OK so you have found the floor you want. So how much do you need to order and how much will it cost. Best to get hold of a tape measure, paper and pen Also maybe a calculator. Draw the shape of the rooms HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR FLOOR AREA
PINK ROOM    If you have a rectangular or square room measure length x width and multiply the two as shown here 5m x 4m =20m2
GREEN ROOM    If you have an L shaped room just divide it into two areas 4 x 3 = 12m2  and 2 x 2 = 4m2. Then just add the two together 12 + 4 = 16m2
BLUE ROOM    If you have an odd shaped room divide it into multiple areas ie: 5 x 2.2 = 11m2 3 x 1.5 = 4.5m2 and 2 x 1 = 2m2. Then add the different m2 areas together  11 + 4.5 + 2 = 17.5m2

Don’t forget you will probably need to allow a little bit more for wastage!. Often the recommended wastage is 5%. Simply add the three rooms together20m2 + 16m2 + 17.5m2 = 53.5m2 plus 5% = 56.17m2 BAY WINDOW  If you have a small angled area such as a Bay window, just multiply the maximum width by the depth. 5 x 1 = 5m2
