You may have noticed that some flooring retailers price their products in Broadloom metres while others price in lineal metres others square metres (m2). So what does it all mean?
Traditionally carpet was made 12 foot wide (3.66m wide) and one metre off the roll was referred to as a broadloom metre. Worldwide however carpet comes in different widths including 3.66m wide, 4.0m wide and even 5.0m wide and tiles, laminate flooring and timber flooring are always priced in m2 – Comparing pricing on products can therefore be a little difficult or confusing.
That’s why at The Flooring Room we price all our products in the simple same unit of measure – Square metres (m2) – It makes comparing products easy. Most people know how many m2 their house is and if you don’t then don’t worry – we’ll work it all out for you with a free, no pressure, no obligation assessment – you can even book one online here.
