It’s important to choose furniture keeping the size of your room in mind. A big piece of furniture might not be the most ideal for a small living room.
Measure any hallways, doorways, corners, stairs, or any other areas through which the furniture will be carried through, to prevent potential delivery mishaps. You do not want to buy furniture only to end up discovering that you cannot get it delivered into your house.
It is generally a good idea to leave extra room in front of your sofas to accommodate for an ottoman or a coffee table.
