How do I measure the amount of flooring I need for my space?
Measuring the amount of flooring you need is an essential step to ensure accurate ordering and minimize waste. Here's a general guide to measuring your space:
- Measure the length and width of the room in meters or feet.
- Multiply the length by the width to determine the total square meter or square footage of the room.
- If your room has irregular shapes or features like closets or alcoves, measure them separately and add the totals to the main area.
- Consider adding a small percentage (usually around 5-10%) to account for wastage, cuts, or future repairs.
- Check the packaging or product description for the coverage area of each box of flooring to calculate the number of boxes required.
If you need assistance or have specific measurement questions, our experts can guide you through the process and help you determine the right quantity of flooring for your space.
- Can I install your flooring over existing flooring?
In many cases, flooring can be installed over existing flooring, but it depends on the type of flooring you currently have and the condition of the subfloor. It's essential to assess the stability, levelness, and integrity of the existing flooring and subfloor before making a decision. In some cases, it may be necessary to remove the existing flooring or prepare the subfloor to ensure a proper installation. We recommend consulting with a professional installer or our team to evaluate your specific situation and determine the best course of action.
