Tips: Will your furniture fit?

Thinking of a mixing it up a little at your place?

Take a few tips from Urban Rhythm at Nunawading Homemaker HQ.

Before you order that four-seat sofa or eight-seater dining table you’ve fallen in love with, be sure to check that it will fit inside the room it is destined for, as well as through all the passage ways to get there.

A little thought up front can potentially save you unnecessary expense, inconvenience and disappointment.

Will the furniture fit?

Check that you’ll be able to get your furniture into its final position. 

Make a newspaper template of the furniture footprint, then place it in the intended position on the floor of your room.  See that you can move around the piece, and that it won’t block heating or cooling ducts for example.

Do you have a lift or stairs to navigate? Do you have a tight corner to turn, such as a narrow apartment corridor? 

Such spaces need to be considered, as your furniture will need to be able to pass through these areas to reach its final destination.

What is the parking access like at your place? Do you have a narrow laneway or a steep driveway to navigate? Can a truck park close to your entrance?  

These are questions that need to be answered so that your furniture can be delivered smoothly.

It might simply mean that we organise a smaller truck to deliver your goods so it can fit in the laneway outside your home.

Access concerns

Advise your contultant about any access concerns. 

If you have any doubts, your consultant will provide you with a Delivery Access Questionnaire. Complete it as accurately as possible so that our warehouse manager can help determine accessibility. Photos of tight corners and entrances will also be helpful in our assessment.

From this we will make an assessment whether or not we need to either provide a larger delivery crew, modify construction of the furniture that won’t fit, or suggest to you a more appropriately sized piece.

With a little planning, most access challenges can be overcome. Being prepared is the key.
