This guide will help you measure up and work out what sizes of carpet or vinyl you need to order.
Firstly there are points to understand that will help make it easier:
1. In general you just need to measure the widest and longest point of the room. The carpet you are getting will be all one piece so it needs to cover all areas in the room.
2. Carpets are cut from mother rolls that are usually 4m wide (5m also available) and you can choose the length. Vinyls are 2m, 3m or 4m wide.

Below is an example:

The room on the right features a bay window, making the room slightly odd in shape – this usually doesn’t affect how you measure the room, as you measure the longest and widest bits (3.8m and 4.4m).

Once you know these measurements, you can then pick a carpet size that will fit. In this example, the 3.8m would become 4 metres as carpets are available in either 4 or 5 metre widths, and this measurement is the closest to one of those sizes. The second size – 4.4m – would become 4.5 metres because we sell carpets by the nearest quarter or a metre. You should round your measurements up to the next quarter metre as the norm. However, if this measurement is to .25, .50 or .75 of a metre, you should round up to the next quarter of a metre to allow for wastage.

In this example, the final carpet size required would be 4m x 4.5m.
