**NOTE** if your room is less than 12 ft wide - please use the carpet calculator for smaller rooms on this page.
If you have a tape measure, ruler or yardstick, measure the length and width of the room in feet. (Remember, a yard is three feet.) Just type in the length and width and press the Calculate button to determine your quantity.
Note: This carpet calculator takes into consideration that rooms are more or less than 12 foot in length and width. (the standard roll size) so it adds ten percent to your totals which will help to account for closet measurements and for short irregularities. You can expect there will be some waste and allowance required for cutting and seaming etc.
If you have chosen to purchase a patterned carpet there will be a 'repeat pattern' allowance that your carpet dealer can help you with. Plus carpet has a specific 'nap' meaning it must be laid the same way as reversing of the carpet will show quite readily.
As smart as this calculator is, it's not as smart as our Carpet Guy.
This calculation is only a very loose estimate - for example if your room is 10 x 10 (which is equal to 100 sqft). You will actually have to purchase a 10 x 12 piece of carpet because the rolls of carpet usually come in 12 feet so you will be purchasing 120 sqft PLUS enough to fit and kick, and closets, and doorways.

This carpet calculator rounds your estimate up only to the nearest whole number but please have a free in-home estimate ON US to determine the exact amount of carpet you do need before you purchase.
Our service includes a free measurement and estimate (free means - NO upfront charge that's only refunded if you buy - it means 100% free! no matter who you buy from)
