You know the old saying, "measure twice, cut once?"  Taking that extra step to make sure your calculations are just right can mean the difference between excitement and disappointment on the day of new furniture delivery.

Floor plans to scale are a great "first measure".  But the best way to make sure you've checked twice is achieved with the use of a little painter's tape!  Taking the dimensions of a piece of furniture and "taping" them out on the floor where you're thinking about placing your new furniture is a great way to bring your floor plan to life!  This is also a great way for you to actually "see" the space you will need to accommodate your new furniture pieces.  Painter's tape is designed to be inexpensive and easy to remove without harming carpet, tile or hardwood. 

In addition, remember to check the size and clearance of doorways and turns - especially on staircases, hallways and landings.   Doing this will ensure you can access the room and place your new furniture exactly where you want it.

So the next time you're not quite sure how a new piece will look - or how much space you will need - take a moment and TAPE IT OUT!!
