    How to Measure carpet

    Flooring Specialists

    I have measured the separate areas for my hallway, stairs and landing carpet. But not sure how to combine the three to get the total length of carpet I require! Can someone explain how to go about measuring carpet?

    The best way to measure for flooring is measure the length and then the width to the widest points and then just times them together to get the total square meter of the room size"

    "Hi Kelly. Your need a peace of paper. A4 size. Draw a square the size of paper. Or just under so it fits on paper. Then you have to measure your areas and then convert them to paper. Writing down width And length sizes. Carpet comes in 4 or 5 metre widths hope this helps. Thanks Jason"
