How to measure your room


You’ll need a tape measure, pen or pencil and some paper


Firstly, draw a simple plan of the room to put your sizes on. When measuring your room, you should always ensure that you keep the flooring running in the same direction to maintain texture, pattern and colour consistency. If you change the direction then the pattern, texture and the pile of the carpet will reflect the light differently.

When measuring a room, simply measure from the furthest skirting board at the longest and widest points of the room remembering to measure into the doorway as the room will be slightly wider there. Also, take care to measure into any bay windows and doorframes when measuring the length, as carpet should end under a door.

Always add 5cm (2″) minimum to both the length and width of the carpet measurements. The majority of carpets are 4 metres or 5 metres in width (4mx 5m), if your room is slightly over this width don’t worry we can join the carpet professionally with heat seam tape.
