## How do you calculate the size of a room?

For a square or rectangular room, you will first need to measure the length and then the width of the room. Then multiply the length and width. Length x Width = Area. So, if your room measures 11 feet wide x 15 feet long, your total area will be 165 square feet.

## How many 12×12 tiles do I need?

Since a 12 by 12 ceramic tile is one square foot, the number of square feet equals the number of tiles you need to cover the floor space. However, you should allow for cutting tiles to fit or breakage, so add 20 percent to your measurement.

## How many 12×12 tiles do I need for 100 square feet?

When you are planning your project and purchasing supplies it is important to be able to estimate approximately how many tiles you will need based on the size of the space. For a 100 square foot tile project, you will need to install a total of 100 12×12 tiles.

## How do you measure a wall for tiling?

Here are seven steps to measuring your tile area: Multiply the height and width of each section. Add together all the sections and divide that number by 144 for the square footage. Subtract windows or benches from the total as appropriate. Add 10% overage, or 20% for our Moroccan Fish Scales (multiply by 1.1 or 1.2).

## What are standard room sizes?

## How do you calculate tiles?

Multiply the tile length by the width to figure the area that one tile will cover in square inches. Divide the result by 144 to convert it to square feet. Then, divide the area you’re tiling by the square footage of one tile to determine how many tiles you need.

## How do I calculate how many tiles I need?

Measuring your walls

- Measure the length of the wall area you want to tile.
- Measure the height of the wall area you want to tile.
- Calculate the area of the wall (Length x height)
- Now measure the window that’s on the wall.
- Now you need to subtract the area of the window from the wall.

## What is the actual size of a 12×12 tile?

If the 12×12 tile is measured nominally, meaning the tile is 11-7/8″x11-7/8″ in size, but the accent tile has an actual measurement of 6″x6″, the two tiles will not fit together properly. Instead, you will be left with uneven grout joints and gaps.

## How do you calculate tile for a shower?

Measure the Shower Area Start on one shower wall and use a measuring tape to measure the length as well as the width of the wall needing tile. Multiply the length and width together and divide by 144 to determine the square footage of that wall. Repeat for all other walls in the shower area.
