How to measure your floor

Ordering new flooring for your home is easy with ScS, but the idea of measuring your room correctly, ensuring you don’t purchase too much and waste your money, or too little and run out, can be a little daunting.

When you have chosen the carpetvinyllaminate or wood flooring that you like, take some time before you place your order to look at our guide to measuring for flooring below. This guide includes advice on how to measure for carpets, laminate, wood flooring and vinyl, so whatever you have chosen, you can make sure your new flooring is the perfect fit.

Carpets & Vinyl

Measuring your room for a new carpet or vinyl flooring might seem like the most difficult part of the buying process, but it’s actually quite simple. Measure the length and width of your room in metres and simply add 10cm to allow for the walls running out, as well as any fixtures or fittings.

Laminate & Wood

Measuring your rooms for laminate and wood flooring is just the same as measuring for a carpet or vinyl floor: simply measure your length and width of your room, and then add an extra 10cm to allow for cutting.

However, our laminate and wood flooring comes in fixed pack sizes, and we have an online Flooring Calculator to help you work out how much you need to buy. Just enter your measurements when ordering, and our online Flooring Calculator will tell you!
