“Will my floorboards take the weight of my piano upstairs?”
Question/ I am thinking of renting a piano and was pleased to find your website. Can you please advise me whether a piano would need to be situated on the ground floor of my house? I have limited space downstairs and would prefer to practice in an upstairs bedroom but I’m worried my floorboards will not take the weight. My house is new build.
Any guidance you can give me would be gratefully appreciated.
Kind regards, Sharon Morris
If you are worried about your floorboards taking the weight, then
the answer would be to go for a digital piano.
It is always best to have a piano on the ground floor rather than
upstairs because moving pianos upstairs can be quite costly.
If your piano absolutely must go upstairs then you need to find
the smallest piano available. Something around 108-110cm tall
is a lot easier to move upstairs.
We may have some small pianos available for rent at the moment.
If you give our shop a call on 020 8367 2080 someone should be
able to help you.
