San Rafael, Calif.—Creating Your Space and MeasureSquare have partnered to support flooring dealers and their customers with a new Measure It calculation tool.

The companies collaborated to create a custom interface leveraging MeasureSquare technology designed to simply and accurately estimate the amount of flooring material needed for a home. This tool accommodates virtually any room type, the company said, including stairs, and calculates for all major flooring types—carpet, tile, hardwood and more.

To use the tool, the consumer chooses her flooring type and room shape, enters the dimensions and submits. She is immediately provided with a quantity estimate that includes instruction to contact her flooring retailer for a final estimate. This quantity estimate can also be saved in the website workbook, a Creating Your Space proprietary feature for dealers.

The goal, the company said, is to enable the customer to get one step closer to purchasing flooring by taking one of the biggest unknowns out of the equation for the consumer—“how much flooring do I need?”
