## A How Do You Figure Out Square Footage for Tile ## How Do You Figure Out Square Footage for Tile

There’s a lot of math involved in figuring out the square footage for tile. If you buy online, chances are your tile is cut to fit the order. But what if you want to know the square footage of your own space?

- Measuring a Shower – Showers can be divided into rectangular sections (which is the easy part), but if you have a niche or a bench, that’s a few extra measurements to keep track of. Separate each section by the tiles you plan to use, grouping by material to calculate the square footage needed for all surfaces. Don’t forget to include the depth of the sides of niches and windows too! If you plan to have border tiles, calculate them the same way you measured for trim above, by measuring the perimeter of the shower area and dividing the number by 12 to determine the total linear feet of border tiles needed for your design!

Calculate the overage you'll need. You should never buy just the amount of tile you need since you also need a bit extra for cuts, waste, breaks, and mistakes. Multiply the square footage of the room by 10%, then add this amount to the total square of the room. This is the total amount of square footage you should buy. To continue with the example we started above, .10 x 120 = 12, and 120 + 12 = 122. We'll need 122 square feet of tile. If the space you want to tile is an unusual shape, draw a picture of the floor plan on a piece of paper, then separate the room into squares or rectangles (like I did in the diagrams on this page). Then measure each squared-off section separately, convert inches to feet (divide by 12; you'll probably end up with a decimal), multiply the length and width of each space, then add all these numbers together to find the total square footage.
