Carpet Cost Calculator

Most carpet and flooring today is sold by the square foot. In order to calculate the amount of carpet you need for a room you first need to calculate the total square feet of the area you want to cover. We also recommend you add about 10% extra to your square footage to make sure you have enough material and don't run short while installing the carpeting.

Our carpet calculator below is very basic to give you a rough idea of the total square feet needed of carpeting and a estimated cost for material only. The calculator does not take into account pattern repeats or special widths, such as carpeting that is sold in 12 foot width only, or wider. But this will give you some idea of the costs and material needed for your flooring project.

If you need help see the WFCA carpet stores locator for professional carpet retail stores in your area that can help you and give you a free carpet estimate.

You must consider the width of the carpet (usually 12 ft). Carpet should alwaYS BE LAID IN THE SAME DIRECTION TO AVOID CHANGES IN APPEARANCE OD THE NAP
