Thanks. So one pack of 2.5m squared flooring will cover an area of flooring by 250cm by 100cm?

I would call it 2m squared, so 200cm by 100cm. That way you won't run out. Depends on room size though. Also if you are doing it yourself, you might **** up some boards, depending on the cut.

Gas or electricity meters ?

so this pack will fit a square room 1.58m by 1.58m

2.5m² = Area of 2.5 square metres = 1.58m x 1.58m (a square with 1.58m sides)

2.5m squared however can be read as a square with 2.5m sides. Hence an area of 6.25 square metres...

The wording is confusing people. However if the flooring says 2.5m² then it covers an area of 2.5 square metres (250x100cm, 158x158cm etc) and not an area of 2.5m x 2.5m which would be an area of 6.25m²

2.5 square meters is different, and presumably has nothing to do with your query.

As the OP's tile is "Help with 2.5 Square Metres" and that is how the coverage of laminate flooring is usually specified (i.e. in square metres), I suspect that it is everything to do with the OP's query and that the OP's mention of "2.5m squared " is erroneous.

Product details:

Coverage 2.5m²

Length 1.28m

Width 195mm

Pack quantity 10

Area of 1 plank = 1.28x0.195m = 0.25m²

Plank quantity = 10

Hence coverage = 2.5m²

What Susannah says above is correct if reading from the title of your post.

The "2.5m squared" part is what's confusing people though as I said earlier.

The product description will provide dimensions of the planks if you get confused.

If the correct question is not asked, what chance have we with answers. However the op's question was asked and answered

to get m2 all you do is time the

length of the room x width

length (m) x width (m) = area (m2)

Metres, not " meters ". (_;)
