How To Measure Square Footage for Vinyl Flooring

Most vinyl flooring today is sold by the square foot. In order to calculate the amount of vinyl 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 vinyl flooring.

Our vinyl flooring calculator below is very basic to give you a rough idea of the total square footage needed of vinyl flooring and a estimated cost for material only. The calculator does 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.

When ordering vinyl and quoting a size, eg 3 by 2 metres, it would be useful to know if there an industry standard which dictates for example that the first measurement is always the width. This makes a big difference if the pattern runs one way.

Did not answer the question I had. When quoting a size, eg 3 by 2 metres, is there an industry standard which dictates for example that the first measurement is always the width? This makes a big difference if the pattern runs one way.
