Measuring Guide

Will your new furniture fit into your home?

In the excitement of buying their new furniture, some of our Customers forget to check that their carefully chosen purchase will actually fit into their home.  Dansk will do everything possible to expedite the delivery, but can accept no responsibility for goods that are too large to get into the house.  To avoid the embarrassment and potential cost of such a disaster, use the simple guide below to ensure a successful delivery ...

Measure the entrance to your property

Measure the heights (A) and the widths (B) of any hallways and door accesses, as well as the entry clearance (C).

Measure your chosen furniture

Either measure your chosen item yourself, or ask a member of staff to do it for you.  For sofas, first measure the width (i), followed by the diagonal depth (ii).  The diagonal depth may be determined by first placing a straight edge from the highest point of the back frame (excluding cushions) to the front of the arm.  Then measure from the bottom rear corner of the sofa up to the point that bisects the straight edge.

Sofa width (i) must be less than entryway dimensions (A) or (C)
Diagonal depth (ii) must be less than entryway dimension (B)

For cabinets, measure the diagonal height at the widest point (i) and depth (ii).

Diagonal height (i) must be less than entryway dimensions (A) or (C)
Depth (ii) must be less than entryway dimension (B)

Using the instructions above, it should now be clear whether your new furniture will flt, but please also take note of any other obstacles such as ceilings, fixtures, interior walls, stairwell banisters and turns.
