have multiple ceiling lights or perhaps wall lights, the limitation no longer applies.  Also consider the purpose of the table. If you are only going to use it for dining, then you will not need to be concerned about additional space for doing chores such as homework or office work.

How to Choose the Bed Headboard Size

When it comes to the bed headboard, consider the height of the ceiling. You will want a lower headboard if the ceiling is low. Also consider the bed size as the headboard should not overshadow the bed, but still form the focus point.  Will the bed be placed in the centre of the room? If so, measure walking space around the bed as well. Leave enough room between the headboard and the cupboards as well as all entrances in order to ensure comfortable walking and opening or closing of doors.

How to Choose the Right Sofa Corner Unit Size

Whether you are only going to select a sofa or a complete corner unit, it is imperative to measure the room and consider where you will place the coffee table if relevant, entertainment system and any other equipment. Also consider where the windows and doors are. The unit should fit comfortably into the space without people having difficulty passing seated guests to get from one side to other side of the room.

The above are just three tips to keep in mind regarding the size of furniture. Also keep the door entrance width and height in mind, since the furniture must be able to fit through such. Use the information on our website to help you choose not only the most affordable furniture, but also the right sizes to fit your particular space requirements.
