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.
FLOOR TILES CALCULATOR
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
= 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.
= 49 ft × 0.33 ft
= 16.17 Sq.ft
= 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,
= (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.
