What is Carpet Area and how is it calculated?

Simply put, Carpet area is the area between the walls, that is, the actual area to lay the carpet on. This area does not include the thickness of the inner walls. It is the actual used area of an apartment or commercial unit. Additionally, carpet area must have a permanent roof over it, at a normal height.

Carpet area is calculated by multiplying dimensions of a room, i.e. length x width. We get the total carpet area by adding carpet areas of all the rooms, varandas, passages, gallery inside the main door and balconies.

Depending upon the builder practice, carpet area may be 50% to 70% of the saleable area. It is used to calculate the cost of the property you’re buying. So, if you’re planning to buy an apartment or an office, always check the ratio of carpet area to the saleable area; because higher the ratio, the better value you get for your money!

There are other terms as well, that will help you size up the value of space you’re getting for the price you’re paying. These are: built up area and super built up area, about which we’ll talk in the upcoming blogs. So if you found this information useful, do follow us and share the post with your friends.

Why pay for property space you cannot use?

While buying an apartment or an office, it is important to analyse the quality of the architectural planning, so that do not end up paying for space you will never be able to utilise efficiently. This space is called ‘Negative Space’

Negative Space is the area not occupied by any useful construction. This part of the property plan is often neglected, used inappropriately as an afterthought.

The term ‘Negative Space’ comes from the world of art, where it was used as a composition tool between objects in both two- and three-dimensional work. However, in times of rising property prices, shrinking living areas and smartly designed homes, there should be no room for space that is not utilized efficiently.

Having no negative space in an apartment means, having no neglected or unutilized areas on the floor plan. Since the cost of your purchase is calculated on the basis of square foot area, every inch matters.

Smartly designed apartments and other properties will always have the layout in such a way that your property smartly uses every inch of the space you’ve paid for,  while providing you an airy, efficient and comfortable living / working area.
