Are you putting in some new flooring and curious about where to begin?  You can easily determine how much flooring and the cost by using these simple steps.

Flooring is sold by the square foot or square yard it is important to know how large the area is that you want to cover is the first step.  It can be difficult to measure rooms that have odd angles.
