How to Measure your Flooring
When it becomes time to replace flooring, the hardest part after deciding what colours/designs you want, is the measurement. Measuring and making sure you get the correct amount of flooring can be a difficult task, but here at ScS we’ve done the heavy lifting for you, and we have put together an easy to use guide on how to measure a room for flooring!
Once you have chosen the carpet, vinyl, laminate or wood flooring, take a minute before ordering to read through this guide for advice on measuring all types of flooring so you get the perfect fit first time.
Carpets and Vinyl
The process in which you measure your carpet may seem daunting at first, but it’s actually really easy! Simply measure the LENGTH and WIDTH of your room in METRES and simply add 10Cm to allow for the walls running out, as well as any fixtures or fittings that you currently have in the room, or that you’re planning on adding.
Laminate & Wood
Measuring your rooms for laminate and wood flooring is no different to how you would measure for carpets and vinyl! Measure the length and width of your room, and then add an extra 10cm to allow for cutting.
The only difference is that our laminate and wood flooring come in fixed pack sizes. When you go to buy any laminate or wood flooring, we have an online flooring calculator on that page to help you work out exactly how much you need to buy. Just enter your measurements when ordering, and our online Flooring Calculator will do the rest!
ScS Measuring Service
