How to get new big couch through small doorways

Posted by 3kidsonedogandus (My Page) on

I am about to purchase a couch to go in my family room at the BACK of the house. whose measurements are Overall: W86" D40" H36".

My FRONT door is W33" H83". All other interior doors are no wider than 32" and no taller than 79". Unless I am missing something, I don't think getting it through the front door is going to be possible.

If the couch were to come in through the back, the only access into the family room is a sliding glass patio door. Again, the height of that door is 79" and the width, if I remove the door that can slide, is 33".

My ultimate question now is - Is it possible to remove the center "pole" in between the stationary door and the sliding door. If that is possible, then that would be ideal because then I can actually purchase the couch that I desperately want.

If there is anyone out there with experience moving larger furniture through small openings and especially through sliding glass door openings, I'd love to hear from you!

The feet on most large furniture can be removed for just this reason. If you have feet that are 3 inches or more tall and removeable, you may be just fine.

Are the back cushions removeable?

What type of pole is between the glass panels. I have never heard of this. Most glass panels are easy to remove. Often times you have to unscrew a strip across the top of the panels and then lift the glass up and out.

You might call a glass company if you are uncertain yourself.

Sounds like you should select a different couch!
