Make Sure You Measure Correctly For Your New Carpets

When you are looking to buy any new carpets, you are going to want to make the purchase as cost effective as possible. For this reason it is important that you make sure that you measure the dimensions needed carefully. Without doing this you could either be left with a large amount of waste at the end or you may find that you don’t have enough to fill the room. Obviously for the final measurement it is best to leave that to the professionals. However, to get a good initial indication of the amount you are going to need we have provided a brief outline of the best way of doing so.

When you are measuring out the dimensions of the room, always make sure to do it at the widest points. You need to get a measure of the biggest width and the biggest length in order to calculate the area in square metres. This is important because if you don’t take measurements from the widest points then you are more than likely going to end up with too little material. When you have obtained the correct figures all you need to do to work out the area is multiply the two. If your length is 5m and your width is 4m then the estimated size of the required surface will be 20 square metres. You can then use this figure to easily work out a rough cost when you go looking for your new flooring.

Once you have measured the overall dimensions, you need to also take measurement of any indentations within the room. You are not going to need carpet for the area your fire takes up or if you have a portion of wall jutting out. When you have got all measurements, make a note of them and then you are all set to go out and get your new carpets.
