How to Calculate Square Footage

    1.) Measure- Measure the sides of your area

     2.) Convert all of your measurements to feet

                        If you measured in feet skip to "Calculate the Area as Square Footage"
                        If you measured in feet & inches, divide inches by 12 and add that to your feet measure to get total feet
                        If you measured in another unit of measure, do the following to convert to feet
                                       - inches: divide by 12 and that is your measurement in feet
                                       - yards: multiply by 3 and that is your measurement in feet
                                       - centimeters: multiply by 0.03281 to convert to feet
                                       - meters: multiply by 3.281 to convert to feet

     3.) Calculate the Area as Square Footage

                                       If you are measuring a square or rectangle area, multiply length times width; Length x Width = Area.
                                       For other area shapes, see formulas below to calculate Area (ft2) = Square Footage.

    4.) Convert among square inch, square foot, square yard and square meter

                                       You could, for example, perform all of your measurements in inches or centimeters, calculate area in

                                       square inches or square centimeters then convert your final answer to the unit you need such as square feet or

                                       square meters.


     To convert among square feet, yards and meters use the following conversion factors.  For other units use our calculator for area conversions.
