Manual flooring calculations

Follow the examples below to work out your flooring area manually.
Note: Add an additional 5% material waste to allow for off-cuts.

For a Rectangular Floor Area:
Measure your area to have floor covering to determine quantity of timber flooring required.
This area is simply calculated by:
Length (m) X Width (m) = Area (m²) for basic square or rectangular spaces. (where m = metres)
eg.    10m X 5m = 50m²

For an Odd Shaped Floor Area:
For odd shapes, break your area into rectangular sections.
eg. A) 3m x 5m = 15m²
      B) 2m X 4m= 8m²
      C) 5m X 2m= 10m²
      Total = 33m²

For a Triangular Floor Area:
For triangular areas, use the formula:
1/2 X [ Base (m) X Height (m) ] = Area (m²)
eg.    1/2 (5m X 4m) = 10m²
