In this way, how do you tell if a couch will fit through your door?
Getting your sofa through the front door Measure the width of your door frame (A) (FIG. 2). If this measurement is greater than your sofa's packaged height (H) then your sofa will fit through just fine.
One may also ask, do most couches fit through doors? If your couch is tall, wide and bulky and the doorway narrow or small, it often looks like the couch will not fit through the door without damaging the furniture or the walls. Tilting most couches at an angle helps you guide them smoothly through small doorways without tearing the upholstery.
Also, how do you fit a sofa through a small door?
Here are our top tips for moving a sofa through a doorway:
- If you're moving the sofa on a carpeted surface, place cardboard or a furniture-moving blanket on the floor to make sliding easier.
- Place an oversized furniture slider, or multiple small sliders on each corner, on the floor and rest your sofa on top.
What if my sofa doesn't fit through the door?
Place your sofa on its end, vertically, with the seat first, and then try to twist the piece slowly into the doorway. This trick usually works like a charm! Step 2: Just squeeze it. Sofas are soft furniture pieces so they can often be squeezed through smaller doors and narrower corridors.
