How to Measure Your Space

Sizing is one of the key elements when it comes to your sofa

Size matters.. when it comes to a sofa anyway. Getting the size of your sofa right is key and the guides below will help you out when it comes to making it spot on.
All of our sofas are bespoke, made to order, uniquely for you. This means they can be pretty much any size. We can also adjust heights and depths of your sofas should you wish. Below you will find some diagrams to assist you with measuring your space. This will help you to make the best use of the space you have available and guide you to getting the right sofa for you. 

We will happily help you out when it comes to measuring your space as best we can, and we always send diagrams for confirmation before anything goes into production.

A Standard Sofa

1 . Measure A to B

2. Check Depth and Height 

Our standard sofa are quite simple, the dimension we require is usually the left to right dimension of your sofa. The majority of our models are set at certain sizes, but if you let us know we can always tell you the closest size. 

Also make sure the depth of your sofa is correct. You can see the sofa depth on each page, but we can adjust that if needs be, either making it deeper or shallower depending on what you need. The height is adjustable also. 


An L-Shape Corner Sofa

L-Shape Right

1. Are you looking for a left hand or Right Hand Corner Sofa?

2. Measure A to B

3. Left-Hand Corner - Measure A to C

Right-Hand Corner - Measure B to C


3. Check Depth and Height 

For a corner sofa we usually require two dimensions, how long across the back, and how long on the side. The side measurement includes the depth of the back piece, so the measurements we need are the total outside of the sofa. 

Again, check the depth of your sofa, as well as the height against our standard dimensions. 


A U-Shape Corner Sofa

1. Measure A to B

2. Measure A to C

3. Measure B to D

4. Check Depth and Height


For a U-Shape, you apply the same rules as the L-Shape, but you are measuring to add a piece on either side. Again, the lengths of the sides includes the depth of the back section, so the outer most dimensions. 
Check your depth and height to make sure they are correct. 

One thing to keep in mind with a U-Shape is we would suggest a back section of at least 305cm. Anything smaller and the central gap which is left becomes very small.
