This tool helps you calculate the total square footage required for your tiling project.

## How to Use the Tile Square Foot Calculator

1. Enter the length of the area you want to tile in feet.

2. Enter the width of the area you want to tile in feet.

3. Enter the length of a single tile in inches.

4. Enter the width of a single tile in inches.

5. Optionally, enter the percentage of wastage (recommended to cover accidental breakage and cutting errors).

6. Click the “Calculate” button to get the result.

## Explanation of Calculation

The calculator determines the total number of tiles required for a given area by performing the following steps:

– Converts the tile dimensions from inches to feet.

– Calculates the area of the space and the area of a single tile in square feet.

– Divides the total area by the area of a single tile to obtain the number of tiles required.

– Optionally adds the wastage percentage to account for breakage and cutting errors.

– Rounds up the result to ensure that you have enough tiles.

## Limitations

– This calculator assumes that all tiles are of a uniform size.

– Does not account for complex patterns or borders.

– Assumes that the area to be tiled is rectangular.

– Wastage percentage is optional but recommended to ensure accuracy.
