This floor calculator tool helps you estimate the floor area and materials needed for your project.

## How to Use the Floor Calculator

This floor calculator helps you determine the number of tiles needed to cover a floor area. To use the calculator:

- Enter the length and width of the floor in meters.
- Enter the length and width of the tile in meters.
- Enter the waste factor percentage (default is 10%).
- Click the “Calculate” button to see the result.

## How It Calculates

The calculator works by computing the area of the floor and the area of one tile. It then divides the floor area by the tile area to determine the number of tiles needed. Finally, it adds a specified waste factor to account for cutting and breakage.

## Limitations

- The calculator assumes that the floor is a simple rectangle. Irregularly shaped floors will require additional calculations.
- It does not take into account pattern matching or special tile layouts.
- The waste factor is an estimate and may need to be adjusted based on specific circumstances.
