How To Calculate Number Of Tiles In A Room

How To Calculate Number Of Tiles In A Room:

Calculation of tiles needed for floors and walls is so simple and easy. in this post, I will discuss how to calculate no. of tiles required in a room. So let’s start.

Step 1- Calculate Area Of The Floor:

let the length of the floor = 14 feet.

Breadth of the floor = 12 feet.

∴ Area of floor = length of floor x breadth of floor = 14 x 12 = 168 sft.

Step 2 – Calculate Area Of 1 Tile:

There are different tile sizes such as 20cmx20cm, 30cmx30cm, 45×45, 60cmx60cm etc. In this calculattion we will use 60×60 cm tiles.

Length of 1 tile = 60 cm

Breadth of 1 tile = 60 cm.

∴ Area of 1 tile =  60 x 60 = 3600 cm² = 3.6 sft.

Step 3 – Divide Floor Area By Area Of 1 Tile:

∴ No. of tiles required = Area of floor/ area of 1 tile = 168/3.6 = 46.6 ≈ 47.

∴ 47 tiles are required for the above floor.


Consider 5% wastages.

Similarly, you can also calculate tiles needed for walls.

  1. Thank you very much
    So simple analysis Need more tips

  2. I stand to b corrected, I think one step is missing, you can’t just go to d market nd ask for 47 tiles, it’s sold in cartons, I think this should be d last step, make enquiries to know d total numbers of tiles in one carton (60*60cm tile) then divide d total tiles to b used by d numbers of tiles in one carton to get d numbers of cartons. Let’s say we have 10 of 60*60cm tiles in one carton, so 47/10=4.7cartons. thanks.

  3. I dont think 3600cm² will be 3.6ft², the calculation might be wrong, we can first convert the ft to cm before proceeding to calculate the area in cm² just like that. How ft makes a cm or how many cm makes a ft.

  4. The calculation is wrong
    14 ft by 12 ft is approximately 4.2m by 3.6m which is approximately 15.12 sqm.
    The area of a 60/60 tile is 0.36sqm.
    Therefore 15.12÷0.36 = 42 tiles

    In other way
    14 ft ÷ 2 = 7 tiles for the length
    12 ft÷ 2 = 6 tiles for breadth
    7*6 = 42
