## Lineal/Sq. Footage Calculator

Enter lineal ft and the fabric width to calculate the entire sq. footage of fabric. If you understand how many sq. ft of fabric, enter that and the fabric width to transform to lineal ft.

## The best way to Calculate Sq. Footage

Sq. footage is space expressed in sq. ft. Likewise, sq. yardage is space expressed in sq. yards. Sq. meters can be a standard measure of space.

Assume you could have an oblong space comparable to a room and, for instance, you wish to calculate the sq. footage space for flooring or carpet.

The best way to calculate an oblong space is by measuring the size and width of your space then multiplying these two numbers collectively to get the realm in ft squared (ft^{2}). When you have on oddly formed space, comparable to an L-shape, break up it into sq. or rectanglualar sections and deal with them as two separate areas. Calculate the realm of every part then add them collectively on your complete. In case your measurements are in several items, say ft and inches, you’ll be able to first convert these values to ft, then multiply them collectively to get the sq. footage of the realm.

### Convert all your measurements to ft

- For those who measured in ft skip to “Calculate the Space as Sq. Footage”
- For those who measured in ft & inches, divide inches by 12 and add that to your ft measure to get complete ft
- For those who measured in one other unit of measure, do the next to convert to feet – inches: divide by 12 and that’s your measurement in ft – yards: multiply by 3 and that’s your measurement in ft – centimeters: multiply by 0.03281 to transform to ft – meters: multiply by 3.281 to transform to ft

### Calculate the Space as Sq. Footage

- In case you are measuring a sq. or rectangle space, multiply size instances width; Size x Width = Space.
- For different space shapes, see formulation under to calculate Space (ft
^{2}) = Sq. Footage.

## The best way to estimate the flooring price?

As soon as you understand how a lot materials you want, it is time to seize your pockets and drive to that Dwelling Depot. Earlier than you do it, although, you’ll be able to spend just a few extra seconds to **predict how a lot you are going to pay** for the flooring.

All that you must do is decide the value per one sq. foot of your chosen materials, be it hardwood, vinyl, or laminate flooring. For instance, your materials of alternative could be offered at 3 $/m^{2}.

As soon as this value, multiply it by the sq. footage of the fabric that you must purchase to learn the way a lot it should price you. If the value is just too excessive on your liking, make certain to contemplate different choices – for instance installing tiles or selecting a less expensive end that you’re going to cowl with a carpet.

Naturally, this value would not have in mind further supplies comparable to thresholds or particular edging. If the kind of flooring you selected is tough to put in, you may additionally have to incorporate the price of tools (comparable to sanders or flooring rollers) and even rent a contractor that can assist you.

## Levels 2 and three (for stone and ceramic flooring tiles)

### Stage 2

In stage one, you labored out the sq. footage of your house. In stage two, that you must work out what number of tiles it should take to fill that house. Clearly, that is dependant on the scale of tiles you've chosen.

Simply use our useful chart under to seek out the quantity that you must divide by. Then, simply divide the sq. ft space of the room by the quantity from the chart.

**Your tile dimension / The quantity to divide by**

- 4" x 4" / 0.1089
- 6" x 6" / 0.25
- 9" x 9" / 0.5625
- 12" x 12" / 1
- 18" x 18" / 2.25

E.g. A 140ft^{2} room goes to be fitted out with 9" terracotta flooring tiles, so that you divide 140 by the quantity from the chart, which for 9" tiles is 0.5625.

140 รท 0.5625 = 248.9 tiles

### Stage 3

The ultimate stage is simply to purchase just a few extra packing containers than you assume you want; you’ll positively use greater than the quantity you calculated within the second stage. Tiles are prone to get damaged through the becoming course of, and it's all the time a good suggestion to maintain a spare pack for years sooner or later in case any get broken. Stone tiles can range as a result of their pure colouring, and producers can range or discontinue traces, so do purchase additional within the first occasion, fairly than hoping for an in depth sufficient match later down the road.

To work out what number of additional to get, multiply the variety of tiles by 1.05 for a 5% enhance, or by 1.1 for a ten% enhance.

E.g. 248.9 x 1.1 = 274 tiles (all the time spherical up the decimal level to provide a extra beneficiant margin)
