This tool calculates how many tiles you need to cover your floor or wall based on the area you provide.

## How to Use the Tiles Calculator

1. Enter the length and width of the room in meters.

2. Enter the length and width of a single tile in centimeters.

3. Enter the wastage percentage. This accounts for cutting tiles and mistakes. A common value is 10%.

4. Click the “Calculate” button to get the total number of tiles needed.

## How It Calculates the Results

The calculator first converts the tile dimensions from centimeters to meters. It then calculates the area of the room and the area of a single tile. By dividing the room’s area by the tile’s area, it determines the total number of tiles needed. Finally, it adds the wastage percentage to ensure you have enough tiles to cover mistakes or cuts.

## Limitations

This calculator assumes the room is a perfect rectangle and does not account for features like alcoves, fireplaces, or odd angles. It also does not consider the layout pattern of the tiles which can affect the number of tiles needed, especially in complex patterns like herringbone or diagonal arrangements. Always consult with a professional for precise measurements and requirements.
