How do you measure for carpet installation?
The first step is to measure your room’s length and width, adding 2-3 three inches to each dimension to account for doorways and trimming. Measure additional sections, like the other part of an L-shaped room. Multiply the length times width to get the overall area of carpeting. When measuring for stairs, make sure to measure all the way around the nosing of the stairs to account for extra carpeting needed.
