Laminate Flooring is becoming increasingly popular and the question I keep getting asked time and time again How do I measure for Laminate Flooring. Because of the amount of times I get e-mails and phone calls asking this question I thought it would be best to write an article regarding it.
Where do I start?
Right let us start at the beginning. The first thing you need to do is find out how much laminate flooring you are going to need. To do this you will need to measure the width of your room and also the length of your room in feet. Write these figures down then multiply them both together. This will then give you the size of your room in square feet. You will then need to add 10% for wastage.
Width 5 metresx Length 4 metres = 20sqms + 10% = 22sqm
So you will need 22sqm of flooring.
Now you need to find out how many packs you require. If the laminate flooring you have chosen comes in packs of say 1.5sqm then just divide you room size by this number.
22sqm divided by 1.5sqm = 14.66 packs.
Rounded up to the next pack means you will need 15 packs of flooring.
