In Respect to your questions on how some parameters were obtained on the Tutorial Post On
For a start, i am going to make you understand that 400 x 400 simply means (400mm x 400mm), now this was converted to meters by dividing the 400 by 1000.
Thus 400/1000 = 0.4 (0.4 x 0.4 = 0.16m2)
HOW TO CALCULATE THE NUMBER OF TILES NEEDED FOR A ROOM USING THE 600 X 600 SIZED TILES
Now For Mr Oladipo Tunde’s Comment on my previous post, i am going to show you how you can calculate the number of tiles if your tile measures 600 x 600 (I have not really seen this kind of tiles though, but i will work it for you)
Now if you have a tile measuring 600 x 600,
The area of 1 tile would be 0.6 x 0.6 = 0.36m2
Now You need to know how many tiles makes up a packet for this class of tiles.
How Many Tiles are there in a carton for 600 x 600 tiles?
For a 600 x 600 Tiles, There are 4 pieces in a carton
So if Your Room is of the same dimension as 2.5m x 2.4m, having a total area of 6m2,
You need to understand that for the total area you can cover with a packet id 0.36 x 4 = 1.44m2
Therefore, to get the number of cartons you’ll need to buy for the room, we divide the total area of the room by the area of one carton of the 600 x 600 tile
So We have:
6/1.44 = 4.166 Cartons
As we know, you cannot buy a fraction from the shop and so you would need to buy 5 cartons
You are also going to need some pieces for the skirting which is among the many reasons why you need to buy 5 cartons.
Things You Must Have In Mind When Tiling Your Room
Please Note: You’re also going to need some extra piece of tile for the skirting since you need skirting to make the work a perfect one.
You are also going to Buy 2 Bags of Cement (Depending on the thickness of the mortar)…
You are also required to hire the services of an experienced Tiler…
