Is the furniture the right scale for your room?
Tape together sheets of newspaper to match the width x depth of the furniture pieces you’re considering. Place them on the floor and walk around them. Put dining chairs on the newsprint to help visualize the mass and 34” height. Is there enough clearance to walk around it, or would a different floor arrangement work better? Is it too large or too small in scale for the space? It’s easy to move newsprint until you’re satisfied with the results.
Will your sofa or chair fit through the door? Or up the stairs?
Measure all doorways, exterior and interior, that the new furniture needs to clear. Hallways or stairways may also be transit points, so measure there too.
Note the measurements of the furniture you're planning to order:
If the width or depth of your furniture is larger than entryway or hallway dimensions, consult your Calico sales associate to determine if the furniture can be angled to fit.
