What is Carpet Area ?

When you go to buy a property, you may hear the term carpet area, built-up area, super built-up area, and so on.


Simply put, a carpet area is a space where we can instal carpet. It is a space that is located between external walls and contains a stairway, a kitchen, a bathroom, and many rooms. The carpet area does not include balconies, service shafts, or communal areas.

After the Real Estate Regulation and Development Act (RERA) went into effect in 2016, there have been certain modifications in the carpet area. Prior to RERA, internal walls used to partition rooms were not included in the carpet area. However, they are now included in this definition. The carpet area is calculated using the following formula: The carpet area is equal to the sum of the interior wall and floor areas.


We shall now talk about what the Built-up area means. The term “built-up area” refers to the full carpeted space as well as any interior or exterior walls that bear weight. External walls, linked balconies, verandahs, a service shaft area, and a servant quarters are all examples of included areas. Terraces and communal areas like escalators and stairs are excluded. The built-up area of a building is computed by multiplying the total floor space by the carpet area, wall area, and exclusive balcony area.


The phrase “hyper built-up area” will be mentioned to you when you buy a home. It refers to a flat’s build-up space and proportionate shared area. For instance, if an apartment complex has 8 flats and 8000 square feet of total common space, each apartment will have 1000 square feet of common space. Super Built-Up Area = Carpeted Area * (Loading Factor – 1) *LOADING FACTOR – The difference between the Super Built-Up Area and the Carpeted Area is known as the loading factor.
