# How To Use A Square Metre Calculator

How To Use A Square Metre CalculatorA square metre calculator is very simple to use. To calculate square meters, you need to know the length and width of each area (Floor plans or manual measuring can help with this). This is also referred to as the area of the shape; most commonly, it’s a simple square or rectangle, but for more advanced areas, it can be harder and different shapes.

Square metres are calculated by Length x Width
For example 1 x 1 = 1 square metre
For example 7 x 4 = 28 square metres
For example 14 x 1 = 14 Square Metres

Or you can simply email Carpet Removal Sydney your “Floor Plan” to make it easier for you. We will calculate the square metres for you, but sometimes a Floor Plan may be missing measurements (most commonly the hallways), so those may need to be manually measured, or we may need to “guess” the rough measurement of that area.
Here is an example of a floor plan sent to us with “Missing Measurements.”

## How to Calculate Square Meters

You might find yourself needing the area of a room or other space in square meters for a flooring, renovation, or landscaping project. To obtain such a measurement, you can measure the area of the space in square meters in a few simple steps. Follow along to learn how to calculate it yourself, or simply use the calculator above.

## Step One: Measure Length and Width

To calculate the area of a space, you must know its dimensions. For example, if the shape of the space is a square or rectangle, then start by measuring the length and width of the space in meters using a tape measure or other measuring tool.

If your measurements are in another unit of measure, centimetres, for example, then you can either convert them to meters first, or you can find the area in another unit and convert them to square meters. We have some simple area conversion utilities, or you can convert yourself. If your length measurements are in centimetres, then divide by 100 to get meters.

If your area measurement is in square centimetres, then divide by 10,000 to get square meters.

If your space is not a square or rectangle, you may need to use a formula to calculate the area of a different shape. Or continue reading to see how to measure the area of oddly shaped rooms.

## Step Two: Multiply Measurements Together

Once you have your measurements in meters, you can use the appropriate formula to calculate the area of the space in square meters. Continuing the example above for the square or rectangular room, now that you have a length and width measurement, you can find the area in square meters by multiplying the length and width together.

square meters = length × width

## Measuring Oddly Shaped Rooms

Often, you’ll need to measure a space that’s not a perfect rectangle. It might be easiest to try to split up oddly shaped areas into separate shapes and measure the square meters of each of them separately.

Once that is complete, add up the individually calculated areas to find the total area of the space. You’ll also find that the formula above works great for rectangular areas. For other shapes, try our area calculator.

For example, see the formula below to see how to add two individually calculated areas of a complex space together.

total square meters = area 1 + area 2

# Frequently Asked Questions

### Are Square Metres and Metres The Same Thing?

No, square meters are a two-dimensional unit of area, whereas meters are a one-dimensional unit of length.

### What Does 1 Square Metre Look Like?

One square meter is equal to a square that is 1 meter in width by 1 meter in height. For visual reference, a guitar is about 1 meter in length, so 1 square meter is approximately the area inside of a square made with guitars for edges.

### Are Square Metres and Metres The Same Thing?

You can use square meters anytime you wish to know the area of space. Square meters are typically used for flooring, landscaping, and agricultural purposes.

### How Many Square Metres Is A 10 x 10 Room?

A 10 m x 10 m room has an area of exactly 100 square meters, as shown by:
10 m × 10 m = 100 sq m

### How Many Square Metres Is A 9 x 3 Room?

A 9 m x 3 m room has an area of exactly 27 square meters, as shown by:
9 m × 3 m = 127 sq m

### What Does “Per Square Metre” Mean?

“Per square meter” is used whenever you are dividing some quantity by a total area, measured in square meters, for instance, to find a unit price. For example, if you want to resurface a 60 square meter lounge room and the total cost is \$3,000, then the price per square meter is \$50, as shown by:

\$3,000 / 60 Square Metres = \$50 per square meter
\$3,000 divided by 60 Square Metres = \$50 / Per Square Metre
