How Much Carpet Will You Need for Your Stairs

In terms of comfortable flooring, it’s hard to beat a nice, fluffy carpet. Since installing carpeting can be difficult for the average homeowner, it’s best to hire professional—particularly when it comes to stairs.  

This video offers some suggestions on how to properly measure carpeting for stairs. After measuring the area to be carpeted, it’s important to add an inch to each side of the carpet to allow for simple installation. When it comes to runners, you need to take off three inches on each side.

For help determining precisely how much carpet you need, rely on the carpet experts at Bay Carpet of NYC. We offer all major carpet brands at affordable prices. Visit our website or call (718) 366-5001 to learn more about what we have in stock.
