How Much Product do I Need to Cover My Wooden Floor?

There are certain variables that can affect that amount of product you might need to cover your wooden floor. It is key to look at any guidelines from suppliers and consider the type of wood your floor is made from, as some can be more porous than others.

There are certain variables that can affect that amount of product you'll need to cover your wooden floor. It's key to look at any guidelines from suppliers and consider the type of wood your floor is made from, as some can be more porous than others.

Although it’s not an exact science, the general a rule of thumb is:

  • 10m2 of flooring will use 1 litre of product (per coat applied by roller)
  • 1kg of adhesive will install 1m2 wooden flooring (this is the maximum coverage you would achieve dependent on trowel size and subfloor)

It's important to add 5 per cent extra to your calculations to allow for any typical wastage or spillage that could occur during application.

How do you measure a room?

It's also essential to correctly measure the space that you wish to cover to calculate how much product you’ll need. Unless you're a maths genius, it might seem a little overwhelming when working out how much product you’ll need. Find our easy and simple measuring guide below.

Rectangle Room

If you have a rectangular room, you can easily work out how much product you might need. All you must do is measure the length and width of the room and multiple them together.

For example, if your room is 4m wide and 8m long, the area will be 32m2.

Non-rectangle room

If your room isn’t a typical rectangular shape, like an L shaped room, then we recommend splitting the room into smaller rectangular- or square-shape sections.

Similarly to the diagram above, you would first find out the area of each small shape by multiplying the width by the length. After this, you would then add together the size of the two individual sections to give you the total area of the room.

Complex room

No matter how complicated the shape of your room, this method still works. All you need to do is split your room into as many rectangles or squares as needed and then once you have worked out the area of each shape, add them all together.

Make sure that you are writing down all your measurements as you go.
