In the beginning, we will calculate the no. of tiles used for the floor in an sq. m unit.

### Step-1 Calculates the Area of the Floor.

- Take the distance and breadth of your floor in the meter unit.
- Let the length is 11m, and the width is 10m.
- So it is an 11m x 10m room.

### Step-2- Measurement the Area of the Floor

- Measure the width and the length of the room and multiply the two measurements together.
- So, area =length x width = 11m x 10m =110 sq.

### Step-3 Calculate the Size of the Tiles.

- Take measurements of the tile chosen to design in the flooring area.
- Suppose the size of tile is 0.40 x 0.40 (40cm x 40cm)

### Step-4 Calculate the Area of the Tile

Area of tile= 0.30m x 0.30m = 0.9 sq. m.

### Step-5 Calculates the No. of Tiles Necessary for a Floor

- Nos. of tiles = area of floor/ area of one tile = 90/0.9 = 100 nos.
**Note-**always possibility of damage because sometimes piece needs some areas. So, always count 5% extra diffusion while measuring the tiles required for a floor.- Nos of tiles= 100 +5% wastage= 100+ (100 x 0.05) = 100 + 5 = 105 nos.

## How to Calculate Number of Tiles Needed for a Room?

Here, the following steps for caution of tiles.

- In skirting tiles measurement, a no of avoiding tiles is measured by dividing the room’s constant meter by the length of the skirting tile chosen.
- Let skirting tiles size is 20cm x 5cm.
- The above size tile is 0.20m in the tile length and 0.05m in the tile height.
- of skirting tiles= 36m/ 0.20m = 7.2
- Nos of skirting tiles= 8 m.

## How to Calculate Skirting Tiles?

Here, the following steps for caution of skating tiles.

- The skirting amount calculates in the meter. So, to measure the no of skirting tiles needed to calculate the length of the floor.
- Take the measure of the room is 10m x 9m.
- Then, calculate the perimeter of the room.
- If you have the length and width of the room, then multiply the length and width twice and add it.
- Constant meter length of the room= (2 x 10m) + (2 x 9m) = 38m
- We have to subtract the length of doors because skirting does not offer the door choice.
- Size of door = 2m x 2.2m, length=2m.
- Absolute meter length of skirting = 38 m – 2m = 36m.
- So, 38m is the running meter of the room.
