# Calculate Floor Tiles (Quantity & Estimation)

Find how many tiles are needed for given an tile-size and area.

The tiles calculator will compute how many tiles are needed for given tile size and area. It will estimate how many tiles to buy by calculating the total floor area to be cover and dividing that number by the size of one tile.

## Example:

Actual room size: 10 ft x 12 ft = 120 ft^{2}

The tiles size : 6 in x 6 in = 36 in^{2} = 0.25 ft^{2}

The number of tiles Needed = (Actual room size) / (The tiles size)

The number of tiles Needed = 120/0.25 = 480

### Estimating tile quantities

We must include the waste factor 10-15% that may vary based upon tile size, layout, configuration of room, patterns, etc.

Formula measuring the floor area for tiles = Length x Width + Waste = Area Needed(Area-size)
