How Do You Compute the Square-Footage of a Kitchen?

Many home-improvement renovation or jobs need you to understand the square footage of the the area where you’re working. Computing the square-footage of a kitchen is an operation that is simple. It’s most easy when the kitchen is a square- or rectangular-shaped room. It becomes somewhat harder when it’s irregular contours, or when the kitchen has eating and storage nooks or alternative architectural characteristics. A steel tape measure is best suited as it stays stiff, allowing measures to be taken by you alone for measuring across extended distances.

Prolong the tape measure and report the the length from wall to the wall.

Go to the other wall to an adjoining wall, and measure and report the the length.

Multiply both of these numbers (measurements) to get the square-footage.

Assess the length and breadth of every bay, alcove or off-set, if any, and multiply their square-footage to be found by them. As an example, a 4-foot by 3-foot bay comes with an area of 12 sq. ft.

Add the square-footage of every bay, alcove or counterbalance to your own first computation to find out the square footage of the whole kitchen.
