How to calculate square meters correctly

You don’t need much to calculate square meters. A folding rule and a calculator are all you need.

  • First measure the desired area. To calculate the square meters of a room, measure the length and then the width.
  • If the room is 4.5 meters wide and 10 meters long, all you have to do is multiply the two figures together. The result is 4.5 x 10 = 45 square meters.
  • If the area is not completely rectangular, for example because a piece of wall protrudes into the room, you need to use a little trick. Divide the room into rectangular parts and calculate the square meters separately.
