- Mar 21, 2018-

Regardless of which kind of decoration style, the home decoration must use the ceramic tile this kind of building material. According to the budget selection of ceramic tiles, we must also learn how to calculate the amount of tile.

There are many kinds of tiles on the market, and the price is quite different. A ceramic tile with a price of more than ten yuan is often chosen. Finally, the total price of tile will vary by several thousand or tens of thousands of yuan, which is because the relationship between tile consumption is not considered. So the Chinese tile net small editor today teaches everyone to calculate the method of the amount of tile, the method is very simple, only three steps, ensure that everyone can learn.

Step 1: calculate the area of tiles to be paving

The principle of calculating the amount of ceramic tile is to calculate the area needed to lay tile first, then divide the size of each tile, and finally get the number of tiles needed. To determine the area of the paving, we must first determine where the tiles are to be paved, and then the size of the area is measured by the ruler.

Generally speaking, the surface of the wall tiles is more common, and the top of the house is equipped with ceiling or ceiling, so it will not be used to tile. Living room, dining room and bedroom ground can choose ceramic tile or wooden floor, but the balcony, toilet and kitchen ground must use ceramic tile. If the ground is a regular rectangle or square, it only needs to multiply the measured length and width. If it is irregular shape, it needs to calculate the whole area first, then calculate the excess area and reduce the subsidy.

Similar to the ground, living room, dining room and bedroom wall surface can choose ceramic tile, paint or wallpaper, while balcony, toilet and kitchen wall face must use ceramic tile. Note that, because of a ceiling, kitchen and bathroom tiles do not need to covered the entire wall, if the floor height of 2.8m, so the wall just spread to the high 2.6m. Then the length of each wall is then measured.

Second step: select the size of the tile

We can choose the size of the tiles by determining the area that needs to be covered with ceramic tiles. Ceramic tiles can be divided into three kinds of wall brick, inner wall brick and floor tile according to its use. The size of the three kinds of tiles is not exactly the same. Because the exterior wall brick is used relatively little, so we only discuss the inner wall brick and floor tile this time.

The general dimensions of floor tiles include 30*30cm, 30*60cm, 33*33cm, 40*40cm, 60*60cm, 80*80cm, 1*1m, 1.2*1.2m and so on.  Larger space, such as living room, dining hall, etc., using 80*80cm or larger size ceramic tile can appear more high-grade atmosphere. Bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and balcony are suitable for 60*60cm or smaller size tiles.

The general size of wall brick is 10*10cm, 10*20cm, 20*30cm, 25*40cm, 30*45cm, 30*60cm, 40*80cm and so on. The dimension is smaller than that of floor tiles, and the main size is rectangular.  Either wall or floor tiles, select the size according to your budget (tile size more expensive) and choose room area.

Choose the floor tiles and wall tiles, but don't forget to calculate the number of kicking lines and waist pieces. Compared with floor tile, the calculation of skirting line and waist piece is much simpler. Directly dividing the length of wall into the length of skirting line or waist piece, we can get the number of required foot line and waist piece.

Third step: the way of paving for ceramic tiles

With the increasing decoration style, the tiles also have a variety of paving methods. Consumers can choose the best way to fit their own, to achieve satisfactory results, but also to show their own personality. The following small compilation of the selection of the most representative of the three types of paving for everyone to explain the amount of tile calculation method.
