Video Transcript:

This video will walk you through how to measure a room for wood, laminate flooring and luxury vinyl tiles. But don’t worry, the process is simple.

Wood flooring, along with laminate and luxury vinyl tiles, are sold in packs.

Getting started is easy. All you need is:

- Paper - A4 works fine
- Pen or pencil
- Tape measure
- Calculator – for most people, this will just mean their smartphone

Roughly sketch the shape of the room you’re measuring. Make sure you include any doorways, as you’ll need to take your measurements from halfway into the doorframe.

Use your tape measure to take two measurements, in metres, on both the length and width of the room.

For rooms that aren’t a simple square, for example ones that have bay windows or alcoves, simply take measurements of the longest and widest parts.

Times both your measurements together to find your area in metres squared.

To allow for wastage, add 10%

TOP TIP: to quickly add the recommended 10% wastage, simply times each measurement by 1.1.

For this room, you’ll be left with 24.75m².

To work out how many packs you need, divide your room size by your chosen flooring’s pack size. Round this up to the nearest full number, and you have your required quantity.

If you’re still unsure, or would prefer to speak to a professional, Flooring Superstore is on hand to help.

## 12. Measuring floor variations & applying floor leveler

Houses have floors that are built up wood layers or cement (like a slab). When contractors are building, 'time is of the essence' which means they can spend a lot of time making it perfect, or take just enough time to make money. That is why we need floor leveling products! I show you how to measure the floor for variations and then pour the floor leveler in those areas to ensure a flat area. If you would like to see how to mix the leveling compound, watch my video titled "Self Leveling Compound: How to Mix"
