Secrets to Becoming a Master Measurer
We’ve all purchased articles of clothing without trying them on. Sometimes we get lucky and they’re just right. But most of the time, they don’t look so great. Since you can’t exactly try a rug on for size, measuring your space before coming into the store or ordering online will help ensure you find the perfect fit.
How to Measure
When done right, measuring a room is a two-person job. To measure your room, stand at one end of the space with your tape measure. Then, have your measuring partner in crime walk away from you to the other end of the room, extending the tape. Lay the tape measure flat on the floor and note the measurement. Repeat for the other side of the room. It pays to do this twice to make sure you’ve measured accurately.
