How much carpet, laminate, hardwood, vinyl or tile flooring will I need to purchase?

This calculator should be used as an estimating tool ONLY.

  • After entering the dimensions of the room, click Calculate, and the calculator will provide you with the number of square yards of flooring you'll need.

    Note: Carpet and vinyl flooring is sold in varying widths, hardwood and laminate flooring is available in different lengths and floor tile comes in various sizes. The square yardage number needs to be converted to the specific dimensions of the product used. You should allow for at least a 10% overage in flooring material. In some cases, the overage will be higher depending on the size and shape of the area you're working with. For carpet installation, plan for a 20% overage.
