The tile calculator calculates number of tiles, total area to cover, and per unit cost of tiling
Here are describing these parameters for the installation of tiles below:
Size
Material
Layout Pattern
\(Tiling Area = Area\ Length × Area\ Width\)
\(Tile Area = Tile\ Length × Tile\ Width\)
Tiling Waste and Gap:
Number of Tiles = {Tiling Area/(Tile Length + Gap Size) × (Tile Width + Gap Size)} + Waste%
The various tilling styles are:
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.
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″.
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
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
