Carpet Measuring Guide

How to measure for competetive priced Cormar Carpets

When you look at a room make sure you measure at the widest points. The carpet will need to go under the door to fit on a door bar. Measure both maximum length and maximum width. Once you have done this add 10cm to both the length and width so the fitter will have an allowance to trim off and fit over the gripper.

Measure all the rooms to be fitted. A carpet that is on a landing needs to run over the top step. The carpet has a directional pile fall and this should, for best results run over the stairs going down. When calculating the cutting plan make sure you do this from one width either 4 metre wide or 5 metre wide because carpet in each width are made at different times they will not die batch.

When you order from us we will make sure the cuts die batch and not provide cuts from different batches like many of our competitors do.

We are happy to supply your carpet, cut to easy to handle room lengths (by 4m or 5m widths). You will need to include these sizes in the Additional Information area at checkout.

Remember when you measure to count how many door bars you need. Double bars go carpet to carpet and singles are to a vinyl. Z bars are used for carpet to a ceramic tile. We only supply accessories when ordered with carpet.

The gripper we supply is a dual pin which can be used with both concrete and wood floors. Gripper is supplied in lengths of 1.52 metres in boxes of 100 (152 metres) or bundles of 25 (38 metres). If you have a fitter, he may want to supply this as they all have their own way of working. Measure around the edges to work out how much gripper you require. Remember stairs have gripper on the flat and on the riser. We supply by boxes and half bundles of 500m or 250m.
