Use this tool to quickly calculate the amount of flooring you need for your project.

## How to Use the Flooring Calculator

To use this calculator, simply fill in the room dimensions (length and width in feet), the cost of your chosen flooring per square foot, and your estimated wastage percentage. Click “Calculate” to get the total cost of flooring required for your project.

## How It Calculates the Results

The calculator uses the following formula to determine the total cost:

- First, it calculates the area of your room by multiplying the length by the width.
- Then, it multiplies the area by the cost per square foot to get the base cost.
- The calculator determines the cost of wastage by applying the wastage percentage to the base cost.
- Finally, it adds the base cost and the wastage cost to give you the total estimated cost of flooring.

## Limitations

This calculator provides an estimate and should be used for planning purposes only. Variations in flooring prices, wastage rates, and room complexities may affect the actual cost. For precise measurements and quotes, consult with a flooring professional.
