What does "recommended minimum space" mean, and why is it so much larger than the furniture itself?
"Recommended minimum space" accounts for 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 sit at least three feet away from pool edges and have 2–3 feet of space on either side so guests have plenty of room to stand, sit, and walk around them.
- Rocking chairs and gliders need 2–3 feet of free space on all sides so they won't bump into anything and so family can easily move around them.
- At least three feet of clearance is needed on all sides of dining, counter, and bar tables so there's enough room to walk around them or pull out chairs.
