How-to: Work out Tiles per Square Metre

Working out the number of tiles need to fill a square metre is pretty simple!

This is how you do it – Example:

  • 1 Square Metre is 100 x 100 cm
  • 1 Tile is (let’s say) 30 x 60 cm

To work out how many tiles you need per m2, simply do this:

Times the width x height of a square metre and the same for the tile:

  • 100 x 100 cm = 10,000
  • 30 x 60 cm = 1800

Divide the tile by the square metre:

  • 10,000 รท 1800 = 5.55555556

Round that number up and you have 5.5 Tiles per SQM!

 

Update: Our store tilestop.co.uk now features a built in calculator for most products, just enter the M2 you require and the correct quantity will be calculated.
