When it comes to tiling a room, getting the measurements right is by far the best way to prevent wasting time and money.

However, it can be challenging to estimate tiles' numbers that you'll require for house decoration. Also, you don't want to find out halfway through the work that there is a mess-up with tiles measurement.

So, knowing how to calculate square feet for tile is very important. But how to do that? In this guide, we will look into the most effective ways you can calculate square footage for tile.

So, without further ado, let's dive in.

The process is quite easy!

Have a look at how the measurement of the tile for square feet tends to work, as stated below, and rid all your confusion right away:

In most cases, you'll find the tile size and measurement on the box provided by the manufacturer. So check the levels in the package.

If you brought it without boxes, you have to measure it on your own. The process is simple, measure the length and width of the tile with a measuring scale.

Once you are done, note down the value.

The formula for finding the square feet is simply multiplying the length and width. But remember, both the measurements should be in feet unit.

**Tile Area = Tile Length x Tile Width**

Check out some of the examples we have made using the available tiles size range of our DBL tiles calculator:

**For 60cm x 120cm tiles:**

**Tiles area: ***Length x Width*

= 60 cm x 120 cm

= 7200 cm2

= 7.76 square ft

[ 1sq.ft equal to 929cm2]

**For 60cm x 60cm tiles:**

**Tiles area: ***Length x Width*

= 60 cm x 60 cm

= 3600 cm2

= 3.88 square ft

**For 40cm x 40cm tiles:**

**Tiles area: ***Length x Width*

= 40 cm x 40 cm

= 1600 cm2

= 1.73 square ft

Note that by clicking on "Select Tiles Size" on the DBL tiles calculator, you will find a list containing the size of the tiles available from DBL.

You may require to calculate the square feet for tiles for the following reasons:

- Tiles measurements given in other units such as centimeter or meter
- To estimate how many tiles needed for a project
- To find a cost estimation for buying tiles
- To reduce the wastage or avoid buying unnecessary tiles

Let's know how calculating the tile area can help you estimate the number of tiles required for a room.

The first step to follow is measuring the room. If your room is square and rectangular, all you have to do is measure the width and length of the space. And then multiply them. Thus, you will get the area of the space.

**Room Area = Room Length x Room Width**

Converting the area to the number of tiles is quite simple.

**Number of tiles required = Total room area / Area of a single tile**

__Let's assume, __

- Room Length = 15 ft
- Room Width = 10 ft
- The measurement of tile we will be using are 60cm x 60cm

**For 60cm x 60cm tiles:**

**Total room area = Length x Width**

=15 ft x 10 ft

= 150 sq ft

**Number of tiles required = Total room area / Area of a single tile**

= 150 sq ft / 3.88 sq ft

= 38.7 or 39 tiles

N.B: We have omitted the grout area in the calculation here. If you want to calculate it, you have to use the following formula:

**Tile Area = (Tile Length+Grout size) x (Tile Width+Grout Size)**

You can also use the DBL tiles calculator to do the task. Calculating tiles couldn't get any more simpler and easier!

**Note that it is a general estimation, and the calculation will get changed for a different-sized room. Similarly, the result will vary if you pick tiles of different sizes.**

Calculating the number of tiles needed to decorate an area is crucial. But more than that, the first step is vital. You will need to accurately measure the tile's square feet to get started with your work.

By using the DBL tiles calculator, you can easily calculate tile square footage. So, take your estimates and get to work. However, if you still find it difficult to calculate square feet for tiles, you can always seek our professional's help and support.
