Room Yardage Table

Using the Room Yardage Table

 

To make calculating your yardage easier I have provided a room yardage table. Find the corresponding room width and length (in feet), and follow the proper column and rows till you line up your room measurements and discover the square yardage. Always round-up your room measurements to the nearest foot. Rooms must be considered at least 12 feet wide or you will not have enough material to complete the installation. This chart is only for approximation so you can get a basic idea of how much carpet you are going to need. Do one room at a time, showing the square footage and the square yardage for each room. Then you can add all the totals together.

How to Measure Your Stairs

 

Measuring for stairs can be a little bit tricky, but as long as your staircases are not unusual they shouldn’t be too tough to estimate. To make it easy I have created a handy chart to help you figure a basic estimate of how much carpet you need to carpet your stairs.  

 

1. What is your stair step and riser measurement?

Most step and risers will measure about 18 inches total. In diagram #1 below, it shows you where and how to measure the step and riser. You need to calculate these measurements in inches.  

 

2. Measure the width. How wide are your stairs?

There are several types of stairs. Most stairs are about 3 feet wide. Some are much wider. Not all stairs are the same. Some stairs are open on one or both sides and you will need to measure the widest points. Diagram #2 below shows how to properly measure the width of boxed stairs. The yardage chart is for estimating only.

 

 

 

Most staircases have about 12-14 steps. Some are split into two 6 or 7-step flights with a landing at the midpoint. The Stair Yardage Chart will reveal how many yards you typically need for a standard 12-14 step staircase. If you have more or less steps than 14, you will have to take that into consideration, and it will not include any carpet you may need for landing areas unless you include them in your stair measurements. 

 

Now that you have measured and have the answers to the two questions about your stairs, go to the next page and calculate how much carpet you will need and input your findings into the stair yardage chart.
