Some areas will not be carpeted. For example, underneath kitchen units or in the bathroom. These will contribute to the floor area but not the carpet area.

On the other hand, the risers of steps may well be carpeted but will not contribute to the floor area.

What is the difference between living area and floor area?

Floor area is always larger than the living area. Floor area can include an unfinished basement, the garage, an outside foyer, closet space etc. Living area is much smaller than the floor area. It is usually the heated/cooled area in the house. Real estate agents will usually quote the floor area because the buyer will think he/she is getting more space for his/her money. When asked they will have to quote the living area. Even though the unheated/uncooled fllor area contributes to the aesthetic value of the house, some of it may not be useful to the buyer. It depends on the buyer's preference.

Can carpet be put down on an uneven floor?
