How To Measure Square Footage of Hardwood Flooring

Most hardwood flooring today is sold by the square foot. In order to calculate the amount of hardwood you need for a room you first need to calculate the total square feet of the area you want to cover. We also recommend you add about 10% extra to your square footage to make sure you have enough material and don't run short while installing your hardwood flooring.

Our hardwood flooring calculator below is very basic to give you a rough idea of the total square feet needed of hardwood flooring and a estimated cost for material only. We do not take into account pattern repeats or special widths. But this will give you some idea of the costs and material needed for your flooring project.

If you need help see the WFCA flooring stores locator for professional flooring retailers in your area that can help you and give you a free estimate.
