I am off to buy some of this stuff later as one of my bedrooms is being plastered later this week:

depending when you are having it done, you can get plastic adhesive sheeting (like they use on 60 minute makeover- I have never watched that but my friend saw it and used it)

Loads of companies on line do it, like this

google carpet protection film. I am definitely using it next time I decorate or have anywhere plastered especially as you can cover windows with it. It is amazing how many splats there are on windows and skirting after plastering!

I have builders in today and the first thing they did was put that tacky plastic cover on the stairs. Maybe worth asking what they will do to protect your carpets etc before you do it yourself?
