Formula – How to calculate tile Quantity

Basically, we need to know some measurements in terms of cm, mm, feet, inches for tiles and as well as your rooms. It is better to measure in terms of feet because it is very useful for labours also. Ok, let’s jump into the calculation.

For Example,

Consider you are going to use a 600 x 600 mm (2 x 2 feet) tiles for your room installation.

1. Area Calculation of tiles

Length of the tiles – 600 mm (2 Feet)

Width of the tiles – 600 mm (2 Feet)

Area of Tiles (in square feet) – 4 Sq. Feet

So, Area covered by one single 2 x 2 feet tile is 4 Sq. Feet

2. Area Calculation for your room

Length of the room need to be tiled – 4572 mm (12 feet)

Width of the room need to be tiled – 3048 mm (10 feet)

Area of Room needs to be tiled – 120 Sq. feet

3. No. of tiles required for Installation

No. of Tiles Quantity = Total area of the room / Area covered by single tile

                                     = 120 / 4

                                     = 30 Nos.

So, for flooring a 10 x 12 feet room you required 30 Nos. of 2 X 2 Feet tiles for installation. But this is not the exact tile quantity because due to some bathroom fittings, furniture’s, sanitaryware’s, etc. you may require tile wastage percentage before your installation.
