Calculating How Much Tile To Purchase

Figuring out how much tile to purchase is easy as 1-2-3.

1 – Measure the area you’re needing to tile. I broke it down into 8 different areas for our space.

2 – Use a Sq Ft Calculator to figure out the sq footage – obviii. Total the sq footage needed for each type of tile – We have to different types, Subway and Denali.

3 – Multiply the Sq footage needed by 10%. This will account for waste and give you wiggle room for each of the cuts. Bring this information with you when you go to The Tile Shop. THE END.

We had a half a box of Subway Tile and 2 sheets of the Denali Tile left over. When purchasing tile, make sure to ask about the store’s return policy – we were able to return everything except the Subway Tile (which was only $25 – not baddd).
