Standard Furniture Size

Furniture manufacturers basically follow a standard measure for their pieces. While these may be tweaked a little depending on their specific designs or collection, they use these standard sizes as their guides to give them an idea of how each piece of furniture is sized.

These standard measurements make the furniture pieces fit in designated areas in the home; whether they’re for the living room, bedroom, bathroom or kitchen.
