This tool helps you quickly and accurately calculate the amount of carpet needed for your stairs.

## How to Use the Carpet Calculator for Stairs

This tool helps you estimate the amount of carpet you will need to cover your stairs. Please follow these steps:

- Enter the total number of steps on your stairs in the “Number of Steps” field.
- Provide the width of each step in meters in the “Width of Each Step” field.
- Enter the depth of each step in meters in the “Depth of Each Step” field. This is the horizontal measurement from the front to the back of each step.
- Input the rise of each step in meters in the “Rise of Each Step” field. This is the vertical measurement from one step to the next.
- Click the “Calculate” button to get the total amount of carpet you need in square meters.

### Calculation Method

The total carpet required is calculated based on the surface area of each step, which includes both the step surface and the riser. The calculation formula is:

Total Carpet Required = Number of Steps * (Step Width * (Step Depth + Step Rise))

For example, if you have 10 steps, each 1 meter wide, 0.3 meters deep, and with a rise of 0.18 meters, the calculation would be:

10 * (1 * (0.3 + 0.18)) = 10 * 0.48 = 4.8 square meters

### Limitations

Please note this calculator assumes all steps are of the same dimensions, and the calculation does not account for any landings or irregular step shapes. It provides a rough estimate, and you may need to purchase slightly more carpet to ensure complete coverage.
