This tool helps you calculate the square footage needed for your tile project.

**How to Use the Tile Square Footage Calculator:**

To calculate the number of tiles required to cover a specific area, follow these steps:

- Enter the length of the area (in feet).
- Enter the width of the area (in feet).
- Enter the length of one tile (in inches).
- Enter the width of one tile (in inches).
- Enter the percentage of wastage.
- Click the “Calculate” button to get the result.

**How It Works:**

This calculator computes the number of tiles needed by first calculating the area of the space in square feet and then converting the tile dimensions from inches to square feet. It then divides the total area by the area of one tile to determine the number of tiles needed. It also factors in a wastage percentage to account for cutting and breakage.

**Limitations:**

This calculator assumes that the area to be tiled is perfectly rectangular and does not account for additional complex shapes or patterns. Always purchase a few extra tiles to ensure you have enough due to cuts, mistakes, and future repairs.
