What does "recommended minimum space" mean, and why is it so much larger than the furniture itself?
"Recommended minimum space" refers to furniture dimensions and the extra room needed to use it. For example:
- A porch or daybed swing requires 3–4 feet of distance to both the front and back and 12–14 inches of clearance on either side to ensure it won't bump into walls or other furniture.
- Chaise lounges should have 2–3 feet of space on either side so guests have room to stand, sit, and walk around them. For safety, we recommend a three-foot clearance between pool edges and your chaises.
- Rocking chairs and gliders need 2–3 feet of free space on all sides to avoid bumping into walls and allow easy movement.
- Make sure there are at least three feet of space around your dining, counter, and bar tables to ensure ample room for pulling out chairs and moving freely around your furniture.
