No matter what kind of decoration style, ceramic tiles must be used in home decoration. According to the budget to choose ceramic tiles, we must also learn how to calculate the amount of ceramic tiles.

There are many types of ceramic tiles on the market, and the prices vary greatly. I often choose a tile with a price of more than ten yuan. In the end, the total price of the tile will vary by several thousand or tens of thousands of yuan when the whole house is calculated. This is because the relationship between the amount of tile is not considered. So ceramics today teaches you how to calculate the amount of ceramic tiles, the method is very simple, only three steps, to ensure that everyone can learn.

The first step: Calculate the area of u200bu200bthe tiles to be laid

The principle of the calculation method for the amount of tiles is: first calculate the area of u200bu200bthe tiles to be laid, and then divide by the size of each tile , And finally get the number of tiles needed. To determine the paving area, you must first determine which places are to be laid, and then use a ruler to measure the plane area of u200bu200bthe place.

Generally speaking, tiles on the ground and walls are more common, and the roof of the house is equipped with ceilings or suspended ceilings, so ceramic tiles are basically not used. The floor of the living room, dining room and bedroom can choose ceramic or wood floor, but the floor of balcony, bathroom and kitchen must use decking tile. If the ground is an ordinary rectangle or square, you only need to multiply the measured length and width; if it is an irregular shape, you need to calculate the overall area first, and then calculate the area of u200bu200bthe extra part, and reduce the compensation.

Similar to the ground, ceramic tiles, paint or wallpaper can be selected for the walls of the living room, dining room and bedroom, while ceramic tiles must be used for the walls of the balcony, bathroom and kitchen. It should be noted that because there is a suspended ceiling, the bathroom and kitchen do not need to cover the entire wall with tiles. If the floor is 2.8m high, then the wall tiles only need to be spread up to 2.6m high. Then measure the length of each wall separately.

Step 2: Choose the size of the tiles

Once we have determined the area to be laid, we can choose the size of the tiles. Ceramic tiles can be divided into three types: exterior wall tiles, interior wall tiles and floor tiles. The sizes of the three types of tiles are not exactly the same. Since exterior wall tiles are less used, we will only discuss interior wall tiles and floor tiles this time.

The general dimensions of floor tiles are 30*30cm, 30*60cm, 33*33cm, 40*40cm, 60*60cm, 80*80cm, 1*1m, 1.2*1.2m, etc. Larger spaces such as living and dining rooms, etc., use tiles of 80*80cm or larger size to appear more upscale; while for bedrooms, kitchens, bathrooms and balconies, it is suitable to use tiles of 60*60cm or smaller.

The general dimensions of wall tiles are 10*10cm, 10*20cm, 20*30cm, 25*40cm, 30*45cm, 30*60cm, 40*80cm, etc. The size is much smaller than that of floor tiles. , And it is still mainly rectangular. Whether it is wall tiles or floor tiles, choose the size according to your budget (the larger the tile size, the more expensive) and the room area.

After choosing floor tiles and wall tiles, don’t forget to count the number of skirtings and waist panels. Compared with floor and outdoor wood deck tiles walls, the calculation of skirting and waist is much simpler. Simply divide the length of the wall by the length of skirting or waist to get the required number of skirts and waists. .

Step 3: Choose the method of laying tiles used

With the increasing decoration styles, tiles also have a variety of laying methods. Consumers can choose the most suitable paving method to obtain satisfactory results while also showing their own personality. The following editor will select the three most representative paving methods to explain the calculation method of tile usage.

The first is horizontal and vertical paving.

When paving, pave the wall parallel to the side of the wall, and the bricks are aligned and do not leave seams. At the same time, the bricks are used. The caulking agent with similar colors is used for caulking. This paving method looks clean and tidy, and the rectangular tiles are laid horizontally or vertically, which can make the whole space appear spacious. The amount of tiles in this way is the easiest to calculate. Simply divide the area by the size of each tile, then take an integer, and add one or two more tiles as the loss.

The second is the diamond-shaped paving method.

Some people who like personality like the diamond-shaped paving method, which can make the wall and the ground look more distinctive, and you can see more differences. The same lines. To calculate the amount of tiles used in this paving method, it is actually not difficult. It is also to divide the area by the size of each tile, and then round up. The difference is that this method of paving is very demanding for the decoration master, and the loss of ceramic tiles will be relatively high, with a loss rate of 15%.

The third is the combined paving method.

Tiles of different sizes, styles and colors can be laid in a certain combination, showing different effects on the ground, avoiding single Tones and uniform laying methods, in key areas, such as hospitality areas, TV background walls, etc. can be used to decorate the edges with waveguide lines, and even use decorative paintings. This paving method is the most difficult to calculate. It is necessary to calculate the amount of tiles used in each area step by step, and then add 10%-15% of the loss, and finally add the amount of each type of tile together.

Xiaobian summary: The method of calculating the amount of tiles is divided into three steps. The first step is to determine where to use ceramic tiles, and calculate the area to be tiled (the direct length of the ground is multiplied by the width, and more compensation is reduced; the wall length is multiplied by the floor height minus the ceiling height); the second step is to determine each The size of the tiles used in the place where tiles need to be laid; the third step is to select the calculation formula according to the area, tile size and paving method (different paving methods have different losses). Clearly calculating the amount of tiles required for decoration can help us easily select the most suitable tile products according to the budget.
