Many carpet retailers will try to sell you more carpet than you actually need. This is a very common carpet scam. Measuring for carpet yourself is a smart way to save money on your new carpet purchase.
However, it is only ONE of dozens of smart ways that you can save money on new carpet that you need to know about.
You usually have to buy carpet in widths of 12 feet. If you have a room that is 10 feet by 10 feet you will have to buy a rug that is 12 feet by 10 feet.
If you have a room wider than 12 feet you will need to have a seam. For example: A room 15 feet wide by 16 feet long will require a 3 foot by 16 foot seam along one side of the room. This means you must add enough extra carpet to do the seams. Usually 5 to 10% more depending on the size of your rooms and the number of seams used to fill the space.
