When you are thinking about having something ‘made to measure’, it is worth considering a few things.
Measure the area where you plan to put your item. Then, to help you visualize how much floor space it will take up, use masking tape or old newspaper; this is a great exercise to do when thinking about dining tables or beds. Remember to allow for any protruding features in the room like skirting boards, window frames or radiators.
We first need some basic measurements like height, width and depth and then for items such as cabinets, sideboards and storage units, you should decide if you would like doors, drawers and shelves. Take a look at our website for some inspiration and ideas. You may like to send us simple sketches and drawings but it is not essential.
One last thing to consider is access in your home. It would be helpful to measure the internal opening of doors and think about space needed for any manoeuvring and turning. Don’t worry- we can help with this, since the furniture we make can be made to fit.
