This tool will calculate the amount of carpet you need based on your room’s dimensions.

## Carpet Calculator

This calculator helps you estimate the total cost of carpeting a floor area based on the length and width of the area, and the price per square meter of the carpet.

### How to Use

1. Enter the length of the area in meters.

2. Enter the width of the area in meters.

3. Enter the price per square meter of the carpet.

4. Click the “Calculate” button to see the total cost in the “Result” field.

### How it Calculates

The calculator multiplies the length and width to determine the area in square meters, and then multiplies this area by the price per square meter of the carpet to give you the total cost.

### Limitations

This calculator assumes a perfectly rectangular area and does not account for any potential waste or additional costs such as installation fees or additional carpet for patterns. Always measure your area carefully and consult with a professional if needed.
