One of the most popular carpet related questions we receive at RCR is How Big of a Carpet should I buy? The answer depends on your event size and how much space you have for your Red Carpet
It is important to measure your event space first then call for pricing. This will help you determine exactly how much space you have to roll out your carpet and give RCR the opportunity to provide you pricing and better assist with additional sizing / pricing questions.
Carpet sizing also differs by how you use it. If the carpet is being used as an entrance walkway, it is best to go with a longer carpet around a length of 15 or 20 feet. If you are just using it to pose for pictures, a length of about 10′ or less is ideal.
The average width of red carpet is 3′ – 4′ but that can also vary based on event space.
Many times, fashion shows take place on red carpets so you must account for how many people will be on it at one time. The average width of a person is about two feet, so if two people are walking at once, a width of at least 4′ is necessary.
These are just a few examples of how knowing your event and space can greatly help your search for the perfect carpet size. The more informed you are the easier it is!
