Measuring Your Room For Carpet Installation

The basic formula for area is length times width (A = L x W).

 If a room is rectangular or a square, take a measurement of the length and width, round up to the nearest foot, and multiply.  This will give you an approximate measurement of the area in square feet.  If the room is not a square or a rectangle then measure the largest dimensions in both directions, round up to the nearest foot, and multiply together.

Add an Extra 10%

Once you have calculated your approximate square footage, multiply your figure by 10% (approximate sq/ft x 1.10).  Adding 10% to your square footage will help account for the door jams and waste when matching patterns or the width of the carpet roll.
