How Much Hardwood Flooring Do You Need for Your House Renovation?

The first step in determining how much hardwood flooring you'll need is to measure your space accurately. Measure the length and width of each room where you plan to install hardwood flooring. Multiply these numbers to get the square footage of each room. For example, if your living room is 15 feet by 20 feet, the total square footage is 300 square feet.

Consider Wastage

When ordering hardwood flooring, it's essential to account for wastage. During installation, there will be some pieces that need to be cut to fit corners, edges, and other obstacles. A good rule of thumb is to add an additional 10% to your total square footage to cover wastage. If your total calculated square footage is 1,000 square feet, you should order 1,100 square feet of flooring.

Room Layout and Flooring Direction

The layout of your rooms and the direction you plan to lay your flooring can also affect the amount of material you need. Diagonal or herringbone patterns typically require more flooring than traditional straight installations. Discuss your design plans with one of our experts at Williford Flooring Company Inc. to ensure you order the correct amount.

Multiple Rooms and Hallways

If your renovation includes multiple rooms and hallways, measure each area separately and then add the square footage together. Don’t forget to include closets and other small spaces in your measurements. Accurate measurements are crucial to avoid running short on materials during installation.
