Don't need a template : I have a rug at home that is roughly the size of the Piano.

The concern is accoustic - see the OP.

Thanks

I have a 6' in a 16x24 carpeted room and it does fine. It can get a bit loud for me, with walls on two sides and the lowest part of the vaulted ceiling, but no one else has complained.

My living/piano room is about 14' x 18' (visual inspection-not actually measured). It does, through a large opening, open to another two rooms of similar size in series, and a smaller opening to the foyer of the house. My two grands sit inside just fine. We do mostly play with the lid closed, with the fly lid folded back so scores can be placed on the music desk. But even if full stick, I don't think the volume is a problem.

The pianos come with different hammers. The Hamburg B-using Renner Hamburg Steinway hammers, is brighter. The NY A-using original NY Steinway hammers, is softer. However, I think the A, which is a smaller piano, is overall slightly louder than the B. Not very accurately, this was seen on the recorded sound level from Zoom recorder in addition to subjective perception.

I don't think the formula, published quite a few years ago at Piano Buyer, of (W+L) x 2 / 10 is universally agreed upon.

So I think your room should be fine for any-sized pianos.
