    Hi, do you guys measure from skirting to doorway, or from skirting to skirting when measuring the length of a room before tiling?

    Erm, just measure width x length and calculate extra required for cuts etc

    Doesn't really matter when talking about millimetres as you are going to round up for extra anyway, you always add on extra for breakages etc

    If I'am doing the walls skirting has to come off.
    If I'am doing the floor skirting has to come off.
