Guide

1

Determine what you are going to paste over the surface.To calculate the number of tiles PVC flooring, it is necessary to know the area of the premises.Measure the length and width and multiply.Skirting previously better off.

2

Arriving at the store, find the size of the tiles.It makes sense in any case to take a ruler and measure the sample.Dimensions must be written on the price tag and the accompanying documentation, but it is different.With square tiles face often enough to
measure one side.Lift it into the box and get thus the area of one tile.

3

Divide the surface area of one square tiles.So, you know, how many tiles you need to cover a particular surface.It may happen that the number of fractional turn.Round it in up to the nearest whole number.Tile PVC is very easy to cut, so nothing bad will happen if one of the strings does not have to pack the whole tile, and halves or quarters.

4

number of ceramic floor tiles (eg in the bathroom) is calculated the same way.Sex is typically a relatively flat surface, so the problems with the measurements in this case does not arise.If you have to cover a wall with ceramic tiles, first prepare the surface.

5

lined the walls.Determine the surface where you stick tiles.Spend on the wall 2 vertical lines.The most convenient way to do this with the help of a plumb.These lines come in handy not only for payments, but also to repair itself, so do it qualitatively.At the correct height a horizontal line.

6

Measure the height and width of the future surface and multiply the dimensions.Then proceed in the same way as in the case of PVC tiles.Find 10% of the result and the total number of Priplyusuet, if you're going to lay tile directly.To lay at an angle stock must be more, by 15%.Throw a couple of per cent of that number some tiles may break.

7

To determine how many packs of tiles you need, find out how many pieces are in one pack.Divide this number to the total number of tiles you need.Round the result to the nearest whole number in a big way.

Note

In any case it is necessary to see how right angles indoors.It may be that at the corners of the tiles have to be cut into pieces and the pieces join.Therefore it is better to have 2-3 extra tiles.

Helpful Hint

If you're going to lay out a pattern, the total number of tiles will be the same as usual.But it is necessary to count separately, what area is supposed to cover the tiles of a different color.
