# What is the easiest way to calculate tile for a bathroom?

Before to calculate the tile for the bathroom, you need to figure out some things**.** For example, *what tile to buy* and what color, will have to fit in the picture, will finish on the walls only to present *the tile* or it will be complemented by the decor.

Try to find out, *what tile* should lay on the bathroom floor, and which will go on the wall.

## Floor tiles for bathroom

Floor usually choose one of the following installation options:

- Classic the ends of the products placed along the walls.
- Diagonally the ends of the spread angle of 45 degrees.
- Chess diagonal laid ceramic different colors in compliance with the order.

Tile on wall for bathroom

For the walls choose *the types of processing*:

- standard straight-lay tile parallel to sexual surface;
- standard curbs (1 wide or narrow, wide);
- diagonally;
- checkerboard (regular or diagonal).

What you need to know *the type of pickup*? For some types (for example, diagonal or patterned) material consumption will be increased due to the fact that it is a lot of fitting cut.

## General principles of calculations of the tile

How *to calculate tile for a bathroom*? Here are the General principles of the calculations for all rooms.

- Measure the length and height (in cm) of all the walls separately, where it will be laid tile.
- Measure the width and length on the floor.
- Area of the wall where the door is placed or bath, minus their size.
- Determined by the size of the elements laying on the floor 33 of 33 or 40 on 40, etc.), for cladding (20 to 30, 25 to 33, etc.)
- Make a preliminary calculation sq. m.
- To clarify the think piece the number of tiles.
- The resulting figure for the materials multiplied by 10% (stock-to fit at the walls for trimming, drawing, fracture, etc.).

## Approximate calculations for the floor

For the purpose of calculating products for masonry sexual take approximate values:

The floor has a width of 150 cm, length 170 cm dimensions 1 item 40 40. Styling of the model, the material is the same color. To determine the number of tiles, divide the width of the floor (150 cm) to a face element (40 cm). The result is a 3.75 (number of elements in a row across the width of the floor). Rounding to the nearest integer, will receive 4. Next, calculate how much work rows along the length of bath: 170 divide by 40 and get 4, 25 series, will take over the integer 5. Then calculate the number of tiles that will need for 5 rows: 4 multiplied by 5, making 20 pieces. Add the stock a couple of pieces. So, you need to purchase 23 ceramic tiles.

When performing *the calculation of the number of ceramic tiles on the floor* can be made a blunder. The sexual area of the surface equal to 1.70 cm x 1.50 cm=2.55 m. sq Divide it by the area of one product (0,4mh0,4m) 0,11 sq. m. and Get 24. In other words, the shortage of floor tiles would be 4 pieces (plus 2 reserve), a total of 6 pieces. In routine calculation takes into account the cutting elements during installation.

## Walls bath

*To count the number of tiles for the walls in the bathroom* of the calculation is advantageously carried out separately for each wall. The height of the walls is equal to 270 cm. Divide it by the height of the tiles 33 cm and get the 8 and 18. Rounded to the nearest whole 9 pieces in one row in height. Next, 150 cm (width of the wall) divide by 25 cm (width) = 6 pieces across the width. 6 multiply by 9 and get the 54 units dimensions 33 by 25 cm will be needed for walls with a width of 150 cm. Similar calculations will get 63 tiles needed for walls that have a length of 170 cm.

Subtract the doorway

For counting products needed for finishing the wall where the doorway is, you have to calculate the number of elements falling on the front door. And the resulting figure deducted from the amounts to the opposite wall.

For example, the doorway height is 200 cm. Divide this value by 33 cm (height of the tiles) of 6.06. Rounding produced in the direction of a smaller number of 6 pieces. The width of the opening (70 cm), divide by the width of a single element 25 cm 2.8 cm round down to 2 pieces for the width.

6 multiplied with 2, is 12. Subtract 12 from 54, or 63, which would correspond to the tile or 51 or 42 elements. If the calculation for a wall with a bath involves the use of tiles only in the bathroom, then the calculations will be similar to the wall with the doorway. If the bathroom will not affect the veneer and the wall is completely covered with tiles, the calculations are carried out in a standard way.

## Counting the required weight of the grout

*After installation of the tile* do the grouting. Which is identical in content with the basic coating mixture or contrast to him. To implement the calculation of the number of tile grout you need to find out the amount of filled voids. The recommended joint width is equal to 1,5-3 mm. the Depth corresponds to the thickness of the tile, it used a single coefficient taking into account the shrinkage of the material, the degree of humidity, etc..

For calculation of the volume of grout half the perimeter of the tile is to be divided by its area. The result, multiply with the thickness. Next, the seam width and the value 1.5. So counts the amount of kg of grout mixes required to process 1 sq.m of processing.

For example, the joint width of 2-3 mm, the area of the product of 0.04 sq. m 1 kg grout mix enough for a 3.5 sq. m.

But again, not a very effective method is the calculation of the area of surfaces for masonry coating. And this method is not exact, especially in a small room. For small spaces use the formula calculations does not make much sense. The best option to count in volume through the ranks.

In approximate calculations above to facilitate computation and understanding of their principle, the initial data was suggested the dimensions of a standard flat and plain ceramic tiles (without borders or decoration). However, it is not difficult to calculate the number of tiles with different colors, borders, etc.
