First, you need a measuring tape in order to determine the approximate quantity of carpet you need then multiply the length (feet) of the room by its width (feet) for the square footage. To obtain the square yardage, divide that figure by 9. Your retailer may figure the amount in square feet or square yards and you should  Add 10-15 percent to account for room irregularities and waste. It is best to have your retailer or installer make final measurements to ensure that you purchase the correct amount. As professionals, they know how to include hallways and closets, match patterns, plan seam placement, work with room irregularities, and account for rooms with widths greater than 12 feet. (Most carpet is produced in 12- foot width but some are 15-foot width.) Dealers may sell by the square foot or the square yard.
