How to Measure a Room

Measuring can be intimidating but with my help we can make it less overwhelming and have you one step closer to a new design!

Lets Begin!!

Step 1: Sketch the outline of your space. Add in the windows and doors.


Look at your space, look at how the wall goes straight and then turns into the hallway.


I want you to draw the space out; notice if there is a fireplace, a beam or anything that is part of your floor plan. It is important to have all parts in the sketch!

Step 2: Measure out the space! Start with doing the overall room measurements and ceiling height.



Step 3: Measure where the doors or openings are in your space.


Example:



Tip: For the door, don't worry about the trim



Step 4: Measure where the windows are in your space


Example:


Repeat this step for your second window as well (if applicable). If having the measurements inside your drawing is too crowded, put them on the outside of your wall.


I hope this helped! Measuring can be difficult so I want to make sure you have the right tools while enjoying the process!



While this is a general guide, a room can be very complicated so please don’t hesitate to email me with any questions.
