    There are several calculator plugins available for wordpress, one of those might work for you - WPcalc looks promising. Otherwise, what language(s) do you program in? I know php best (and it's wordpress friendly), so I would start out googling 'php calculator', and if I didn't find anything I could work with, I would move on to googling 'javascript calculator'.

    Gravity Forms can do various calculations. It could certainly handle room quantity & furniture volume. Not sure about the rest, although it does have a ton of add ons.

    Volume of furniture?

    As for a tool that does this, Jotform is one that comes to mind. It's going to take some work to get it configured just right, but I like what they've done with their form design tool when it comes to adding calculation capabilities to nearly everything. And it has a distance between two places widget too.

    Last year, I was also looking for a way to make a calculator for Wordpress, but only some tools for creating forms came across. And in them it was very difficult to make calculations for the formulas I needed. Then I found the plug-in wordpress.org/plugins/ucalc, which is special for calculators, and as a result I was able to create a calculator without any problems. I think that if someone wants to create a furniture calculator, then this plugin is fine. At least, he definitely helped me, although I made a calculator for a construction company, but the principle of constructing a calculator for other areas is identical.
