**How many tiles Do I Need**? | How Many Tiles Do I Need?

First, we will **calculate** the number of tiles **needed **for a floor in an **sq. m unit. **(Unit of **measurement **is sq. m.). **You **can also use the **above tile calculator.**

**Step- 1 Measure Area of Room or Floor**

Take the **length **and **width measurements **of your room in the **meter unit**.

- Suppose,
**Length**of the room floor is 10m and the**Width**of the**room floor**is 8m. - It is a
**10m x 8m Room.**

**Step – 2 Calculate the Area of the Room or Floor**

**The area can be calculated by just multiplying the length and width of the floor together.****So, Area = Length x Width = 10m x 8m = 80 sq. m.**

**Step – 3 Measure the Size of Tiles**

**Take measurements of tile selected or propose to be installed in a given flooring area.**

Let’s take size of tile is 0.30 m x 0.30 m (30cm x 30cm)

**Step – 4 Calculate the Area of the Tile**

- The
**tile’s area**can be**calculated**by just multiplying its**length and****width**together. **Area of Tile = 0.60 m x 0.60 m = 0.36 sq. m.**

**Step – 5 Calculate the Numbers of Tiles Needed For a Floor**

- Nos. of tiles
**required**for a given floor area is**calculated**by diving the**area**of floor by area of**one tile.** - Nos. of Tiles = Area of Floor / Area of One Tile

=** 80 / 0.36 = 222 Nos.**

**Note:**There are always**chances**of wastage because sometimes**cutting**is required in many areas. So,**always**consider at least**5 % wastage,**while calculating the**number**of tiles**needed**for a floor.- Add an
**Extra 5 %**Quantity of tiles for**wastage compensation**.

Nos. of Tiles = 222 + 5 % Wastage

= 222 + (222 x 0.05)

= 222 + 11 = **233 nos.**

## How to Calculate How many tiles I Need for the Floor?

Now, we will **calculate **the number of tiles **needed **for a floor in sq. ft unit. (Unit of **measurement **is sq. ft.)

**Step- 1 Measure Area of Room or Floor**

- Take the
**length**and**width**measurement of your room in**feet unit.** **Suppose**,**Length**of the room floor is**20 ft.**and the Width of the**room floor is 15 ft**.- So, it is
**a 20 ft. x 15 ft. Room.**

**Step – 2 Calculate the Area of the Room or Floor**

- The area can be
**calculated**by just**multiplying**the length and width of the**floor together.** - So, Area =
**Length x Width**= 20 ft. x 15 ft**. = 300 sq. ft.**

**Step – 3 Measure the Size of Tiles**

- Take
**measurements**of tile selected or**propose**to be installed in a**given**flooring area. - Let’s take the
**size**of the tile as**2 ft. x 2 ft.**(24-inch x 24 inches)

**Step – 4 Calculate the Area of the Tile**

- The tiles’
**area**can be calculated by just**multiplying**their**length and width**together. - Area of Tile = 2 ft. x 2 ft.=
**4 sq. ft**.

**Step – 5 Calculate the Numbers of Tiles Needed For a Floor**

- Nos. of tiles
**required**for a given floor area is**calculated**by diving the area of**floor**by area of one tile.

**Nos. of Tiles = Area of Floor / Area of One Tile**

= 300 sq. ft. / 4 sq. ft. = **75 Nos.**

**Note:** There are **always **chances of wastage because **sometimes **cutting is **required **in many areas. So, always consider at least** 5 % wastage**, while calculating the **number **of tiles needed for a **floor**.

Add an Extra **5 % Quantity** of tiles for **wastage compensation**.

**Nos. of Tiles = 75 + 5 % Wastage**

= 75 + (75 x 0.05)

= 75 + 4 = **79 nos.**

**How to Calculate Skirting Tiles | How to Calculate Running Feet of Skirting**

**Skirting quantity**is generally**measured**in the running meter. So, for**calculating**the number of skirting tiles required to**measure**the running**meter length**of the room.

**(Note: skirting is measured in running feet or running meter) **

Take the** size of the room** is **10 m x 8 m. **

- Now,
**Measure**the**Perimeter**or**Running meter length**of the room. - If you have the
**length**and**width**of the room, then you can easily**calculate**the running meter of the room by just**multiplying the length**and width twice and**summing**it.

**Running meter length of room*** *= (2 x 10m) + (2 x 8m) = **36m.**

- We have to
**deduct the length of the**doors because skirting is not provided on the door option. - Size of Door = 1 m x 2.1m, Length of door = 1 m.
- Actual Running meter length of Skirting = 36 m – 1 m = 35 m.
- So, 36 m is the running meter of the room on which
**skirting tiles**are required to**install**.

**How to Calculate Skirting Tiles For Room**

In **skirting tiles calculation**, a number of **skirting **tiles can be calculated by just **diving **the running meter **length **of the room by the length of the **skirting **tile selected.

Suppose, **skirting tiles size is 30cm x 7cm ( 0.30 m x 0.07 m)**

In the above **size **of tile** 0.30m** the length of tile and **0.07 m height** the tile.

**Number of Skirting Tiles **=** 35 m / 0.30 m = 116.66 Nos.**, **Correct it = 117 m.**

## FAQs:

### Q.1 How do I calculate how many tiles I need?

To calculate the number of tiles required for a floor we should know the area of the floor and the single tile. To do so simply multiply the length and breadth of the floor to know the area and repeat the same for tile. Dividing the area of the floor with the tile floor gives us the no. of tiles required for the floor. Round off it to the nearest integer.

### Q.2 How many 12 x 12 (inches) tiles do I need for 100 square feet?

12 x 12-inch tile has an area equal to 1 square foot, i.e 12-inches x 12 inches = 144 sq inches which is equal to 1 sq foot. Hence to accommodate 100 sq feet with tiles we will require** 100 such tiles of 12 x 12 inches.**

### Q.3 **What is the Standard Size of Flooring Tiles**?

Tiles for the floor are available in standard sizes of:**12 inch ×12 inch18 inch ×18 inch12 inch ×24 inch**

### How to Calculate Tiles Needed for a Floor

Multiply the **tile** length by the width to figure the area that one **tile** will cover in square inches. Divide the result by 144 to convert it to square feet. Then, divide the area you’re tiling by the square footage of one **tile** to **determine** how many **tiles you need**. Again, round up to the nearest whole number.

### How Many Tiles Come in a Box

**8 to 12 Tile per Box**The number of tiles in the box depends on tile size. In
