The **Flooring Calculator** provides area calculations to estimate the square feet of flooring material needed. Then use that square footage with the dollars per square feet of the materials selected.

**Floor Area by Dimensions**- Computes the square feet (area) of a floor based on the length and width (LxW) of the room entered in feet and inches.**Floor Area + (Angle Bump-out) -**Computes square feet of a room based on the length and width of main room and the front and back width and depth of a bump-out.**Floor Area + (Squared Bump-out)**- Computes square feet of a room based on the length and width of main room and squared bump-out.**Flooring Cost by Square Feet Covered**- Computes the cost of flooring material based on the square feet of the room and unit price per square foot of the flooring. Use this for cost of flooring with rooms with bump-outs after computing the total area (TA) using the bump-out functions above.**Flooring Cost by Area Dimensions**- Computes the cost of flooring based on the dimensions (LxW) of the room and the unit price per square foot of the floor.

The above prices are for different flooring materials and price points in the United States as advertised on the date indicated by a large big-box DIY retailer on their public website. A retailer is surveyed and the number of products included in the survey is listed. Survey sample is typically not the complete product line of the retailer. This is purely for convenience of calculator users to make a rough estimate. Sample pricing is entered into Price Survey Tools to generate the statistics found above.

**CAUTION**: The pricing information provided is for calculating convenience with NO implied guarantees to the accuracy of the values listed. Authoritative sources should be sought to confirm any value **before risking health or wealth **on the veracity of the data. Furthermore, vCalc gives no guarantee that you will be able to buy products at listed prices or even if they will be available. The data provided is purely a convenience for making estimates, so we strongly recommend that one ALWAYS use local pricing and authoritative specifications.

- What's the square footage of my flooring area?
- How much flooring material do I need?
- Which material is cheaper?
- What is the price estimate for my flooring?

If you are a "do it yourself" (DIY) kind of person and willing to do the installation of the different flooring types, the main cost is the materials. This suite of calculators helps with calculating the materials needed, and in providing an estimate of the cost of the materials based on recent pricing and your area specifications. Use this calculator to see if you can afford a higher quality or longer living flooring material. Enter your dimensions and then click through the material options to see how much the material costs would be for the area you've defined.
