Square Meters vs. Square Feet

Square meters and square feet are both measurements of area. The square meter is a worldwide accepted unit from the metric system or International System of Units (SI.) Square feet comes from the Imperial or United States Customary systems. The use of square feet is common in the United States and the United Kingdom.

One square meter is over ten times as large as one square foot.

How to Calculate the Square Meters of a Room

To calculate the square meters of a room, use a tape measure to find the length and width of the space in meters. Then multiply the length by the width to determine the area. For example, if your room is 3.5 meters long and 3 meters wide, you’ll multiply 3.5 x 3 for an area of 10.5 square meters.

If your room is an odd shape, like an “L” or “T,”  break up the room into even rectangles. Then, measure each rectangle individually and calculate the square meters. When you’ve done this for each segment, add the square meters together for the total area of the room.

What is the Difference Between Square Meters and Meters Squared?

While they sound similar, there is a difference between square meters and meters squared. For example, if you say a room in your home is 10 square meters, it describes the total area. But, some people will interpret 10 meters squared as 10x10m² or 100 square meters.
