Metric Data 08 – Standard Furniture Sizes

Living Room, Dining Room, Bedroom


In metric data 08 we will be looking at standard furniture sizes. To make it more useful, we have put together a reference PDF with all of the sizes that you can download for free. On top of that you can get all of the CAD drawings that are featured in this post from our shop for a small fee.


In this post we explore standard furniture sizes for bedrooms, dining rooms and living rooms. Examples being sofas, tables, dining tables, beds, storage and so on.


In the next post we will look at other areas of a residential building and the standard sizes associated with the remaining rooms.


The standard furniture sizes below are suggestions, and of course, furniture comes in many different sizes – but this is a good starting point and guide. It is especially useful if you have the cad drawings to drag and drop directly into your floor plans.

To complement the PDF download you can purchase the CAD files for your own use, of all the dimensioned drawings. Easy to drop into your drawings or use a reference in your own CAD templates. Purchase the CAD files now!
