Helping you estimate how much carpet you need
Here is a quick guide to help you with initial estimates. Your local retailer or qualified carpet installer will usually want to provide an exact measure before placing your order.
Measure length (1) x width (2)
Measure the maximum width and length at the room's widest points.
This is important so the correct number of repeats or length can be calculated.
Measure any indentations (3 and 4)
If the room is not a regular shape, make sure to measure any indentations too, e.g. built-in robes etc. This is important so that all of the carpet you buy can be utilised effectively, helping you minimise cost and waste.
Measure to the 'back' of the door frame (5)
Remember to allow enough carpet to be fitted under the door threshold!
