Practical Uses in Everyday Life

To give you a better understanding of what 400 cm (or approximately 157.48 inches) looks like in tangible terms, here are 15 commonplace items and their measurements:

  1. The average sofa length is about 200 cm, which means two average sofas placed end to end are just about 400 cm.
  2. A typical dining table is roughly 100 to 120 cm in length, so approximately three to four tables in a row would match 400 cm.
  3. A standard door height is around 200 cm, so two standard doors stacked would equal about 400 cm.
  4. King-size mattresses are approximately 200 cm long, so two mattresses end-to-end are around 400 cm.
  5. The height of common refrigerators ranges from 170 to 190 cm. More than two refrigerator heights stacked would equal roughly 400 cm.
  6. Many home ceilings are about 240 cm high, so 400 cm is well under two times the height of typical residential ceilings.
  7. The average length of a compact car is about 450 cm, so 400 cm is just slightly under the length of a small car.
  8. A large flat-screen TV can be about 150 cm wide, so measuring diagonally, two TVs would approach 400 cm.
  9. The width of many bedroom windows is about 100 to 150 cm, so roughly three or more windows would span 400 cm.
  10. An adult bicycle is typically around 180 cm long, so about two and a bit bicycles can measure up to 400 cm.
  11. Generally, shower curtains are around 180 cm wide. More than two of these widths would measure about 400 cm.
  12. Yoga mats usually measure about 180 cm in length, so laying them more than two in a row would meet the 400 cm mark.
  13. Typically, office desks are around 150-180 cm wide; more than two desks would be about 400 cm in width.
  14. Ping pong tables have a length of about 274 cm, so about one and a half ping pong tables would reach close to 400 cm.
  15. The average bookshelf height spans around 180 cm, so stacking slightly more than two bookshelves would measure around 400 cm.
