Costs Of Installing A New Carpet

Costs Of Installing A New Carpet

Deciding to install new carpet in your Townsville home is always an exciting adventure. One thing to consider is the budget for this.

The cost depends on different factors relevant to your house, as generally no two homes are completely the same. 

Carpet type

Carpets are typically priced by the broadloom metre (which is generally 3.66m wide x 1m in length) as you buy them off a roll, not in boxes like tiles or planks.

If you’re laying carpet in a high traffic area, such as a lounge or hallway, you may require a different type of product to a room that is only used occasionally.

This may mean that the extra money spent on the quality carpet will pay dividends in the end result.


Unless you are a qualified carpet layer, you’ll likely need professionals to install your carpet.

Our quotes often include underlay and fitting costs, but typically don’t cover moving furniture, disposing of old carpet and installing trims as these are additional variable items.

Therefore, it’s important to clarify all of the above with our sales team before sending out our carpet layer.

We do also offer carpets on a “supply only” basis for you to install yourself if required.

Room types 

Oddly-shaped rooms, permanent fixtures, stairs and different types of sub floors are all types of room variables that can affect the cost of installing a carpet.

Carpet also needs to be installed so that it is all running the same way to minimise colour and pattern changes.

If you live out of the town area this may also incur an additional charge.
