Will the Sofa Fit There?

iStock_000014377944_ExtraSmallPurchasing new furniture for a room can be a daunting experience for some people.  If you are not sure if the size and scale of an item are right for your room, try using some blue painter’s tape, which can be purchased at any hardware store.  (This type of tape has a special adhesive, which is “low tack” so that it won’t harm the surface on which it is applied.)  Place this tape on the area where you are planning to place the new piece of furniture.  Remember to tape the height and width on the wall as well as the depth onto the floor.  Then live with this configuration for a few days.  As you pass through the room on many different occasions, you will get a feel for the scale of the intended object.
