HOW TO MEASURE FOR CARPET IN 2 SIMPLE STEPS

Step1:

Draw a simple diagram of your home. Write down the measurements on your diagram. You need to round up each measurement to the nearest 1/2" foot mark. If your room is 11 feet 3 inches, round it up 11 feet 9 inches. This little bit of extra carpet will help make sure you have enough. There is only one thing worse than not having enough carpet to finish the job, and that is being charged for more material than you acctually need.

Step2:

Make a list of your measurements and multiply the width by the length of each room.

example:

                         room size                     carpet size

Master bedroom: 11' W x 16'L                   12'W x 16'6"L

Kid's bedroom:    9' W x 15'L                    12'W x 15'6"L

Livingroom:        11' W x 20' L                  12'W x 20'6"L

Total carpet size you need is 12' x 52'6" = 630 sq.ft. 

 

Measuring Carpet for Stair steps:

Measuring for stair can be very tricky. Some strair are wrapped over one or both sides, some have to be upholstered with may require additional material, some are pie shaped and are very difficult to measure, some have landings that must be considered.

The easy way you can do is count how mandy steps, how wide for each step, wide and length for landing eara, bring over the measurment, the professional will figured out for you.

 

Important to Remember

*Carpet usually comes 12 feet wide. Other widths that may be available are 13.5 and 15 feet.

*There will be some material waste if your room is less than 12 feet wide.

*All carpet in connecting rooms must run in the same direction.
