Calculate Square Footage For Flooring Area

In a perfect world, you would measure the dimensions of your room and buy carpet matching those dimensions. Unfortunately, the carpet world isn’t perfect. Carpet is produced in large rolls that come in fixed widths. Possibilities for roll widths are 12 feet, 15 feet, and 13 feet 6 inches, in order of availability. Unlike the width, the length can be any number; carpet is rolled out and cut at the desired length.
