How to Measure Furniture for Delivery


Shopping for furniture can be a daunting task. You want to make sure that you get the perfect item that fits just right in your space. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to help you measure furniture for delivery from Bel Furniture in Corpus Christi, TX!

Measure Your Space

The first and most important step is to measure your space! Take out a measuring tape and carefully measure the length and width of the area where you plan on putting your new piece of furniture. This will give you a better understanding of how much space you have to work with when selecting the right piece.

Measure the Furniture

Once you know how much space, you have to work with, it’s time to measure the furniture. Many pieces, especially sofas and sectionals, come in modular sections which are sold separately. Measure each individual component as well as the entire set combined so that you know exactly what size pieces you need. 

How to Measure a Sofa or Sectional

To accurately measure a sofa or sectional, start by measuring its length, width, and height. Remember that if your sofa is made up of multiple components that are sold separately, each of them must be measured individually and then added together for an accurate total measurement. Additionally, consider any additional elements such as armrests or chaise lounges that might add more inches to your total measurements.   How to Measure for a

Bookcase or Dresser 

Measuring a bookcase or dresser is slightly different than measuring other furniture pieces because they don’t take up floor space like sofas or sectionals do. Instead, focus on determining how many shelves (if applicable) will fit into your allotted space as well as the height and depth of each shelf individually. Additionally, think about whether there are any other items (such as drawers) that might affect the overall measurements before making your final decision.  

Compare the Two Measurements  

Once you’ve measured both your available space and potential furniture pieces it’s time to compare them side-by-side. Make sure all measurements line up properly – if one item is too large or small for another then it won’t fit properly no matter how hard you try! As long as everything lines up correctly then congratulations – it looks like you found yourself a perfect fit!
