How to calculate the floor area？
Step 1: Understanding your floor space
You can take your own measurement for the floor area.
For multiple corner floor space, measure their farthest point for the length and width.
Step 2: Calculate your floor area
Example: 3.85m (Width) X 12m (Length) = 46.2 square meter
Add 10% Wastage for the total floor area.
10% Wastage is needed for cutting wastage of the materials.
Example: 46.2 (floor area) X 1.10 (10% Wastage) = 50.82 square meter
Step 3: How many boxes do I need to purchase?
You need to divide the floor area by each box. Example each box cover 1.77 square meter.
50.82 divide by 1.77 = 28.72
So total you need to purchase 29 Boxes。
If each box cost $55.00 then 29 boxes X $55.00 = $1595.00 (Total cost for 29 boxes, supply materials only)
