The concept is confusing but the math is pretty simple...
  • Tiles are sold by the square foot not by the tile..
  • Measure the room & round up to the next foot, ie.. 11' 6" just write it down as 12'
  • If the room has offsets or halls, just remember to treat it like another room & do the length X width of each area. Then add them all up.
  • Box will tell you how many sq feet is in a box, so you are paying by the foot, but buying by the box........
  • Each 16X16 tile is 1.778 sq feet
  • 16X16 tile will likely be packaged in a box with 9-11 pieces per box..
  • Usually about 14- 18 sq feet per box depending on the makers preferences...
  • By way of example if your room is 12X12 that's 144 sq feet,
  • Divide the sq feet by how many sq feet in the box & you know how many boxes..
  • Add about 7-10% to make sure you have enough....
  • THE FORMULA IS : area divided by sq ft per tile ie 225 sq feet of 18X18 tiles would take 10 tiles....
  • 12X12 is DUH 1 sq foot
  • 13X13 is 1.174
  • 18X18 tiles are 2.25 sq ft per tile
  • 20"x20" tiles are 2.778 per tile
  • 24X24 tiles are 4 sq ft per tile


Soooo once you know the sq feet you need, add a little for waste & breakage & ooops cuts & you will have enough..

The fact that a good tile setter starts in the middle of the room & works out also means you may have a fair bit of cutting one all the walls but a centered look is much better and likely allows you to use the pieces up.

How many 20x20 inch tile needed for 500 square feet?

500 sq feet = 500*12*12 = 72000 sq inches Each tile is 20*20 = 400 sq inches So, number of tiles required = 72000/400 = 180 This assumes that either the shape is such that only whole tiles are required or that all offcuts are used.

How many 20x20 inch tiles does it take to cover 1744 square feet?

Area of each tile = 20*20 sq inches = 400 sq inches. Area to be covered = 1744 sq ft = 1744*144 = 251136 sq inches. So minimum number of tiles required = 251136/400 = 627.8 is 628 tiles. That is the mathematical answer which assumes that almost all the offcuts can be used. If the area to be covere (MORE)

How many 8x8 inch ceramic tile will you need to cover 443 square feet?

443 square feet = 443*12*12 = 63792 sq inches Each tile = 8*8 = 64 sq inches So minimum number of tiles required = 63792/64 = 996.75 or 997. However, that assumes that almost all the offcuts can be used. In real life it would be sensible to have more tiles to allow for breakages and wastage.

How many 20x20 square inch tiles does it take to cover 280 square feet?

That depends on the shape of the 280 sq. ft. area. For example, if it is a rectangle 1 foot by 280 feet, you couldn't fit a single tile into it (I assume you mean square tiles that are 20 inches on each side) because 20 inches is more than 1 foot. But assuming the area is a rectangle who sides are a (MORE)

How many 16x16 square inch tiles do you need to cover 72 feet?

It is not possible to answer the question because the area to be covered is not specified. If the area to by covered is 72 feet x 0.25 inches, so that its area is 216 sq inches, then 1 tile should be sufficient. If the area to be covered is 72 feet by 2.5 inches, then 9 tiles will be enough. If th (MORE)

How many 13 x 13 inch tiles would it take to cover 36 square feet?

Theoretically, 31 tiles. 36 sq ft = 36 x 144 sq in = 5184 sq in 13 x 13 = 169 sq in 5184/169 = 30.67, so you'd need 30 tiles plus one to cut up for the extra bits. In practice this would be a silly and overly difficult amount of cutting up. 36 sq ft could be 3 ft by 12 ft, or 36 in by 144 in.To (MORE)
