How to measure your room ready for tile fitting
A quick guide to help you find the important measurements you need when planning to tile the floor of a room.
Measure the maximum length and width at the rooms' widest points, (measure to the back of the doorframe to allow the tiles to be fitted into the door).
Multiply the width measurement by the length measurement to give you an idea of the total square metres required, e.g. 2m x 4m = 8m². This figure can then be divided by the size of each tile to give an estimate of the number of tiles you will require.
If the room is not a regular shape, measure the size of any indentations, e.g. bath, bay window etc. This is important so that you don't buy more tiles than necessary, helping you to minimise the cost.
