Looking to replace your carpet?


  1. Measure your room width and length ways at its widest point – making sure you remember any bay windows or door entrances.
  2. Add 10cm on all widths and lengths to allow room for cutting throughout your installation.
  3. Check the width of the room is less than the width of the carpet you are buying.

Hall/Stairs and Landing

  1. Start by measuring the length and width of the hallway.
  2. When measuring the stairs, it is easiest to measure the first step, taking into account the tread and the riser. Multiply this by the amount of steps.
  3. Then measure your landing.
