We almost decided to buy this townhome but I am giving second thoughts
because the Master bedroom is very small. We have a King Bed, 2 night
stands and a small dresser in our rental apartment. I am wondering how
I can fit all of this in a 14 X 12 room.
In 14 X 12 room there is a window on one of the shorter walls and
there are bath & Walk in closet on the opp side wall. I cannot imagine
how i can fit in all the furniture and still leave room for traffic
Yeah. There's this thing called a tape measure. You use it to measure
things. Get some blue painter's tape and lay out the shapes of all your
stuff by putting the blue tape on the floor. Then, use your imagination, if
Unfortunately, for many people, merely *thinking* seems impossible without
the web. It's a crutch for those who never heard the word "resourceful", and
I think it's pathetic.
One of my favorite posts, from a food newsgroup:
Subject line: Lasagna
Message: Can I make it at home? How?
That's it. No clue as to whether it wanted to make the lasagna noodles, or
the fully assembled dish. No clue as to whether it had ever looked at the
back of a box of lasagna at the store, all of which have recipes.
Hummmm unfortunately....wait before I continue please holster your guns.
This problem is prevalent in the states. I constantly run into commercial
sites that are trying to peddle their wares. Many have what I am actually
looking for but they don't even give a clue on their currency, never mind
where they actually are. A Canadian site will clearly state prices in CDN,
the UK in Pounds, Europe in Euros etc....The web is world wide, it is not
bordered by the Atlantic, Pacific, Canada and Mexico!
Now stop asking questions about your pool filters and BBQs, for heaven's
sake I'm still trying to shovel my way out of the front door!!!
Well, after all the rigamarole of painter's tape and outline figures,
he's still got to use his imagination? What good is your fancy method
It would of course be wonderful if in life we could draw a few figures
and decide everything. I imagine however, that in the 3D world of the
OP, a few lines on the floor wouldn't be any indication of how much
shoulder room, walking room, etc. would be needed and how airy the
room would be with that furniture. So it would be appropriate to ask
other people for their experience. I mean, if you've heard of
painter's tape, half the rest of the world probably has too.
Personally, if I liked the house otherwise and the king bed turned out
to the too big, I'd get another bed.

A friend with a townhouse, 2 baths upstairs, a powder room on the
first floor and another one in the basement, had a wife and two
daughters, about 3 and 4 years old.
They decided to buy a bigger house, and the one they picked had 3
