Are you moving into a new home and not sure if your piano will fit in your new house? Or do you have plans for purchasing a new piano after you move into your new home?

With either situation, you will have to take into consideration the size of the piano you are wanting to purchase and the spot in your home that you are wanting to put it in.

Read along for some helpful tips on how to figure out if your piano will fit into your new home.

Does Your Piano Measure Up?

Before conducting research on what piano you want to buy, you should grab a tape measure and determine the dimensions of the best spot to place a piano.

A good rule of thumb to follow is just because you feel like you could fit a piano at the maximum size doesn’t mean you necessarily should. Take a look at the layout of your room and decide what size wouldn’t just fit in the room best, but would look proportional to the rest of the room.

What if you already have a piano and you are wondering if it will fit into your new home?

Sometimes you can’t always plan to buy a house around something so minuscule, such as space for a piano. However, while house shopping it isn’t a bad idea to keep in mind room for a piano. Tell your realtor about the piano dimensions for a better idea of which homes would best suit your instrument.

Fitting a Grand or Upright Piano

Piano enthusiasts and professionals argue that grand pianos create the most rich sounds and are more showcase worthy than upright pianos.

if that’s the case, the caveat to a grand piano is that they take up a lot more space. They are also more difficult to move, considering the number of stairs, type of flooring, and landings you may have. You may also have to be more flexible with where you can place your grand piano.

An upright piano is ideal if you are limited in space or want to play anytime without having to disturb other tenants or neighbors. They can also compliment your home without having to compromise where you want to place the piano in the room.
