Simply enter the information you do know (like room width, length, ceiling height) into the Quick Calculator below.

Plus, at the same time, you can see what the total perimeter for the room is and the square yards of flooring.

This is an amazing (and FREE) tool for estimating sizes and spaces for virtually any project you might be undertaking!
