How to measure your floors

Quick Guide


Below is a quick guide to working out how many square meters of
flooring you need for your room.

We suggest you allow an additional 5% for wastage.

 The majority of floor manufacturers as well as fitters recommend a minimum of 5% wastage when ordering a wood floor, this will hopefully allow for those small mistakes and complicated cuts. Sometimes on occasions there are small pieces that cannot be used anywhere without spoiling the look of the floor.  

Standard Room 

1. Find the two widest areas (a,b)
2. Multiply the two sizes
3. 4.35 x 5.25 = 22.83m2
4. Total metres required 22.83
L Shaped Room

1. Divide room into two rectangular sections (see plan)
2. Take the four sizes and multiply as below
3. 2.33 x 5.25 = 12.23m2 and 1.75 x 4.25 = 7.43m2
4. Add the two sizes together
5. 12.23 + 7.43 = 19.76m2
6. Total metres required 19.76



 
3 Way Room/Hallway

1.   Divide room into three rectangular sections
2.   Take all sizes and multiply them as below...
3.   1.10 x 1.75 = 1.925m2 
     
1.10 x 1.75 = 1.925m2
     
5.00 x 1.00 = 5.00m2
4.   Add the three sizes together
5.   1.925 + 1.925 + 5.00 = 8.85
6.   Total metres required 8.85m2
