How to correctly calculate the number of floorboards

Consumers often have questions about the number of floorboards they require. This may refer both to the determination of the floor area and the number of boards of a given size, and in some cases to the determination of the volume. Knowing the number of boards, you can proceed to determine the cost of the order.

Floor area
If there are several rooms, then first you need to determine their total area in square meters.

For example, you need to cover the floor with a board in two rooms and a corridor. The dimensions of these premises are determined by the formula: P \u003d L x W, where P is the area in square meters. m, L – length in m, W – width in m.

  • 1st room: 4.0 m x 3.5 m = 14 sq. m
  • 2nd room: 5.0 m x 4.0 m = 20 sq. m
  • 3rd room: 6.0 m x 3.0 m = 18 sq. m
  • Corridor: 4.0 m x 2.0 m = 8 sq. m

The total area is: 14m2 + 20m2 + 18m2 + 8m2 = 60m2

To cover, you can purchase boards in the following sizes:

  • 30 mm x 100 mm x 3000 mm, the area of ​​one board is: 0.1 m x 3 m = 0.3 m2
  • 30 mm x 100 mm x 4000 mm, the area of ​​one board is: 0.1 m x 4 m = 0.4 m2
  • 35 mm x 120 mm x 3000 mm, the area of ​​one board is: 0.12 m x 3 m = 0.36 m2

The number of floorboards required will depend on the size of the board:

  • 60 m2 : 0.3 m2 = 200 pcs.
  • 60 m2 : 0.4 m2 = 150 pcs.
  • 60 m2: 0.36 m2 = 167 pcs.

There is another way to determine the number of floorboards required. To do this, you need to divide the floor covering area by the width of the floor board and get the total number of running meters. If the total number of linear meters is divided by the length of one floor board, then we get the number of boards we need. In our case, it will look like this:

  • 60 m2: 0.1 m = 600 linear meters m
  • 600 linear meters m: 3 m = 200 pcs.
  • 600 linear meters: 4 m = 150 pcs

Sometimes the task arises to determine the required number of floor boards in cubic meters. To do this, you first need to determine the volume for each board size:

  • 0.03 m x 0.1 m x 3 m = 0.009 m3
  • 0.03 m x 0.1 m x 4 m = 0.012 m3
  • 0.035 m x 0.12 m x 3 m = 0.0126 m3

To determine the volume of purchased boards, we multiply the volume of one board by the number of these boards:

  • 0.009 m3 x 200 pcs. = 1.8 m3
  • 0.012 m3 x 150 pcs. = 1.8 m3
  • 0.0126 m3 x 167 pcs. = 2.1 m3

Thus, we have decided on the volume of the order in square or cubic meters. It’s time to move on to its monetary expression. To do this, you need to know the price of the 1st square or cubic meter. We multiply the volume of the order by its price and get the cost of the order. It would seem that everything is simple, but do not rush to conclusions. The cost of the order, as a rule, depends on its quantity. The larger the quantity, the lower its cost. In addition, our company provides its customers with various bonuses. Therefore, to find out the final cost of the order, you need to call our managers.
