Our flooring calculator, also known as a square foot calculator for flooring, simplifies the process of estimating the total surface area and cost of your flooring project. Whether you're renovating a single room, an entire house, or multiple floors, this tool ensures accurate calculations to help you stay within budget.

To calculate the total surface area and cost of flooring based on the dimensions of up to five different areas, and the cost per square foot of your flooring material, you can use the following steps:

**Step 1: Calculate the total surface area**

**Measure the Length and Width of each area**: Use a measuring tape to get the length and width of each area in feet.**Calculate the Area of each space**: Multiply the length by the width for each area to get the square footage.

Area (sq ft) = Length (ft) x Width (ft)**Sum the Areas of all spaces**: Add the square footage of all areas to get the total surface area.

Total Surface Area (sq ft) = Area1 + Area2 + Area3 + Area4 + Area5

**Step 2: Calculate the total cost**

**Determine the Cost per Square Foot**: Find out the cost per square foot of your chosen flooring material.**Calculate the Total Cost**: Multiply the total surface area by the cost per square foot.

Total Cost ($) = Total Surface Area (sq ft) x Cost per Square Foot ($/sq ft)

Here's an example:

Let's say you have the following measurements for five different areas:

- Area 1: 12 ft (length) x 10 ft (width) = 120 sq ft
- Area 2: 15 ft (length) x 12 ft (width) = 180 sq ft
- Area 3: 10 ft (length) x 9 ft (width) = 90 sq ft
- Area 4: 14 ft (length) x 10 ft (width) = 140 sq ft
- Area 5: 8 ft (length) x 7 ft (width) = 56 sq ft

Total Surface Area = 120 + 180 + 90 + 140 + 56 = 586 sq ft

If the cost of your flooring material is $3 per square foot, the total cost calculation would be:

Total Cost = 586 sq ft x $3/sq ft = $1,758

**Buffer for Waste**

It's important to account for waste due to cutting and fitting. Typically, a buffer of 10% is reasonable.

Total Surface Area with Buffer = 586 sq ft x 1.10 = 644.6 sq ft Total Cost with Buffer = 644.6 sq ft x $3/sq ft = $1,933.80

So, in this example, you would need 644.6 square feet of flooring material, costing approximately $1,933.80.
