I am an Interior Designer, helping clients all across the globe build homes that they love from their beautiful kitchens to a simple accent wall to make their home a place they always want to be!
Whether you are here on the blog for a DIY hack or to check out my latest project, you're in the right place. Take a look around & don't be shy.
Did you know we offer e-Design services to all clients in the United States? It’s such a versatile and amazing service, but there are some limitations! For example…. Most clients do not take field measurements on a regular basis, which is the most crucial necessity in order to actually create a design plan. Lucky for us… We’ve got your covered with this guide on how to accurately measure your space for your design needs!
STEP 1: SKETCH THE ROOM
Roughly sketch your room noting where the windows, doors, and fixed furniture pieces are located. This does not need to be pretty or to scale, the measurements just need to be accurate. We recommend measuring in inches only!
STEP 2: GET YOUR TAPE MEASURE
The longer the tape measure, the better. Ideally, 25′ is the minimum yours should go so you can measure a whole room easily. You could also invest in a laser tape measure for larger projects and hard to reach areas.
STEP 3: WALLS, WINDOWS, & DOORS
First, measure the general length and width of the room with the walls. Then measure doors, windows, and anything built-in. These dimensions should include their distance from the floor and ceiling. Don’t forget to measure the casing trim!
STEP 4: DETAILS
Measure and note locations of, and distance between, outlets, light switches, thermostats, air vents/returns, baseboards, crown molding, light fixtures, etc.
We hope this guide helps you measure your space for any projects you have coming up. For those that are more hands on and need more detail, check out this short video by our friends at Clairrow on how to measure your space!
