If you are considering whether or not to lay a new floor in your home, the first task you have to get right is correctly measuring the space you have to work with. Not only will it help you accurately budget the project but it will also give you an idea of the time it will take.
Accurately measuring a room before choosing your new flooring is critical to a smooth project and in achieving a perfect result. Not correctly measuring the indentations around an alcove, fireplace or forgetting to include the top step of the landing are all common mistakes that can cost you money and set you back.
After 29 years working in the flooring industry, how to measure correctly remains one of the most common questions I get asked and unfortunately I have seen many customers who fall at this first hurdle. To help, I have created a free guide to take away some of the headache. It includes how to accurately measure areas for solid wood flooring, laminate and carpets.
The ‘How to take accurate floor measurements’ guide includes sections on:
- Measuring the total area of a room
- Indentations and recesses
- Details on measuring L-shaped areas.
