What is the Linear Footage for this..

Hi fellows,

I am trying to get some cabinets for my kitchen... the place is pretty small 11' x 6' what will be the linear footage of the place, secondly, is the window area calculated as part of this footage.

Thank you

Konboy, linage footage is the total lenght of something such as a board, Sq footage is total area of something, in your case a wall. For linage footage add up the total lenghts of each wall, to figure the sq. footage muiltply lenght x width of each wall and add them together, this gives your total sq footage of your space, Now measusre your windows lenght x width to get sq. footage and take that away from total sq. footage.

If your trying to calculate the cost based on the linear foot prices posted in the kitchen places, forget about it. It's like the miles per gallon signs on the new cars.
