Tile is flooring material. Tile is used for the smooth surface of the floor and wall. It is not very hard to calculate the total cost of tile in a room. Let us start our calculation to get the Cost of tile flooring step by step.

## Cost of tile flooring Calculation

**Step-1**

**1) Calculate The Area of the Floor**

**Area = Length x Breadth of Room**

**= 16 x 12 = 224 Sq. feet**

**Step-2**

**2) Calculate the Area of the Skirting**

Skirting is the border at the bottom of the wall to prevent the wall from dirt, water seepage, etc. It also makes the edge of the wall attractive.

**Area s1 = Length x Height**

**= 16’ x 4” x 2**

**= 16’ x 4/12’ x 2**

**= 10.66 Sq. feet**

**Area s2 = Length x Height**

**= 12’ x 4” x 2**

**= 12’ x 4/12’ x 2**

**= 8 Sq. feet**

**Step-3**

**3) Total Area of Tile Required**

**Area = Floor Area + Skirting Area**

**= 224 + 10.66 + 8**

**= 242.66 Sq. feet**

**Step-4**

**4) Add 10% Wastage**

**= 242.66 x 10% 0f 242.66**

**= 242.66 + 24.26**

**= 266.926 Sq. feet**

**Step-5**

**5) Total Cost**

**Cost = Total Area x Rate of tile per ****sq.feet**

**= 266.926 x 80**

**= Rs. 21,354.08**
