Will it fit?

A hassle-free delivery might just start with a tape measure. Follow our 3-step guide to measure your space prior to purchase. Best part? It's quick and easy.

Measure the entryways.

  • Measure your front door
  • Check your delivery path (i.e., any area the furniture will pass through)

Tip: Large or oversized furniture pieces like sofas, mattresses and headboards might need more space than you think.

  • Measure the room’s door

Check Furniture Dimensions

Check the piece’s measurements (height x width x depth) under Dimensions on the item’s page.

Visualize furniture in your space by using painter’s tape or masking tape to map out the exact dimensions.
Purchased furniture should be at least 4 inches less than the passage measurements to move it easily and safely.
