About the Flooring Cost Calculator
How to Calculate Flooring Cost?
To calculate flooring cost you will need both the area of the room and the cost of the material per square foot. If the parameters of the job will include some waste percentage then the calculator will allow you to include waste percentage. Once you have calculated the area of the room and figured out the total material required then multiply the total material required by the material cost to get the total flooring cost. Alternatively, you can use the above SkyCiv flooring cost calculator.
How do you Calculate Floor Area?
For rectangular or square rooms it is very easy to calculate the floor area. This is just a simple equation of length multiplied by width. For rooms of different layouts more complicated equations will need to be used beyond the scope of the flooring cost calculator.
What Types of Flooring Exist?
Many types of flooring exist and can be used with the flooring cost calculator. Different types of flooring materials that are commonly used include:
- Laminate Flooring
- Timber and Hardwood Flooring
- Tile Flooring
- Vinyl Flooring

Does the Flooring Cost Calculator Consider Waste?
The flooring cost calculator allows you to consider waste percentage. If you do not wish to include the waste percentage into the flooring cost calculations then simply adjust the input to 0%.
Do Other Flooring Costs Need to be Considered?
It is likely that other costs will need to be considered when calculating the total cost of installing new flooring. These costs will be dependent on the material used, the type of subfloor underneath and whether you are using an installer or installing the floor yourself. Some potential additional costs may include labor costs, removal costs, subfloor preparation costs, equipment costs and finishing and cleaning costs.
