Think about your needs early on to help you in your search for new living room furniture. You'll want your new piece of furniture to be in proportion to the rest of the room. A great way to check is to map out the space using newspaper, or mark out your floor with masking tape. Remember to leave yourself enough space to walk around the room comfortably, not overcrowding the space so you can retain a spacious look and feel.
If you're buying a sofa bed or recliner, check that there's sufficient room for it when it's both closed and extended (also any drawers) as these measurements will of course differ dramatically.
Of course you also need to be sure the furniture will fit through the door when we deliver it (see the section on Access). If you think it's going to be tricky, then take a look at furniture that's partial or full assembly.
