    1. Calculate the size of your space

    To calculate your outdoor area, multiply the length by the width. For example, width 3 m × 5 m = 15 m2. Calculate any areas to be subtracted from the total area, like pillars or corners. For example, corner width 0.5 m × length 1.0 m = 0.5 m². The correct subtracted area is then: 15 m² – 0.5 m² = 14.5 m².

      2. Calculate how many packages you need

      Divide the sum by 0.81 and round up (to ensure enough floor decking). For example, 14.5 m2 ÷ 0.81 = 17.90. Rounded up, that means you need 18 packages.

        Get going with ready-made calculations

        When you have your total area of space, these calculations tell you how many flooring packages are needed to cover it.

        The most common examples:

        2 m2 needs 3 packages

        5 m2 needs 7 packages

        7 m2 needs 9 packages

        10m2 needs 13 packages

        12m2 needs 15 packages

        18m2 needs 23 packages

        20m2 needs 25 packages

        25m2 needs 31 packages

        30m2 needs 37 packages
