AC­CU­RATE mea­sur­ing is vi­tal for all sorts of DIY tasks, but it’s sur­pris­ingly easy to get wrong.

If you can, get some­one to help you mea­sure or check your mea­sure­ments, es­pe­cially if you’re mea­sur­ing a large area or can’t af­ford to make a mis­take.

Dig­i­tal mea­sur­ers can’t be used to mea­sure ev­ery­thing, but they make a lot of mea­sur­ing quick and easy.

With a dig­i­tal mea­surer, you sim­ply point the laser dot where you want to mea­sure (en­sur­ing you know which end of the mea­surer the read­ing is be­ing taken from) and press the but­ton to ‘fix’ the read­ing, which is ex­tremely ac­cu­rate.
