You can use this guide to calculate the square footage and cost of a building, floor, walls, and more.

The calculation to work out the square feet of both a square and rectangular room like 40x40 is very simple. All you need to do is multiply the length by the width.

Square Feet = Length x Width
40 x 40 = 1600

This means the answer is:

40x40 room = 1600 square feet

Typing out the words square feet is quite long winded and if you deal with square feet a lot you'll mostly see it written as either sq ft or ft2.

We can write the answer above using those notation and 40x40 is 1600 ft2
