How To Calculate the Number Of Tiles Required to Tile Your Apartment, i am going to explain a few things here...

For a start, i am going to make you understand that 400 x 400 simply means (400mm x 400mm), now this was converted to meters by dividing the 400 by 1000.

Thus 400/1000 = 0.4 (0.4 x 0.4 = 0.16m

**HOW TO CALCULATE THE NUMBER OF TILES NEEDED FOR A ROOM USING THE 600 X 600 SIZED TILES**

Now For Mr Oladipo Tunde's Comment on my previous post, i am going to show you how you can calculate the number of tiles if your tile measures 600 x 600 (I have not really seen this kind of tiles though, but i will work it for you)

Now if you have a tile measuring 600 x 600,

The area of 1 tile would be 0.6 x 0.6 = 0.36m

^{2}
Now You need to know how many tiles makes up a packet for this class of tiles.

How Many Tiles are there in a carton for 600 x 600 tiles?

For a 600 x 600 Tiles, There are 4 pieces in a carton

So if Your Room is of the same dimension as 2.5m x 2.4m, having a total area of 6m

^{2},
You need to understand that for the total area you can cover with a packet id 0.36 x 4 = 1.44m

^{2}
Therefore, to get the number of cartons you'll need to buy for the room, we divide the total area of the room by the area of one carton of the 600 x 600 tile

So We have:

6/1.44 = 4.166 Cartons

As we know, you cannot buy a fraction from the shop and so you would need to buy 5 cartons

You are also going to need some pieces for the skirting which is among the many reasons why you need to buy 5 cartons.

**Things You Must Have In Mind When Tiling Your Room**

Please Note: You're also going to need some extra piece of tile for the skirting since you need skirting to make the work a perfect one.

You are also going to Buy 2 Bags of Cement (Depending on the thickness of the mortar)...

You are also required to hire the services of an experienced Tiler...
