calculating square feet / square foot calculations
O.K., you say you're ready to figure out your square footage for your ceramic
tile floor, ceramic tile backsplash area, or other ceramic tile design. Follow
the easy steps below to configure your square footage:
Measure the length of the
area. For example 5.11 feet (71").
Measure the width of the
area. For example 18"
Multiply these two
inches together. For example 71" x 18" = 1287".
The result is the total number of square inches (SI).
Divide this number by 144,
the total SI in one square foot (SF). For
example 1287 / 144 = 8.875. This number is the SF of the area.
ceramic tile fireplace surround calculation
You've made an extremely intelligent decision. You've decided to purchase
some gorgeous Tiles with Style ceramic tile leaves for your tile
fireplace surround. Now you just have to calculate the fireplace surround
tile square footage.
Measure the width & height of the top area of
the fireplace surround. For example 12 tall x 46.11
Multiply the two numbers; the width x the
number of the height. For example 12 x 46.11 =
This is the total square inches (SI) of that
Divide the SI number by 144. (The
total square inches in one square foot.) For
example, 553.32 / 144 = 3.8425.
This is the total square footage of the area
above the fireplace opening.
Now do the same square footage calculation for
the left side.
Measure from the floor, up to the bottom
of the top surround area, as shown in the diagram above.
For example, 24" tall.
Measure the width from left to right.
For example, 10.6" wide.
Calculate the square footage as in steps 1-3
above. For example: 24 x 10.6" = 148.40 / 144 = 1.03
Take the total square footage from the left
surround side and multiply the total square footage by 2,
because there are two sides to the fireplace surround. For example
1.03 x 2 = 2.06 SF
- Add the sides and top square footage together for a grand total. For
example 3.8425 + 2.06 SF = 5.9 SF.
- Always order a little extra, lets round it off to 6 square feet.
When we measure out your leaf order square footage, we push the leaf tiles
tightly together. This actually gives you a surplus of ceramic tile leaves. We
don't want you to run out. Plus, it gives you a little extra for another
