How to Measure for Flooring

How much flooring do you need?

Buying online is a modern and contemporary approach to every part of life. It can be almost impossible to imagine starting the management of your renovation yourself without the knowledge or even knowing where the start line for your renovation is.

Let’s help….

You’ll need a tape measure.

You know which room you need to update or remind yourself you had a life before the 18 yrs someone else stole it…..

Games room, guest room, music room or a revamp of the living/social space.

2 easy steps

Measure the space

Divide the space into simple shapes(luckily builders can’t see much past a square even though they rarely build anything close!!!)

Measuring your room for flooring

Measure each square individually. Let’s work in metres (m)

The length of the room multiplied by the width of the room. 4 x 5 = 20

The sum of these squares equals the total space.

Understanding your overorder

We have to allow for waste material, the waste from flooring is the offcut from the last tile/plank from a row of the modular floor covering.

Very often with modular flooring(tiles/planks, meaning a floor covering supplied in multiple parts and not a consistent sheet) we can use the offcut to start the next row or fill another area requiring a cut piece.

Therefore we don’t have a huge amount of waste, 7 – 10% of extra material is required for wasted material that cannot be reused after it has been cut from piece already used.

Your required material.

Example

  1. Lounge+hall+bedroom 1 = total area
  2. Floor space: 20 + 8 + 12 = 40
  3. Overorder: 40 x 1.1 = 44
  4. => 44 m2

That’s your order – 44 m2
