The tile calculator calculates number of tiles, total area to cover, and per unit cost of tiling

## Tile Installation Options:

Here are describing these parameters for the installation of tiles below:

## Formula For Tilling:

\(Tiling Area = Area\ Length × Area\ Width\)

\(Tile Area = Tile\ Length × Tile\ Width\)

**Tiling Waste and Gap:**

Number of Tiles = {Tiling Area/(Tile Length + Gap Size) × (Tile Width + Gap Size)} + Waste%

## Tilling Style:

The various tilling styles are:

- Thin-set tile estimation
- Mastic Material
- Thinset Material

## How do I Calculate How Much Tile I need?

To know how many tiles are needed for tiling. Multiply single tiles' dimensions to find how much area all tiles cover. Then divide the result by 144 to convert it into feet. At last, divide the total square footage of the area by a single tile area.

### Example:

Find how many tiles are needed for an area 14 feet long and 24” inches deep. The area of a tile is 8″ x 8″.

#### Solution:

Measure the area

inches into feet:

24”÷ 12= 2 ft

total area:

2 × 14’ = 28 sq ft

Measure the area of tiles:

Find tiles size in sq ft:

(8″ x 8″) ÷ 144 = 0.444 sq ft

Estimate tiles:

Tiles Needed

= 28 sq ft ÷ 0.444 sq ft

= 63 Tiles

**Example 2:**

How Much Tile is Needed for a 12x12 Room?

Area of Room = 12x12 = 144 square feet

Area of Tiles = 12 x 12 inches = 144 square inches

Area of Tiles = 12 x 12 inches = 1 square foot

Tile Needed = 144 square feet / 1 square foot

Tile Needed = 144 Tiles
