Measurements That Matter

Do you think that picture is to high above the sofa?

There’s just not enough room to walk around in this area!

I’m thinking that light fixture is too small above that table!

Are these some of the problems you question?

Here are some examples of measurements to keep in mind for your home.

  * Traffic Flow: 24″ to 36″ wide for easy flow around furniture

*Conversation Grouping: Seats within 8 to 10′ of one another for easy conversation

*Art Width: Fill 2/3rds the width of the space over a piece of furniture with your art grouping.
Here are some ideas for art groupings.

* Art Placement: Hang artwork 54-60″ from the floor to the center of the art grouping.

*Chandelier Size: On average 1/2 the width of the table plus 4-6 inches

Next time you do a little re-decorating in your home keep these helpful measurements in mind.
