It's a good idea to take the time to estimate how much
laminate flooring material you'll need, even if you're planning
to have a professional install your floor. You'll avoid
buying too much, or worse, getting too little and having
to place another order. Here's the simple way to figure
out what you'll need:
- Using a 25 foot metal tape measure, measure the
length and width of your room(s). Always measure all
the way into the doorway and all the way into closets.
It sounds fundamental, but be sure to run your tape
measure all the way to the farthest wall.
- Draw a picture of your room(s) to scale and write
in the length and width.
- Multiply the length times the width. That tells
you the total amount of laminate flooring in square
feet that you'll need to do the job. Then add an additional
10% for waste (and for "attic stock" to be saved for
possible repairs later on). When you place your
order online, Efloors.com will automatically calculate
the number of full boxes of laminate flooring you'll
Trims and moldings
Check out our trims and moldings page to figure out what's
needed for your job. Then take a look at the trim, molding
and other accessories on the Efloors.com product page of
the particular laminate floor you're buying. These products
are ordered by the piece.
It's smart to protect your laminate flooring investment
with a good underlayment. Decide what type of underlayment
you need for the conditions in your home, and order a high-quality
product that's made or recommended by the manufacturer of
your laminate floor.
When ordering underlayment,
use only the actual square footage of your room(s) as the
basis for your order. There's no need to add 10% for waste;
underlayment is typically sold in rolls of 100 sq. ft.,
so chances are you'll end up with a little extra anyway.
