How do I know if my room is 25sqm (270sqft) and below?

Get the Floor Area of the Room (Space) you want to design. If you're unsure with your Floor Area / Size of Room, you can send us a copy of your space's floor plan (Simple Plan Sketch) OR actual photos of your space in our Instagram or Facebook page ( @anaffordablespace). We can assist you in getting the preliminary Floor Area / Size of Room before your proceed with your Design Package order. This preliminay Floor Area / Size of Room can still be verified during Design Chat using the detailed Measuring Guide that we'll provide. Incase your space turns out to be bigger than 25sqm, you can add the Bigger Room Top-up later on. "sqm" stands for square meter. "sqft" stands for square foot.

How will I know the "Floor Area" of my room?

Measure the general length & width of the Room (Space) you want to design. To know the Floor Area, just multiply the length & width of your space like this: METERS: Floor Area (sqm) = Length (m) x Width (m) ____________ FEET: Floor Area (sqft) = Length (ft) x Width ft) Better to make a " Simple Plan Sketch" of your space already. We'll ask for this during our Design Chat. For easier computation, convert your Feet-Inches fraction to Feet in Decimal. "m" is meter, while"sqm" is square meter. "ft" is foot, while"sqft" is square foot.

What is a "Simple Plan Sketch"?

A Simple Plan Sketch is a simple floor plan of your enclosed space. It should give us an idea of your room's:

  • general shape
  • location of doors and windows
  • basic measurements like length, width, floor area and height.
It doesnt have to be perfectly drawn, but please make sure its readable. Incase you don't have this, don't worry! We can provide you with a detailed Measuring Guide to help you double check your room's dimension during our Design Chat.

Can I use my existing Furniture in the design?

Yes, we’ll be more than happy to include pieces you already own. During our Design Chat, we’ll ask you a series of questions about your room and you’ll be able to tell our Design Team if there are exisiting pieces you want us to include. With no additional cost, our design team can find stand-ins for a maximum of 2 of your existing piece(s) from our 3D catalog. These stand-ins are NOT the 3D models of your exact piece. These will be look-alike piece substitutes that’s a close match in color/size/shape. Incase you want us to 3D Model your exact furniture/decor piece, we'll soon release a Top-Up for it so you'll be able to see how your existing furniture will look and fit in your room alongside new furniture and decor.
