Let’s face it, there aren’t many of us who don’t get at least a little confused when it comes converting cm to inches, perhaps when measuring a new piece of furniture or while making clothes and other crafts.
But with our handy inches to cm converter, you’ll never be puzzled again.
If you’ve been handed an instruction manual with measurements in inches, it’s totally understandable if you’re left feeling slightly bewildered. The majority of countries, including the UK, use the Metric system, which measures units in metres, rather than in inches.
However in some other countries, particularly in the United States, people will generally quantify things using inches, feet, and pounds. So if you’re looking to bridge the gap between the two for whatever reason, our inches to cm converter will be able to help you out in an instant.
