Getting it right
It's important to measure up carefully. To make sure you order enough flooring, you should measure the maximum width and length of the room including any recess or doorway. We recommend you add 16cm on to each dimension to allow for wastage with our rolls and add 5% onto the total area for planks and tiles. For planks and tiles, it's also always a good idea to order a spare pack or two for repairs over the lifetime of your floor.
Put those dimensions into our calculator and it will then work out how much you need. For unusual-shaped spaces it may be useful to divide the room into 2 or 3 separate sections. If you want to keep wastage to an absolute minimum, though, we recommend you draw a floor plan and calculate for yourself.
Please note that with our roll flooring the amount you need won't necessarily be the same as the total area of your room: it has to be a multiple of the width of the roll. We don't take responsibility for any shortfall in, or surplus of, material resulting from use of the Flooring Calculator.
We've noticed people often make mistakes with roll orders of a smaller size. Remember, our rolls come in widths of either 2m or 1.9m, so if you place an order for 2sq m you will receive a piece that is 1m or 1.05m in length respectively.
We appreciate it can all get a bit complicated when it comes to working out the area of flooring you need. That's why we also provide a special service to help you work it out. Simply contact us and we'll crunch the numbers for you.
