It is important to do preliminary space planning that involves taking measurements of the length and width of the room and the dimensions of any recessed spaces, doorways, and windows in the room. This is done by creating a floor plan to determine how much space can be allocated for furniture and accessories. The pieces can be placed in a few different ways depending on the use and function of the room.
Once this has been determined, it will provide a greater visual of how the room will function with the selected furniture. It is absolutely necessary to know the exact, precise measurements of the space, as well as the ideal dimensions of potential furniture to avoid purchasing pieces that do not actually fit inside the room.
