Understanding standard basic sizes of furniture can help with planning a room. Sofas can range from 78_inches to 108_inches. A standard sofa size is approximately 36" x 90". A standard loveseat is approximately 36" x 60". Upholstered chairs are usually around 36" x 36" give, or take. Barrel and swivel chairs can be found at 30" x 30" and up. Small wood frame chairs can be found as small as 24" x 24". The standard desk is 30" x 60".
Now it is time to play with placing furnishings in the floor plan. When the basic room plan is completed make a few copies and have fun designing the room for several scenarios as if playing with furniture in a dollhouse. Just as room was scaled to fit the floor plan the furniture must be placed in the room to scale as well.
