We are installing marble tiles in our house. We have 360 square feet and the marble tiles we want to get are 16 x 16. How do I find out how many tiles I need for the amount of square footage I have?

Thanks

you want to multiply 16"x16" and that gives you 256 squaere inches.

then divide 256 square inches by the number of square inches in a square foot (144), and that gives us 1.7 square feet (rounded down).

then, divide 360 by 1.7 and that gives us 212 tiles needed (rounded up).

now you need to consider waste and extras for future repairs if any gets damaged becayse you always want some of the exact same , so i would add another 10% to raw footage.

so you should need around 212-233 dependsing on how you measured it, how you are laying it out, and considered waste and extras, if applicable to your.

If you run on a diagonal or do not make efficient use of your layout in cuts, then it could be on the higher end of that 212-233 mark.
