## 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.

**Note:**

Consider 5% wastages.

Similarly, you can also calculate tiles needed for walls.

Alot of thanks to our bloved for ,owning A loving heart giving out what you own.

Your engineering journal are highly appreciated. Thanks.

So much useful i am working as a finishing engineer please suggest me finishing tips

Thank you very much

So simple analysis Need more tips

About block, layout and concrete tips

May God increases you in knowledge Amen

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.

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.
