measuring your room

"Prior to placing your order with any of our preferred retailers , it is important that you consider where the items will be placed, and any potential delivery obstacles."

measuring your room

Before purchasing an exclusive Abbyson Living collection, be sure to consider windows, shutters, closets, heating vents, and electrical outlets in the room. Be sure to include all items you plan to purchase, and include smaller items such as accent tables, benches, and ottomans as they may have a space impact in any room.

It is important that your furniture be able to be delivered through all entry ways, elevators and up or down any stairways. Measure the height and width of your entry ways, including staircases, hallways, elevator doors and interiors. Make note of any fixtures, decorative moldings and interior walls, ceiling heights, stairwells, and banisters that may be obstacles once items are inside. Consider the furniture to be delivered and determine if it can go straight through entry ways or if it will have to go in at an angle or on end.

Measuring Your Electronics and Components

If you are purchasing an exclusive Abbyson Living entertainment console, be sure to measure your television and other components that you would like to place inside of the console. You should measure your television, or the television you intend to purchase, before you purchase the furniture you plan to house it in or on and have the outside dimensions available in width, depth, and height.
