## How many centimeters are there in a square meter?

During renovations, it is often necessary to count square meters.

You can find out how many centimeters are in a square meter using simple calculations. It is known that 1 m = 100 cm. Since sq.m. is a unit of measurement of area, then 1 m² = L x W, where L = 100 cm is the length, and W = 100 cm is the width of the meter section. Thus, 1 m² = 100 cm x 100 cm = 10,000 cm2.

## What is a linear meter

A linear meter is a unit of measurement of length, a designation used in construction and some other industries.

The use of this term is convenient and necessary:

- when measuring long products - skirting boards, platbands, rolled materials;
- when determining the length of kitchen units.

In construction, a linear meter is used to distinguish it from a square meter, which determines not the length, but the surface area (S).

### How to convert to square meters

You can only compare similar units of measurement of the same parameter. Linear meters indicate the length of the product, i.e. linear value. The plane characteristic is measured in square units.

The linear meter is a frequently used unit of measurement.

To find the surface quadrature, it is enough to know its length in linear meters and width (height). For example, the area of kitchen facades is equal to their total length in linear meters multiplied by the height of the cabinets.

## Bathroom

A glass partition with variable transparency between the bathroom and the bedroom is triplex. Between the two glasses there is a special film with crystals, to which power is supplied. In the off position, the crystals are in a chaotic position, making the glass dull and opaque, allowing only diffuse light to pass through. As soon as power is applied to the film, all the crystals take one position and the glass becomes transparent. This solution allows you to create a romantic atmosphere. Marble-effect tiles from FAP Ceramiche are used on the floor and wall behind the pendant. Premium mosaics from Mutina are used in the shower area. She has a very pleasant and aesthetic appearance. The shower podium was extended to the bathroom. This made it more convenient to enter. The bathtub itself has an increased volume and is filled using a wall-mounted mixer from Agape. Its spout has a linear stripe at the bottom and when turned on creates the illusion of a waterfall. The mixer itself, as well as the block with the hand shower, merge with the shelves from the same collection in one line. The rest of the plumbing fixtures in this room are from the manufacturer Fantini, also in matte black. A Bossini rain shower is installed in the ceiling above the shower area. It perfectly imitates raindrops falling from the sky. The ceiling shower is equipped with RGB diodes. Their light, combined with the falling drops, creates a magical atmosphere. The walls in the bath area and the ceiling are covered with decorative dark concrete-like plaster. Reinforced with matte varnish, they are not afraid of direct contact with water. The Rifra wall-hung vanity unit has a light oak veneer finish. Another interesting solution for this room is the Geberit touch flush button. To wash off the water, you don’t have to touch it, just pass your hand in front of it. It has two flush modes, long and short. The button itself can be highlighted in 5 different colors. Above the glass partition there is a profile with an LED RGB strip installed in it. Using the remote control you can set it to any color. Built-in lamps from Kreon. Above the bathtub is a lamp from Moooi. On a dark ceiling, when turned on, it echoes the stars in the sky. This bathroom will rightfully become one of the favorite rooms of the apartment owners.

## Formulas for calculating room area in square meters

The above formulas will tell you how to find out the area of the room. When determining the size of a room, mathematical calculations are used taking into account the configuration of the place.

All quantities must be expressed in the same units - in this case in square meters:

- For a rectangle: S = L x W, where L is the length, W is the width of the room.
- For a circle: S = πr², where the symbol is π = 3.14, and r is its radius.
- For a trapezoid: S = (a + b) * h / 2, where a, b are the small and large bases, h is the shortest distance between them.
- For a triangle: S = (a * h) / 2, where a is the largest side, h is the height, i.e. the minimum distance from the opposite corner of the room to the measured line.
- For an oval: S = π * a * b, where a, b are the lengths of the major and minor semi-axes of the ellipse, π = 3.14.

The area of the room can be calculated using formulas.

## Layout

The construction of a large cottage with a surface area of 350 m2 implies high-quality arrangement of the internal space. The layout provides for the following premises:

- vestibule;
- hall;
- kitchen-dining room;
- bedrooms;
- children's;
- living room;
- cabinet;
- library;
- 2 bathrooms;
- furnace;
- pantries.

Communication between floors is carried out via stairs. The living room is usually equipped with a fireplace. The space of a separate room can be increased due to a bay window, partially or fully glazed. In two-story houses it is designed on a specific floor or rises along the entire height of the house, decorating the facade. Issues of room planning, their design, selection of interior elements and furniture should always be agreed upon with our specialists, then the result will exceed all expectations and you will get exactly the **house you dreamed of** !

## How to calculate the area of rooms of different shapes

To find out how to calculate the floor area, you need to measure the dimensions of the room. The required parameters depend on its configuration. It is important to take the measurements correctly.

The dimensions of the room or its individual parts may differ from those indicated in the drawings, because schematic images do not take into account the thickness of finishing materials - plaster, linoleum, etc. Small displacements of the walls and ceiling from the vertical and horizontal axes are also not taken into account.

To know how to calculate the area of a room, you need to determine its configuration.

To measure, you can use a tape measure or a laser rangefinder. The latter is more accurate, but not always possible. Using a laser device, you can only measure a flat surface. If there are protrusions or other irregularities along the measurement path, it is better to use a metal tape measure.

When performing linear measurements, you cannot use wooden, plastic or other soft tools, because over time it dries out and warps.

### Rectangular

The easiest way to calculate the area of a rectangular room. To do this, measure the length and width of the surface in square meters, and then multiply the resulting values. With vertical walls and their same height, the dimensions of the floor and ceiling are the same. Otherwise, you will have to calculate the size of each section separately.

The length and width of a rectangular room are easy to calculate.

### Trapezoidal

The area of a trapezoidal room can be easily calculated by conditionally highlighting its central part, which is a rectangle, and 2 triangular sections adjacent to its sides. For calculations, use the formulas given earlier.

The easiest way to find out the quadrature of a trapezoidal room of the correct shape is when the triangular parts are the same.

### Round room

To determine the footage of a round room, find its widest part. Dividing this segment in half, it is easy to find the center of the circle - its diameter. 1/2 of this value is the radius. Using the above formula to determine the area of a circle, you can calculate the square footage of the entire room.

### Irregularly shaped room

To find the size of an irregularly shaped room, you need to conditionally divide it into sections of simple geometric shapes - rectangles, triangles, etc. Their size can be easily calculated using the given formulas.

An irregularly shaped room is divided into sections of simple shapes.

In this case, it is better to make a drawing of the room, measuring all the necessary parameters.

### Triangular

The size of the triangular section is determined by measuring one of its sides and height, i.e. the size of a line drawn to it from the opposite corner at a right angle, as shown in the figure:

Next, using the formula, you can find out the size of the triangle.

## Kitchen-living room

The main kitchen-living room is a large, bright space that combines a kitchen area, a living room and a separate dining area. The color palette used is a combination of wood, light and dark tones. Kitchen from the Italian factory Alta Cucine with stone-colored graphite facades and light oak veneer facades. The countertop and splashback are made of dark Dekton quartz ceramics. This material has aesthetic beauty, high resistance to stains, scratches, moisture and heat. The premium German Gaggenau kitchen appliances used are thought out to the smallest detail, which gives them the right to be a functional art object in the kitchen. Since the dining area is located separately, for convenience, the kitchen has a wide bar counter with Colandero half-bar stools from Kristalia overlooking a large corner window and a fireplace area with a TV. Air circulation in the rooms is ensured by the Komfovent ventilation unit of impressive size. The ceiling height of 3600 made it possible to hide it in a box above the kitchen area. The box itself was decorated with a slatted panel. Behind the bar counter, a living area begins, equipped with a Formerin corner sofa, an Alivar coffee table and a Tonon armchair with a footrest. The TV was suspended on a box with a fireplace, which was also lined with slatted panels, and FMG Maxfine Deep porcelain tiles were used in the lower part of the box to ensure fire safety. It was placed on the floor to the left of the fireplace in front of the panoramic glazing with a sliding window. This allows you to enter the room from the terrace without worrying about the safety of the natural parquet board. On the right side of the fireplace box, the slatted panel joins with a large shelving unit made of the same material as the panel slats, this adds integrity to the composition. The dining area was organized near two panoramic windows leading to terraces overlooking the bay. This is a good place for a table from Bontempi to spend quality time with your family. The highlight of the room is the chic Moooi Heracleum Small Big O chandelier above the dining table. Her plant image brings closer and emphasizes the stylistic idea of the interior. On the right side of the dining area there is an elevator to the floor below. The elevator shaft and cabin are made of impact-resistant glass. To the left and right of the elevator, slatted wall panels are fixed to the walls; one of them conceals the entrance to another area of the apartment. The room lighting system allows you to highlight the desired areas locally and illuminate the entire space. Overhead and built-in light from the Belgian manufacturer Kreon of simple, straight shapes fit perfectly into the design concept without overloading it. The walls are covered with decorative light gray Marmorino plaster. This is a fairly durable coating, just suitable for walk-through areas.

## How to calculate the square footage of a room

The area of all the walls of the room is determined by summing up their sizes. This is often necessary when purchasing wallpaper or other finishing materials.

Irregularities and bends of the surface can lead to inaccuracies in measurements. Therefore, it is better to first check the verticality of the walls using a building level. If it is not exactly maintained, it is better to measure the height and width in several places - below and above - or taking into account curvatures.

When calculating the finishing area, you need to take into account openings: windows, doors, niches, arches. This can be done in 2 ways.

The first one:

- Measure the length and width of the openings and calculate their quadrature by multiplying these values, expressed in linear meters.
- Calculate the size of the walls excluding windows and doors.
- Subtract the size of the openings from the total area.

The square footage of a room is calculated using the area of the walls.

Second way:

- Calculate the size of each of the sections located in different planes or between openings.
- Summarize the results obtained.
- Add to them the quadrature of the areas located above the windows or doors.

Also, when calculating the area of the walls, niches for radiators, doors, etc. are taken into account. You also need to think about the electrical wiring, because when laying the box and other nuances, finishing may not be required.

## Bedroom

The main bedroom is designed with contrasting colors and textures. The walls are covered with light gray suede decorative paint. It has a texture that is pleasant to the touch, reminiscent of suede. On the wall behind the head of the bed there is an MDF slatted wall panel covered with dark veneer. The bed with a lifting mechanism from the Italian factory Novamobili is made of premium gray fabric. Bedside tables and console in wood-colored veneer, chest of drawers in enamel. The console chair from Kristalia has felt upholstery, which also adds warmth and coziness to the bedroom. The main light sources in the room are also lamps from the manufacturer Kreon. The wall to the right of the bed is made of glass with variable transparency and separates the bedroom from the bathroom. It will be discussed below.
