Face weight is the number of ounces of fiber per square yard. The amount of fiber is directly related to the carpet performance and durability.
1) Layout the Area to be Carpeted
To begin, do a layout measurement of each room or area to be carpeted. Simply sketch out the shape of the room, indicating doors and other recesses, and note adjoining floor surfaces (this helps determine the carpet needed in doorways).
2) Measure Length and Width
Measure the length and the width of the room and record these on your sketch. Use the calculator below by entering your length and width to obtain an estimate of your room. Record the square feet and square yards on your sketch. Be sure to list both measurements, since the total square footage of the room size may not correspond to the square feet (or yards) of carpet that will be used.
