How to measure your stairs for carpet fitting

When ordering a new carpet for your stairs, the process of measuring is a little more involved than it is for a normal room, however it’s easy when you know how! To get started, you’ll need a couple of things :

– Pencil and Paper
– Tape Measure

Step One - Count your individual stairs and make a list

You’ll need to know the measurements of each individual step – odds are that some will be slightly different to each other – so by listing the measurements for each step you’ll be able to add them up.

Step Two - Measure the run, rise and width of each step

Measure each step individually, and add the dimensions on to your list


The part of your step that you stand on!


The vertical part of the step


For winding stairs, measure the widest width per step

Step Three - Add your measurements

Add all the run and rise measurements together. also include the landing within this measurement.

You should now have the overall length x width of the stairs and landing.

Step Four - Pick your floor and enter your measurements
