Quick question.
We are buying a new house and have been quoted £2100 to carpet lounge, hall, stairs, landing and 3 bedrooms.
It's a 3 bed semi.
The 3 bedrooms are a cheaper carpet the rest is better quality.
Does that sound reasonable?
I've no idea as haven't done this in ages.

Does that include underlay and fittings? If so, I'd say it was about right.

I think if it is fully inclusive then that’s about right. We were quoted around 1700 for four bedrooms (two quite small) landing and stairs

I paid 3k just yesterday for the same a 3 bed semi so about right I'd say

I’d say that’s cheap.

Location? Is this London?

I just paid £2300 for 4 beds and 2 sets of stairs and landings

Emilybrontescorsett Wed 06-Dec-17 22:10:08

It includes everything.
It's not London it's much further north.
So it sounds about right then from most of the replies.
Wow I was thinking around £500 for a living room, but that shows how good my sense of measurement is!

£1800 here for 3 bed terrace on a major budget.

You're carpeting the hallway?! I'd save yourself some money and have wood, we regretted carpeting the hall in our last house as it always ended up dirty from shoes walking in and traffic etc

I've just paid £400 for two bedrooms, stairs and landing. Only bedrooms needed underlay. Sounds very expensive to me!!

You can get it done cheaper but for more hassle. We did our 3 bed for £1000 but that was buying the carpets online and paying a carpet fitter off the books. Carpets still look great 5 years on so overall happy

Think we used online carpets (only thing we had to redo was kitchen but that's because we had Lino and the puppy chewed it! We have laminate now)

I’ve just been quoted 2k for a 3 bed, including underlay and room dividers etc. Bloody expensive if you ask me!

My dad paid £2k last year to completely floor a large 2 bed bungalow (mixture of carpet and Karndean type flooring) so I would say that’s about right.

We are going to go with it as I'm struggling to find the same quality and colour anywhere else who can fit it soon.
Hopefully it I'll last a very long time!

Depends on the carpet I suppose OP but that sounds ok to me.

AgnesSkinner Fri 08-Dec-17 20:08:55

How long is a piece of string? All depends on square footage, carpet and underlay quality and fitting.

78Indigo Fri 08-Dec-17 20:44:12

Ok not London, if you don't mind me asking where in the North? We supply and fit at extremely good prices all across the N West.

About 6k to do four very large doubles, 2 staircases, landing, lounge and playroom.

FruitCider Fri 08-Dec-17 22:10:11

This year I paid £1500 to have a 2 bed house fully carpeted and fitted with underlay and door bars etc. All my carpets were remnants. So I would say £2100 for a 3 bed is good value! X

Hi thanks 78 but we are in Yorkshire, and very cold at the moment!!! Hence needing thick carpets!

JourneyToThePlacentaOfTheEarth Sun 10-Dec-17 18:24:05

We paid 1500 for a 3 bed semi 2 years ago

Scuse typos

1800 for 4 bedrooms stair-case landing and living room, with underlay and room dividers. 2.5 years ago in South Manchester. It was from a small carpet fitting shop but they did a good job and I am pleased with it.
Recently got a quote for carpetting 4 bed landing staircase with underlay and budget hard-wearing carpet for 600 for my rental property in Milton Keynes. A really good quote but in the end only did the landing and stair-case for 200.
