How To Measure A Floor Before A Flooring Installation

How To Measure A Floor Before A Flooring Installation

You've done your homework, browsed catalogues, and studied tile samples. You've finally selected the ideal flooring for your home after a long search. Measure the floor as the final step before placing your order. This is an important step because a modest order will have you scurrying to match the product appropriately. In contrast, a huge order will be a waste of restoration cash. Follow these easy 3 steps to correctly measure your flooring.

#1. Determine The Layout Of The Room

Rooms that are square or rectangular are the easiest to measure at a time to calculate flooring. If you're working with a spherical or triangular area, you'll need a different measurement formula. When you look at most spaces appropriately, they are made up of a succession of rectangles. Break your space down into smaller rectangles if it isn't a single open rectangle. Make a floor plan for the room and take measurements for each section.

#2. Room Measuring

You must measure the width and length of each section of the room. You may compute square footage in rectangular areas by multiplying these measures. If your space is made up of numerous squares or rectangles, multiply each one's length by its width and sum the results to get the overall square footage.

Multiply the length by the breadth and divide by two if your space is triangular. It's more challenging to work in circular spaces. The area of half a circle in a circular room can be calculated using the formula (3.14 x Radius x radius)/2.

#3. Take Note Of Your Waste Factor

To account for waste, you should add a percentage to your order. This will provide you with additional flooring to accommodate corners or curves effectively. It also provides a safety buffer in case of any faults or breakage during the installation procedure. A professional can operate with a very low waste factor. Still, you should plan on at least a 5% waste factor if you're doing your flooring installation.
