# How To Calculate Space & Area Of An Apartment

## Space of an apartment

Space Area is defined as the area inside the frame of a polygon with two dimensions, such as square, triangle, trapezoid, rectangle, circle, parallelogram, and other shapes. The area of any shape can be calculated by counting or using laws and formulas for each geometric figure.

However, the area of the apartments can be defined as the area in a building that can be measured. This is from the boundaries of the outer wall to all that it contains from the inside including all the internal wall partitions.

**Area of an apartment**

Knowing the areas of apartments is very important. Most especially when buying and selling real estate. Therefore, when a person wants to buy an apartment they must know how to calculate the area. This is because it is also related to their price too. So, the price of an apartment with 400 square feet is different from one of 4000 square feet.

To find an apartment space is the area of each room account separately, if a square or rectangular room was a standard bar is bringing an appropriate, measured through which the room length and width, and then calculates the quotient hit

Length in width. For example, if the length of a room after measuring it with the standard tape is 20 meters, and its width is 13 meters, then its area is equal to the product of 13 times 20, i.e. (13 x 20 = 260 square meters). In this case, it is considered very easy to measure the area of a single room. As for finding the area of an entire apartment that contains more than one room and more than one geometric shape, the matter may become more difficult. When calculating the area of each part within it, the area of each room is calculated according to Unit and all areas are calculated to find the total area, including the kitchen, corridors, living rooms, toilets, and other facilities, and if there is a circular kitchen or a room in the shape of a triangle in the apartment, there is no need for confusion, all that must be done is to calculate the area of each of them according to the laws Geometric shapes (the law of the area of a circle , the area of a triangle, the area of a trapezoid, etc.).

**The area of the built-up area**

**Floor area**

The floor area of the apartment is defined as the place that can be covered with tiles or carpets, and this means that the interior walls are exempt from that, and the floor area of the apartment does not include common places such as elevators, stairs, and the playground, etc. Carpets are the actual used area of the apartment, and it is usually approximately 70 percent of the built-up area of the apartment.

**Built up space**

The built-up area is defined as the place that includes the floors and walls, including the internal walls, accounting for 20 percent of the building. Usage is 70 percent, and for example if the built-up area is 1200 square meters, then this means that 30 percent of the building is not actually used, or 360 square meters, so the actual area that is used is only 840 square meters.

**Area laws of some geometric shapes**

To find the area of an apartment, as mentioned previously, the area of the formed shape for each room is calculated, as it is necessary to know the space laws of some of the most famous geometric shapes, including the following:

**Area of a trapezoid**

Area of a trapezoid = 0.5 (sum of the two bases x height).

**Example:** A bathroom in the form of a trapezoid, in which the length of the first base = 3 m, the length of the second base = 4 m, and its height = 5 m, so find its area.

**The solution:** Law of trapezoidal area = 0.5 x (sum of the lengths of the two bases) x height.

Area of a trapezoid = 5 x (3 + 4) x 0.5, Area of a trapezoid = 5 x 7 x 0.5, Area of a trapezoid = 35 x 0.5

So: Bathroom area = 17.5 m².

**Area of a square**

Area of a square = (side length) ².

**Example:** Calculate the area of a square-shaped room with a side length of 6 m

**The solution:** Area of a square = (side length) ².

Square area = (6) ².

Square shaped room area = 36 m².

**Area of a rectangle**

Area of a rectangle = Length x Width.

**Example:** Calculate the area of a rectangular corridor, if you know that its length equals 7 meters, and its width equals 2 meters.

**The solution: **Law of Area of Rectangle = (Length x Width), value of length = 7 m, width = 2 m, is substituted in the formula.

Corridor area = (7 x 2)

**So the corridor area = 14 m².**

**Area of a diamond**

Area of the diamond = height x side length.

**Example:** Calculate the floor area of a living room of a rhombus, if you know that its height is equal to 6 m, and the length of one of its sides is 2 m.

**The solution:** The formula for area of a rhombus = height x side length. Area of diamond = 6 mx 2 m.

So, the floor area of the living room = 12 m².

**Area of a triangle**

Area of triangle = 0.5 x base x height. [9]

**Example 1: **A kitchen has a triangular floor. If you know that its height is equal to 10 meters, and the length of the base is equal to 5 meters, find the area of its floor.

**The solution:** Area of a triangle = (1/2) base length x height.

Area of a triangle = (1/2) 10 x 5.

Area of triangle = 5 x 5.

So, kitchen floor area = 25 m².

**Example 2:** An apartment consisting of a bedroom, a living room, a bathroom, and a kitchen. If you know that the owner of the apartment wants to change the colour of the tiles in the living room and bedroom, find the necessary tile area, noting that: The bedroom is rectangular in shape and its dimensions are: 7 m, 3 m, and The living room is square in shape and one of its sides is 4 m long.

**The solution:**

Bedroom area = length x width.

Area of bedroom = 7 x 3.

Bedroom size = 21 m².

So the area of the tiles needed for the bedroom = 21 square meters.

Living room area = (side length) ², Living room area = 4 x 4, Living room area = 16 m².

So the area of the tiles needed for the living room = 16 square meters Tile area = 16 + 21 = 37 m².
