Tiles Calculator

Tiles Calculator – How do you Calculate the Number of Floor Tiles you Need?  Normally, We calculate the tile flooring area in order to find the required number of the tiles for a given room. Assuming that situation, we have explained this post with an example.



QUESTION in Facebook Group
The areas of floors of three rooms are 184 sqft 212 sqft 232 sq ft. find the maximum size of the tiles to get the flooring covered with an exact number of tiles.

Put Above Details in Tool Given just before the Question to find the Total Number of Required Floor Tiles.

Tile Flooring Calculation in Square Foot

To determine the number of tiles required for the given floor,

Note: Door Size = 7 ft × 3 ft


Tile Flooring Drawing (14 ft X 12 ft)

STEP 1 For Tile Flooring Calculation

First, multiply the length and breadth of that room to get the area, where you need tile laying

Total Room Floor Area = Length of the room × Breadth of the room

= 14 ft × 12 ft

= 168 sq.ft

STEP 2 For Tile Flooring Calculation

Second, calculate the perimeter of the room, to find skirting tiles requirement,

From the above image (Fig. A), we can find the perimeter as

Perimeter of the room = ( 12 ft + 14 ft + 12 ft + 14 ft ) – Door Width

= 52 ft – 3 ft

= 49 ft

We have assumed 4 inches as skirting tiles height.

Skirting Tiles area = Perimeter of the room × Skirting Tile height

= 49 ft × 0.33 ft

= 16.17 Sq.ft

Total Area to be laid = Total Floor Area + Skirting Tiles area

= 168 Sq.ft + 16.17 Sq.ft

Total Area to be laid = 184.17 Sq.ft

STEP 3 For Tile Flooring Calculation

Third, calculate the area of one tile that we are planning to lay on that floor, Here We are going to use 12“ X 9” inch (or 12 inch X 9 inch) tiles,
Area of one tile = 12” × 9”

= 1 × 0.75

= 0.75 Sq.ft (approx)

STEP 4 For Tile Flooring Calculation

Finally, the total number of tiles required to order for the above room is,

Number of Tiles required = (Total Area to be laid / Area of one tile) X Wastage*

= (184.17 Sq.ft / 0.75 Sq.ft) × 5%

= 245.56 + 12.278 tiles

Number of Tiles required = 257.868 = 258 tiles (Approx)

*Wastage – Rendered wastage & damaged tiles

Therefore, we need 258 tiles, for the above room of Size 14 x 12 Sq Ft.
