How Do I Know How Many Tiles I’ll Need?

What You Need To Know When It Comes To Tiling a Space In Your Home

Whether it is your floors or walls, the most crucial element in the process is the preparation. Accurately measuring your area will help you determine just how many tiles are required for your project and help things run without complications. We have listed a few tips and tricks to ensure that you get the right amount of tiles every time!

How Big Is Your Space?

Firstly, you will need to determine just how big your space is. Start by measuring your floor space followed by wall space. From here you’ll need to convert meters and centimetres into square meters, this will make ordering your tiles easier. Our biggest tip when measuring is to do it twice, just to be sure.

Floor Plans

If you are taking your room’s measurements from the builder’s floorplans, be sure you have the most up to date version. Decide on the pattern and tiling technique you’re planning to use. This will influence the number of tiles you’ll need, as well as the grout patterns and width when determining final measurements.

When choosing tiles, be sure to bring your measurements and floor plans with you. The team at Aurees Tiles will be able to assess and assist you with your required amount.

Remember to take out the space of windows, but add in tiled skirtings and sills.

Always Order Extra

When ordering you should add an excess of between 10-15 percent to allow for breakages and spares. You’ll need to cut tiles to fit around aspects of your room, and the cut-offs may not be useful anywhere else, others may become damaged during transit or blemished. Even if you end up with extra’s they will often come in handy later down the track.

Consider Accessories

Also, consider any tiling accessories you may want to add to ensure your project has a professional finish. Things such as soap dishes, brass strips and step edges will finish off your tiling and give you a look like no other.
