Calculate using Borders:
Distance off the wall:
Use default waste factor 10% for simple installations. We recommend changing it to 15-20% waste factor when installing in diagonal direction or room has many protrusions and turns. All calculated quantities will include extra quantity using the selected waste.
If your project includes borders - check the checkbox above to calculate all the elements of the floor. Typical distance of the border from the wall is one foot, but can be adjusted during the installation to fit the border pattern properly. Border length is rounded to the closest 3 feet increment.
