Fast Estimation (single room only)
To get a quick estimate of the area to be carpeted in Square Metres, try using this simple formula.
As carpet is sold by the Lineal Metres (3.66m wide), it is advisable to add 10% to calculations made using square metres.
Length in Metres X Width in Metres
6.0m x 4.0m = 24m² + 10% (2.4m)
Total required = 26.4m² or (approx 7.20 Lineal Metres)
Fast Estimation (multiple rooms)
Square all areas off so that you have multiple rectangles to get m² of each area individually.
Length in Metres x Width in Metres
Bedroom A 4.0m x 3.0m = 12m²
Bedroom B 3.0m x 3.0m = 9m²
Passage X 3.0m x 1.0m = 3m²
Passage Y 1.0m x 2.0m = 2m²
Total = 26m² + 10% (2.6m)
Total required = 28.6m² or (approx 7.8 Lineal Metres)
