All wood flooring is supplied in planks or tiles which each individually cover a small area and can be cut to cover a complex layout with little wastage.
The simplest way to assess the total floor area is to measure the fullest length and width of the room to be tiled. Multiply these two measurements together to get the square area and add 10% for cutting errors.
For a more accurate measurement, divide the room into large rectangular areas, squaring off any curves or small alcoves. Find the square area of each of these large rectangles and add them all together, allowing a further 10% for cutting errors.
Each pack of planks or tiles will detail the square area that the pack can cover. Divide your total square area by this figure to calculate the number of packs you will need, remembering to round up.
