## How do you calculate mosaic tiles?

Multiply the width and height to find the total area in inches, then divide by 144 to find the amount of square feet needed (amount of inches in a square foot). For example, if your space is 48″ (width) x 18″ (height) = 864. 864/144 = 6 square feet. Be sure to measure every area that needs tile and add them together!

## How are tile sizes measured?

Multiply the tile length by the width to figure the area that one tile will cover in square inches. Divide the result by 144 to convert it to square feet.

## Are 12 inch tiles actually 12 inches?

Ceramic and stone tiles are also often sold in nominal sizes. The tag on a box of tile may say the tiles are 12×12. That means they are 12″x12″ in size – unless, of course, that measurement is a nominal one. In that case, those tiles are actually 11-7/8″ x 11-7/8″ in size.

## Are tile sizes accurate?

Tiles are commonly referred to by their “nominal” sizes which might not be the “true” measurement of the material. An example of this is when a 12″ x 12″ porcelain tile has a “true” measurement of 11-7/8″ x 11-7/8″.

## What are tile sizes?

As a rule, floor tile is typically 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch thick. Wall tile tends to be thinner and available in squares (3 inches to 6 inches). Mosaic tiles are usually the smallest tile, available in 2-inch squares. The most popular and readily available tile sizes are (in inches) 12 x 12, 16 x 16, 12 x 24 and 18 x 18.
