A quick guide on how to measure the area you want to tile
How many tiles do I need? Calculating a tiled area in square feet.
- To find out how many tiles you will need, measure the height of the area to be tiled, then measure the width. Then multiply the height by the width (so a wall 7 feet high by 4.5 feet wide would need 31.5 square feet. Do this for each wall to be tiled then add the total together to find out how many square feet of tiles your room will need.
- I recommend that you purchase 10% extra to allow for waste from cut tiles.
- NOTE: You do not need to know how many individual tiles you will need as tiles are purchased by the square foot/metre.
