Measuring Living Rooms is as simple as measuring along the skirting board, making sure that you also carefully measure any extended windowsill, doorframes, and out-coming fireplaces so that you have got every inch of the flooring covered and measured.

Measuring Halls and Corridors is a lot easier, as all you will have to do is measure the room as a square room, measuring along the side simply by the widths of the room. It is also important to make sure that you measure the carpet space in front of any door and staircase –and always measure one step over the staircase.

How to measure for carpets for stairs

Before measuring stairs always make sure you have a note of how many steps you have. Measuring Stairs is simple, just measuring the height by the width of the step and multiplying by how many steps.

Alternatively, if you believe some of your stairs are different in size make sure to measure them individually to make sure you have a more accurate measurement.

A notable tip for carpet measurements are to always add 5cm to the measurements, as well as rounding up, as it will always be better to have too much than not enough!
