# Square Meters to Square Feet Converter

Use this converter to easily convert between Square Meters and Square Feet (m^{2} to sq ft).

## How many Square Feet equal one Square Meter?

Approximately **10.76364864 square feet equal one square meter**, since a foot is defined as 0.3048 of a meter according to an international treaty signed in 1959 and a sq ft in sq m is then simply 0.3048 squared. This is the definition according to the International System of Units (SI) and the ISO standards on quantities and units ^{[1][2]}. The symbol for square meter is "m^{2}", sometimes written as "sq m", while the symbol for square foot is "ft^{2}", often written as "sq ft".

## Difference between Meters and Feet

Meters and feet are measurements of length, of slightly different magnitude. They are often used when the dimensions of a larger object need to be expressed, as well as to measure small distances, such as the length of a house yard or garden.

The meter is a modern metric, initially defined as the length of a particular metal alloy bar (the "Standard"), but was later redefined as the distance light travels in a vacuum in 1/299,792,458 seconds. This precise definition, alongside the ease of use and its wide recognition is what makes it the preferred unit of length in science, engineering, architecture, etc. It is used in most countries in the world as an official unit of length.

The foot is a unit with a long history, dating to at least the time of the Roman Empire. It corresponded to a different distance depending on the location and time period in question, as it was often defined as the average length of a random sample of people in a given geographical area. It is now fixed to the length of the meter.

## How to convert Square Meters to Square Feet

To convert an area measurement from sq m to sq ft, divide the measurement in m^{2} by 0.3048^{2} to arrive at its equivalent in square feet. Usually the calculation is performed with the help of a calculator.
