For your Information
The width of an upright piano is about 60" and the depth is between 24" and 28". The floor space allowed should be about 5' wide by 5' deep to include room for the bench and the player. How tall a piano is has a definite impact on the sound. There are four terms used to describe the general height of an upright piano: Spinet (36"-39"), Console (40"-44"), Studio (45"-49"), and Full Upright (50" and above). There is a wide variety within these categories, and today they are less often used, rather, the actual height of the piano will be used to define the instrument.
