## What is a square meter?

**A square meter is a measurement used to calculate area. It is standard in many countries around the world**. A square meter is a square with each side measuring one meter. This measurement helps to determine the size of the area of homes, gardens, and even fields. The unit for a square meter usually looks like this: **m2** or **m²**.

For example, if you’re buying carpet or planning a garden, knowing the square meter of the area tells you exactly how much material you’ll need.

**Have you ever wondered how big a square meter is?** One square meter is about the same size as a large beach towel! So, next time you think of a square meter, picture that towel spread out on your floor, or use our m2 calculator.

## How to measure square meters

**It is quite easy to find the square meter of a square or rectangular space.**

First, you need to measure the length and width of the area in meters. For example, if you’re measuring a room, use a tape measure to determine how long and wide it is. Then, multiply these two numbers together.

For instance, if your room is *4* meters long and *3* meters wide, it would be *12* square meters. A square meter calculator can make this easier by doing the math for you.

🙋 **If you’re curious about how many square feet are in a square meter, the answer is approximately 10.76**. This can be useful when comparing different units of measurement.

### How many square meters are in a foot?

**One square foot is approximately 0.093 m²**. To convert from square foot to square meter, multiply the square foot by 0.093 or use an online calculator/converter.

### How do I calculate the square meters for different shapes?

**To calculate square meters for different shapes, you will need to use the specific area formula for each shape**. Here are some examples:

**Rectangle**— Multiply the**length**by the**width**;**Circle**— Use the formula**π × radius²**; and**Octagon**— Use the formula**2 × (1 + √2) × side length²**.

Our calculator simplifies these calculations for you!

### What is the area of a 5 m by 2 m garden?

**The area of a 5 m by 2 m garden is 10 square meters**. To calculate this, you need to multiply the length by the width of the garden. In this case, multiplying 5 meters by 2 meters gives you 10 square meters.

### How do I measure the square meter of a rectangular room?

**To measure the square meter of a rectangular room**:

- Measure the length of the room in meters.
- Measure the width of the room in meters.
- Multiply the length by the width.
- The result is the dimension of the room in square meters.

For example, if your room is *4* meters long and *3* meters wide, the area is:

**4 × 3 = 12 m²**
