## Information on the purpose of the calculator

The flooring calculator is designed to calculate the amount of materials, such as laminate, plywood and ceramic tiles, to cover the floor of the required room size. To perform the calculation, it is necessary to enter the dimensions of the room and the dimensions of the floor material, as well as other data if necessary.
To account for the indentation from the wall, it is necessary to reduce the entered dimensions of the room by the indentation value.

A drawing is also attached to the calculation to visually display the laying of the material over the entire area of the room, so that you can choose the laying method in advance, taking into account the visual style.

The proportion of waste included in the calculation depends on the method of laying. With diagonal laying, the average amount of waste is 15 percent, and with laying at right angles, only 10 percent.

The following is a complete list of calculations performed with a brief description of each item.
