Tile is a very popular choice for flooring and many backsplash projects. This is because they are really durable, easy to clean and have endless design possibilities.
Since tiles come in so many different shapes & sizes, the installed patterns being infinitely variable, it can be more complicated to accurately estimate how much tiling you will actually need for another floor and your wall coverings.
The tile calculator allows you to estimate the number of tiles that is required to cover a floor or a wall. This tile calculator also takes into account the gap/grout between tiles. The results will also factor and compute the 5% wastage during the installation of tiles.
This tile calculator gives rapid and effortless results. Irrespective of whether it is for walls or floors, large or small places, it is a quick and easy way to determine the cost and help you stay within your budget.
So, while measuring for floor tile the rule is:
Length x Width + Waste = Amount Needed
The waste factor will vary based upon tile size, layout, configuration of room, patterns, etc. Typical waste factor is about 10%. Add another 15% for tile being installed diagonally or for a room with lots of jogs and corners.
