How to measure your carpet

Step 1

Quick Estimate

To get a quick estimate of the area to be carpeted in Square Metres, try using this simple formula.

Carpet is sold by the Lineal Metre, but we can still calculate in square metres.

Length x Width of the room in Metres

5m x 4m = 20 Sq m (+ 12% wastage)

Total 22.4 Square Metres

Estimate if more than 4 walls

If the room as more than 4 walls, divide room into sections and add results together.

Length x Width plus Length x Width

5m x 4m = 20 Sq m

3m x 1.5m = 4.5 Sq m

Subtotal = 24.5 Sq m  (+ 5%)

Total = 26 Square Metres

Step 2

Add all rooms together to calculate the total area to be carpeted.
