A Step-by-Step Guide on How to Install Carpet in Bedrooms

Are you looking to add warmth, comfort, and style to your bedroom? Installing carpet can transform the look and feel of your space, providing a cozy atmosphere that invites relaxation. 

While the prospect of installing carpet may seem daunting at first, with the right tools and know-how, it can be a manageable DIY project. Let’s walk through the process of how to install carpet in your bedroom, step by step.

How to install carpet in a room

Gather your tools and materials

Before you begin, make sure you have all the necessary tools and materials on hand. You'll need:

  • Carpet in Calgary, AB from Flooring Superstores Calgary
  • Carpet pad
  • Tack strips
  • Knee kicker
  • Carpet stretcher
  • Carpet knife
  • Seam roller
  • Staple gun
  • Measuring tape
  • Utility knife
  • Hammer

Prepare the room

Start by removing any furniture from the room and thoroughly clean the floor surface. Check for any protruding nails or staples and remove them to ensure a smooth installation.

Install the carpet pad

Lay the carpet pad down evenly across the floor, making sure to trim any excess with a utility knife. Use a staple gun to secure the pad to the floor, placing staples approximately every six inches along the edges and seams.

Measure and cut the carpet 

Measure the dimensions of your room, adding a few inches to each side to allow for trimming. Roll out the carpet and use a utility knife to cut it to size, making sure to leave extra material along the edges.

Lay the carpeting

Begin by positioning one edge of the carpet against the longest wall in the room. Use a knee kicker to stretch the carpet tightly against the opposite wall, securing it in place with tack strips along the edges. Repeat this process for each side of the room, ensuring that the carpet is stretched evenly and smoothly across the floor.

Trim any excess carpeting 

Once the carpet is in place, use a carpet knife to trim any excess material along the edges, taking care to cut along the baseboards for a clean finish.

Secure carpeting seams

If your room requires multiple pieces of carpet, use a seam roller to press the seams together firmly, ensuring a seamless transition between sections.

Finish the edges

Finally, use a hammer to nail down any loose tack strips along the edges of the room, securing the carpet in place and preventing it from shifting over time.
