Hey Everyone,

I would like to replace my old Scholze for a new instrument. This time I would like to know, whether a 142cm baby grand piano could fit nicely to a 20m2 room (height: 2,85m), or even a bigger one? Won't they sound too harsh, too loud? The size of the 142cm fit much better, however, somehow the touch (action) and tone (especially in the bass region) of the 162cm piano was much better... Both piano are George Steck pianos.

Thank you for your opinion!

I did not mention, but of course the Scholze is an upright...

My room is only a little bigger, and I have a 186 cm grand plus a 123 cm upright in it. I have more trouble quieting the upright. I had to stuff pillows behind the soundboard to protect my hearing. For the grand, I did nothing. It's fine. I play with the piano lid fully up, no problem at all.

Thank you for your response!

How big is your room exactly (WxDxH)? Do you have neighbours next to your room's wall? (Is it a flat or a house?)

My room is 4.4m x 5m x 2.7m in a house. I was initially very worried about the 186 cm piano, but now I realize I could have accomodated a 212 cm piano if I really wanted to.

I am not exactly clear about the size of your room, (metrics) but I recently placed my seven-foot (approx 210 cm?) Mason-Hamlin BB in a small bedroom (about 12 feet by 11 feet with a small closet that I keep open to absorb some sound. Ceiling is 9 feet and room is carpeted. The sound is fine although I often play at half-stick and I am not a banger. I think a lot of it has to do with the piano itself and your playing style.
