Scale is one of the most important factors when it comes to design. It can set the tone for the entire space. It can make a room feel full, empty, right and wrong. When you’re designing a space you need to keep everything to the scale of the room. If you just run out and start buying without knowing the right measurements you’ll be in for a big surprise when it comes to the install.
Without knowing measurements of furniture and accessories they potentially won’t fit and it will cause a headache or two. You want to know what will fit in your space before you head off hunting for it. Knowing the measurements of your space will also allow you to use it to its full potential as well as show you were you can take design risks with scale. So do your homework, know your space and pick pieces that will not only look great in your space, but will actually fit!
