How To Measure Your Floor
It’s nearly impossible to know the cost of a new floor without knowing how much of it you need. We have a simple method to help you measure your floor space so you know how much flooring you need to order.
L-Shaped Room / Hallway
Large Room With Several Corners
And if you’ve got a complicated room, this method still works. Simply split the room into as many rectangles as needed. Multiply the length and width of each rectangle to find the areas, then add them all together to find the total area.
Remember to jot down the measurements as you go along!
Important Tip To Remember
It’s standard to add an extra 5% on to your area to allow for the usual wastage that occurs during installation. To calculate this, you’ll need to multiply the total area by 1.05. However, parquet and tiled floors where the installation starts in the middle of the room require 7-10% wastage as it’s likely you’ll have to cut more boards than with a regular, strait-lay design.
