Tiles are very popular – they are durable and easy to maintain. They come in different designs and patterns and are available in many sizes. However, accurately calculating the number of tiles you will need for your walls or floors can be complicated. A tile calculator makes this job a breeze.

## How the Tile Calculator Works

**Our Tile Calculator tool takes many factors into consideration while calculating the number of tiles required. You need to furnish the following details:**

**Area Dimensions**: The length and width of the surface to be tiled (floor or wall).**Tile Dimensions**: The length and width of each individual tile.**Grout Size**: The size of the grout lines or gaps between tiles.

Once these figures are entered, the calculator lets you know how many tiles you will need and how many boxes (tiles usually come in boxes) you need to buy. The tool automatically takes into consideration factors like breakage of tiles and any other wastage.

The calculator can also be used to calculate the estimated cost of the tiles. You need to enter the price of a single tile. In case you have a box of tiles, mention the square footage the entire box covers. However, if you are using sheets, enter the size of the sheet.

Buy a few extra tiles – they will come in handy when broken tiles need to be replaced!

## How to Measure for Tiles

Measuring wall tiles is as simple as multiplying the length by the height to give you the square meters. Then you remove your deductions for doors, windows, and openings. This then gives you the total square meters for your area. Add some wastage on top and you have the area you will need to purchase.

In the example video, I show you how to do that quickly using the excel spreadsheet. Once you have worked out the quantities you need for the project, you can work out the cost of the job by finding out what the materials price is. Use your local tiles store or DIY warehouse to find out the cost of the tiling materials you need.

## Download Our Tile Calculator

**Download our Tile Calculator** for free and use it for your next project. For those who want to dive deeper into the details of tiling, we offer a mini course that covers everything from calculating tile quantities to estimating costs.

## Tile Cost Estimation Made Easy

The tile estimator will tell you at the bottom, the total cost of the tiling and the total cost per square meter so you can compare different tiling options you might be thinking about. Generally, wall tiles and floor tiles are different so that is why we have two separate calculators for you to use, again so you can compare.

In addition to helping you determine how many tiles you need, our calculator can also estimate the overall cost of your tiles. Here’s how it works:

**Price of Single Tile**: Enter the cost of one tile, and the calculator will give you a total cost based on the number of tiles required.**Cost of a Box**: If your tiles come in boxes, simply input the total square footage covered by one box, and the tool will calculate the price for your entire project.**Tile Sheets**: If you’re using tile sheets (common in mosaics or decorative tiles), enter the dimensions of the sheet to get an accurate estimate for both the quantity and cost.

This feature is incredibly useful for comparing different tile options and budgeting your project. It gives you a clear picture of the financial commitment and allows you to choose tiles that fit your design and cost preferences.

## Extra Costs to Consider During a Renovation

If you’re renovating, there are some additional costs to keep in mind:

**Waterproofing**: In wet areas like bathrooms or kitchens, waterproofing under the tiles is essential to prevent future damage.

**Removing Old Tiles**: Removing existing tiles can damage the underlying surface, leading to extra costs for disposal and potential wall repairs.

## Frequently Asked Questions

### How do I calculate the number of tiles I need?

Multiply the length and width or height or your wall or floor. This will give you the number of square meters you have. Then multiply the length and width of the tiles you propose to use this will give you the square meter area of the tile. Then simply divide the area by the tile area and this will give you the number of tiles required for that area.

### How do I calculate the amount of tile adhesive I need?

Again, multiply the length and width or height or your wall or floor. This will give you the number of square meters you have. Find the tile adhesive you want to use and check what the coverage of that adhesive is per bag or tub. The divide the area by coverage, and this will give you the amount of adhesive you require.

### Should I account for wastage when buying tiles?

Yes, it’s recommended to add around 10% extra tiles to account for breakage, cuts, or future repairs. This helps ensure you don’t run short during installation and have matching tiles on hand for replacements.

### How do I calculate tiles needed for irregular shapes or spaces?

Break the irregular shape into smaller, easily measurable sections (like rectangles or squares). Measure each section, calculate the area for each, and then add them together to get the total area. Use this total to calculate how many tiles you’ll need.

### How do I estimate the cost of tiles for my project?

After calculating the total number of tiles required, multiply this number by the price of one tile. If you are buying tiles by the box, calculate how many boxes you need based on the tile coverage per box and then multiply by the cost of a box. This will give you the estimated cost of the tiles for your project.
