How to measure your room for your new carpet

Welcome to our simple guide to measuring your home for your new carpet. Follow along with our quick and easy guides and you will be measuring up like a pro in no time.

TIP! Change the lay direction of your carpet for less wastage.

1. Measure up

Rectangular rooms can be easily calculated by measuring the length and width of the room. If your room is irregularly shaped you will need to divide your room into seperate smaller areas.

2. Use our online calculator

Enter your length and width measurements into our Room Calculator below.

3. Change lay direction

Changing the lay direction of your carpet may result in less joins per room and less wastage.

Linear meter calculations are for a single room only. Please return to this page to add additional rooms. Joins displayed for planning purposes.
