A step-by-step guide to taking & submitting measurements


Having the right measurements is crucial in helping us create a space that is perfectly laid out with a functioning traffic flow. 

Tools Needed:

  • Paper (graph paper works best)
  • Pencil or pen
  • Tape measure

Follow the steps below to provide the needed measurements: 


  • Draw an outline of your space indicating where the doors, windows, and other structures (e.g. fireplace, built-ins, columns, or furniture that cannot be moved) are located.
  • Measure the overall width and length of the space.
  • Measure each section of the wall to the nearest structure (window, door, etc.) or if there are no structures on that wall, measure to the end of the wall.


  • MOULDING - when measuring up to a structure with molding, measure up to the molding and then to the other side of the molding so you have a dimension from outside molding to outside molding.
  • DOORS - note the direction of the door swing.  Do they open out or into the room? Do they open to the right or left? 


  • Please note any other features of the room that we should know about (e.g. a chandelier or ceiling fan that we need to center layout around, etc.). 
  • Are there columns in the room? 

Note any additional features on the drawing

Submitting your measurements is simple and should just take a few minutes.  Once you’ve uploaded all of your photos to your personal Dropbox folder, we’ll be able to access them.

  1. Take a photo of your measurements so you can upload them to your personal Dropbox folder.
  2. Check the Welcome email that you received to find the link to your personal Dropbox folder.
  3. Click on the link to take you directly to the folder.
