If you want to know how many cubic yards your room contains, you need an additional measurement outside of the carpet calculate. A square yard is the length times the width, where as a cubic yard is the length times the width times the height. So to convert square yards to cubic yards, you need to multiply your result by the height.

  • Enter your dimensions into the carpet calculator. If you have the measurements in feet, you can use your own calculator or find a link to an online calculator in Resources.

  • Click calculate. The results will show carpet in square yards.

  • Measure the height of the carpet if you want to know its cubic dimensions. If you want to know the volume of the room you're installing wall-to-wall carpet in, measure the floor-to-ceiling height.

  • Multiply the square yardage by the height from Step 3 to find the volume in cubic yards.
