Every week some will ask me over the phone “How much will my carpet cost?”. This is a question that it is a really difficult to give an accurate answer to without knowing how much carpet you need and what kind of carpet you want to put down.
However most people want a rough idea whether they can afford a new carpet or flooring so I have put my thinking cap on and I have come up with the following table, which shows a vary rough estimate of the starting price for carpet cost, supplied and fitted various rooms, in various qualities of carpet, with and without underlay.
|Room||Approx size||Product||Fitted prices start at|

|Large Bedroom||16m2||Felt backed bedroom carpet||£190|
|50/50 Twist pile||£275
Extra for underlay
|Lounge||20m2||50/50 Twist pile, with underlay||£420|

We always recommend using underlay in rooms or areas that get loads of wear, like lounges, halls, stairs and landings. This is because underlay prolongs the life of your carpets and makes them look good for longer. If you already have underlay this can be used provided it is not worn out. Don’t fit your new carpet on old underlay as it will make it wear out quicker!
This is just a rough guide. To get an accurate price get a local company to come round to measure up and give you a quote. Most companies including us (we supply and fit carpets Leicestershire, Rugby, Northampton and surrounding areas) will do this for free with no obligation.
