Most people in the construction industry are familiar with surface areas because it guides them when building.
Even though most countries use meters and centimeters to take measurements, the square foot is commonly used everywhere. 200 square feet, when converted to square meters, is 18.5.
Not many people can name things that have 200 square foot area, and by the time you are done reading this, you will be better than them.
1. Outdoor rug
Outdoor rugs work similarly to indoor carpets. They pull your outdoor space together into an inviting and comfortable space. They allow people to personalize their décor in the yards.
Outdoor rugs can be cut into different sizes to cover the floor area. The average market size is around 200 square feet. Some look like tiles, while some look like grass.
2. Fashion runway
A standard fashion runway should be around 4 feet wide, and the length should be 2/3 that of the room.

One carpet has an area of 20 feet, meaning if you have four of them, you can cover around 200 square feet of floor space.
4. Hotel room
The average surface area of a traditional hotel room is roughly 330 square feet. However, most hotels tend to balance their room sizes between 300 and 400ft².
On the other hand, micro hotels have rooms smaller or half the standard size. The average square footage of space in a micro-hotel is around 200.
5. VIP Red carpet
The red carpet is always associated with status because it is always reserved for celebrities during an event. They usually gather here for pictures, interviews, and fashion shows before taking their seats.
Red carpets have varying dimensions, the average being around 5 by 40 feet. You can calculate the area to get an area of 200 square feet.

9. Wrapping paper
Wrapping papers come in standard sizes to allow the wrapping of large-size gifts. Wrapping paper sometimes is bought in a roll, with each measuring 2 feet by 10 feet.
When you calculate the surface area of the entire roll, you will get measurements of 200 square feet. Maybe next time you are shopping for wrapping paper, you will know how much surface area you can cover.
10. Small cabin
Building a cabin in the woods does not have to cost a lot. It takes a few pieces of timber to get a structure ready.

12. 7 beds
When calculating the size of beddings, a full mattress is 75 by 54 inches, giving a surface area of 4,050 square inches.

13. A Long Table runner
Table runners should be placed over the table and hang around six inches off the table but not further from the tablecloth. For example, a 60-inch table can have a 72-inch table runner with a 6-inch allowance on either side.
More extended dining tables have over 200 feet and 12 inches wide runners. Calculating the surface area will give you a surface area of 200 square feet.
14. 2 “Big blankets”
If you think about a bigger blanket than a king-size blanket, you should consider the big blanket with a surface area of 100ft². When you combine these to blankets to have one, you will end up with an area of 200 square feet.
The dimension of stuff has been an interest of mine ever since I was a child. What I believe is most fascinating about the dimension of stuff is how extremely long, tall and wide some objects are both on earth and in the universe.
