This is a flat surface area coverage calculator to find out how much carpet would be left over and minimally how many rolls it would take to lay out the space required.
It takes into account the number of strips
Assumtion: carpet is sold by the Sq. Yard.
single corner carpet should be taken care of separately than roll carpet.
In fact, this doesn't even have to be feet. you can use any length-type measurement of your choice. some of the output will be in yards though, which is 3× the unit size regardless (holdover from when it was feet only).
This calculator can also be used for any kind of 2-D, flat, surface area coverage where units/sheets/rolls of a given material, such as:
- sheets of plywood for a wall or floor or ceiling or whatever (approximate)
- fabric for a quilt
- rolls of carpet for a floor (12', 15', 24'×24' from one manufacturer)
- gypsum board or sheet rock coverage for wall or ceiling (approximate)
- pavers coverage for walkway
- tile coverage for bathroom wall or floor
- linoleum/whatever squares coverage of kitchen floor or bathroom (buy extra!)
- plank coverage for wood floors (buy extra!)
... are required to cover an area. see the glossary for the definitions of the terms I defined for this calculator such as "strips".
