Thinking of giving your kitchen or bathroom a refresh? Planning on revamping your hallway floors? Whichever room in your home you are buying tiles for, it’s important to measure properly so you get the right amount of tiles. It can be confusing working out the correct measurements so we’ve put together some tips to help you breeze through it.
When taking measurements be sure to use centimetres as most tile measurements are given in millimetres, centimetres or metres – so it makes it easier to keep it consistent.
As most walls tend to be square or rectangular measuring them is not too hard, you just need to remove any doors or windows from the overall measurement. If you are not tiling from floor to ceiling or wall to wall make sure you are only measuring up to where you want the tiles to stop.
For a simple square/rectangular room with no major obstructions it’s really easy to measure the floor.
Unfortunately most of us will not have a totally empty or simple room to work with so next we will look at how to measure the floor in a room with baths, showers, cupboards, etc.
All tiles on the London Tile website are sold per box, but there is a handy calculator on each page that allows you to enter the total m2 you need and works out how many boxes that equates to. Browse our range of wall tiles and floor tiles online or pop into one of our showrooms.2
