How to calculate tile square footages?
How to Calculate Tile Square Footages:
- Start on one wall and use a measuring tape to measure in inches the length and the width of the wall needing tile.
- Multiply the length and width together and divide by 144 to determine the square footage of that wall or floor.
- Repeat for all other walls in the shower area.
- If you have a wall or floor that is not square, separate into area 1 and area 2. Add the areas together and repeat the process above.
96” H x 36” W = 3,456/144 = 24 sq ft. *10%(2.4) = Grand total 26.4 sq. ft.
It is recommended that you order additional materials to account for any cuts, corners, or wastage during installation. For vinyl, we recommend an additional 5% of your total square footage and an additional 10% for all other flooring materials.
