When there are quite a lot of flooring materials, you would definitely require a guide to help you on how to do the exact measurement.

Am I right in this perspective?

If so, please continue reading this blog and gain knowledge on how to do this measurement easily.

Wood flooring

Let us first start with wood flooring. In general when you look at hardwood or wood flooring, the simplest thing you will get reminded is that this type of flooring is sold in packs. So, when you have to get it for yourself, you need to know about how much packs you require based upon the size of your room. Also, you need to consider the dimensions by dividing your room into square metres.

Laminate flooring

Same is with laminate flooring. Even this type of flooring is sold in packs which are divided in square metres. So the only thing you need to keep in mind is to check whether there are any patterns or dimensions on different planks that run in the similar direction. Based on this you could decide on how many packs you are going to buy for your room.

Carpet flooring

As you all know, carpets come in standardized rolls. The point that has to be mentioned here is that these rolls come in a width of 2, 4, or 5m. If the area to be covered exceeds the following dimensions then a link or attachment has to be brought in to fuse all these links together.

The most important thing that has to be noted is that the glue or joint that has been used should never seem unreal or different from the carpet.

Even placement plays an important role in carpet flooring. Measure how long the carpet would run properly so that it is easier to lay them.

There are quite a lot of patterns and considering that the only thing that has to be kept in mind is that though there are many patterns, designs and colours, the carpet must run in the same direction. Otherwise, there will be a huge problem in the light reflection.

Let me conclude by giving you a simple hack that would help you calculate the size of material and space you actually need:

Start by dividing the size of your room in square metres by the square metres of the material. This helps you calculate how much you actually need to buy.

For example, if a room is 400m² and you are planning to do wooden flooring there. How much packs you need to buy?

Check for the wooden flooring pack. Each pack has 4m2 wooden material in it. So how will you calculate in this case?

Simple, 400/4 = 100 packs.

Also, don’t forget to measure the staircase, the landing so that you get a clear illustration of how much exactly you require the space for flooring. Regarding the materials, purchase an additional set of materials so that you could use them for any kind of adjusments.
