How can I measure an L-shaped room for carpet? What about allowances?

What’s the general rule when adding allowances to the total measurements? Is it better to have a professional do this?

    Measuring the area of the room is one of the initial steps you’ll have to take if you’re planning to have it carpeted. You can use a tape measure when doing this, just bear in mind that it’s better to have another person to help you do the measuring.

    To get started, measure the length and width by placing the tape measure against the wall at one end and extending it to the other end. Once you’ve determined the length and width, multiple the two values to get the area in square metres. When measuring an L-shaped room, the same principles apply, it’s just that you have to measure the room as two separate rooms: the long section and the short section of the L.

    There’s no fixed value when it comes to allowances but to be safe, a lot 5 to 8 centimetres allowance.

The living planet; the third planet from the sun. It's not a wonder why earth is the most special creation in the galaxy. It's the only planet where life exists; the only perfect planet among the eight. Have you ever thought a funny idea about how universe expanded, how tremendous the explosion was that it resulted into the formation of, to make it simple and short, our galaxy and its uniqueness; and why Earth is the only living planet? More questions piling up over the other unanswered questions. Despite all that, Earth must remain special of all and humans should be grateful for being here.
