How to Measure Your Floor For Carpet Tile

Hi Everyone,

We’re really excited to be launching our new line of carpet tiles. Here are a few tips to help you determine how much carpet tile you will need:

For rectangular or square rooms, it is relatively straight forward to determine your square foot requirements:

  • Measure the width of your room
  • Measure the length of your room
  • Look up the number of carpet tile boxes that you require using the guide below

For rooms with inconsistent shapes, you can do one of the following:

For a more exact measurement:

  • Break the room up into separate areas that form consistent rectangles or squares.
  • Measure each sub-section separately
  • Look up the number of carpet tile boxes that you require for each sub section, using the guide below
  • Add the number of boxes required for each sub section and order this amount

For a less exact measurement (assuming the room is roughly square or rectangular)

  • Measure the width of your room at the widest point
  • Measure the length of your room at the longest point
  • Look up the number of carpet tile boxes that you require using the guide below

General Notes:

  • It is a good idea to measure the width and length of the room in at least two places, just in case the room is not square. Use the larger of the two measurements.
  • Be sure to allow an extra 2 inches or 5 cm on all sides for rough cut edges, etc.
