Pianos are divided into upright pianos and grand pianos, and the size of the piano has different specifications according to demand.
The upright piano’s midrange and strings are placed vertically, so the higher the height, the louder the sound.
For optimal sound, the size of the room in which the piano is placed is also a key factor.
The size of the upright pianos is about 150cm long and 60cm wide. The height is the core standard of upright piano models.

Upright pianos up to 116cm in size are suitable for smaller rooms of about 10 square meters.
118cm, 121cm size upright pianos can be placed in a room of about 20 square meters
125cm, 128cm size piano for rooms larger than 25㎡
The 131cm size piano can already meet the needs of small concerts, and the size is too large for the family.
The room’s openness, the resonance of the floor material, and the sound absorption effect of the decoration in the room will all affect the piano sound, so when the sound of the piano in the room is not ideal, you can use these arrangements to make clever adjustments.
The soundboard and strings of the grand piano are placed horizontally, so the action of the grand piano is based on gravity. Compared to the upright piano, the movement of the grand piano is more sensitive.
The size and width of a grand piano are about 150cm, and the height is generally about 100cm. The length (also called depth) is the key factor for the sound effect of a grand piano. Generally, the size of a grand piano is between 150cm and 275cm.
