Room Measuring Guide things to consider:

  • Measuring into any drop back and doorway.
  • Make sure the tape measure is touching the wall at both ends.

Vinyl Measuring Guide things to consider: 

  • Measure into any drop back or doorway
  • If measuring a kitchen keep in mind that in most cases flooring needs to run under any fridge/freezer, washing machine, cooker etc. If you can’t measure to the back of these on the floor measure the top of them and add it on to the floor measurement.

  • Take all measurements as Nett sizes, don’t add anything on.
  • Winders (kite shape stairs) are tricky to measure. If you have them, contact us for advice on how to measure them.
