How to take measurements

The final measuring will be done by one of our expert employee, but following these instructions will help us immensely with the creation process.

  • Make a sketch plan of the walls of the room
  • Measure each interior wall
  • Specify the height of the walls
  • Indicate all openings , including frames
  • Specify the height of the opening from the ground

Also identify the characteristics of the room, for example, half-walls, false ceilings, beams, etc.
