# How To Determine Square Feet

Many times homeowners will need to determine square footage of an item in their home. If you want to learn how to determine square feet then you have come to the right place.

As a NJ Home Improvement Contractor serving Bergen County New Jersey, having to calculate square footage happens daily for me. As routine as it is, I find that many people don’t know how to determine square feet.

Using the square footage can help you calculate things like, how much wall paint you need, the size of an area carpet that is needed or even it can help you determine the square footage of that paving stone area out back that you want to order. For larger home projects, you can use the square footage calculations to determineĀ  the amount of extra attic insulation, siding cleaners or even use it to determine the amount of sod you need for the lawn replacement project.

Let’s learn how to determine square feet:

Learning how to determine square feet is actually very simple. Let’s assume that we are working with an area that is square or rectangular in shape. Making this example as easy as possible we will assume that each of the 4 walls in our example are 10′ long. So if we are trying to calculate the size of a new rug for this 10′ x 10′ room then if we multiply the length by the width then the actual square footage is 100 square feet. so when you go to order the rug, you will want to make sure that you are ordering at least 100 square feet of carpeting.
