Carpet Measuring SF verses SY Explained 

There are two ways to figure your carpet material needs, by the Square Foot or by the Square Yard. Either way is acceptable and the end result is the same. For example: A room measuring 10' long by 12' wide equals 120 square feet (SF). This is calculated by multiplying the with and length. (10 x 12 = 120)


You can change from square feet to square yards by dividing the square feet by 9. The square yardage for a room 10' by 12' would be 13.33 yards (10 x 12 = 120 divided by 9 = 13.33 yards).


A simple 2 bedroom home requires about 900 square feet of carpet. This covers the living room, the dining room, hallway and two bedrooms. 900 square feet is equal to 100 square yards. (900 divided by 9 = 100) 


Using the diagram below you can see the size of one square foot verses one square yard.

  • One square foot is 12 inches wide by 12 inches long. 

  • One square yard is 36 inches wide by 36 inches long. 

  • There are 9 square feet in one square yard.
