We offer a free measuring service. We also offer a fitting service. But, if you are in a hurry and need to take your carpet or flooring away today, please use our guide below to help you.

A Room

Rectangular rooms are easy. Simply measure the width and length of the room, always remembering to measure into doorways, alcoves and recesses.

Sketch out a plan like the one on the diagram and simply fill in the dimensions.

The Stairs

There is no need to measure the length of the stairs, simply follow the method below for a simple staircase.

  • Count the number of stairs
  • Measure the tread and the riser (marked A on the diagram)
  • Measure the stair width (normally between 76cm and 93cm)


Remember to measure over the top step and into doorways and recesses. Mark the position of your stairs with an X as shown in the example.


The same as a standard room or landing only this time mark the stairs with an X and the front door with a D as shown in the example.
