A square foot or sq ft is an imperial unit of area that is widely used in the United States, Canada and also China and the United Kingdom. Its symbol is a simple square with a vertical line bisecting it, commonly used in many branches like architecture, real estate, and interior space plans. It may also be occasionally written as a square with a slash through it. Its abbreviation is commonly written as sqft or sq ft.

Once again we tackle a widespread issue that, despite the complications which might arise in real life, has some rather simple maths beneath it. The calculations of square footage pricing are, mathematically, the simple division of the price of a specific property by its total square footage. In everyday life, this value changes significantly.

Let’s now see how to calculate square footage when you already know the area in different units. This is the **most simple usage of the square footage calculator**. To use this conversion feature, you could use the area conversion tool on this website or simply follow the next steps:

- In the square footage calculator find the Area tab and select units you want to convert from,
- You can now enter the value of the area in those units,
- Click again on the unit switcher and select square feet (sq ft),
- Automatically, the calculator will show the value in sq ft.

For example, we might want to know how big a 100 m2 (sqm) expressed in sq ft. In other words, we would want to convert from sq m to sq ft and find out the square footage of that house, which is:

- 1 acre * 43 560 sq ft/acre = 43 560 sq ft
- 30 sq in * 0.00694 sq ft/sqin = 0.208333 sq ft

Once again we tackle a widespread issue that, despite the complications which might arise in real life, has some rather simple maths beneath it. The calculations of square footage pricing are, mathematically, the simple division of the price of a specific property by its total square footage. In everyday life, this value changes significantly depending on such factors as a location of the property, intended or potential use, and so on. It is nonetheless a useful quantity to evaluate the value of a particular house or property.

Before we talk a bit more about the usefulness of this measurement, let’s take a look at how we can use this calculator when the square footage pricing comes into play.

Not all rooms are perfect squares or rectangles, and it becomes more tricky to calculate square footage in such a situation. If the room is almost rectangular, one can get a pretty good approximation just by considering it as a rectangular and performing a similar calculation as we have seen before. But when the shape of the room (or whatever you want to measure) is far from rectangular, we definitely recommend using the corresponding Omni calculator for that shape,e.g., it could be a triangle area calculator, the area of a circle calculator, or any other shape.

It is also possible to convert in the other direction with applying this method, i.e. from a different unit, like square meters to square feet. We will now show some examples of conversions from and to square footage.
