Measure Your Surface

Measure the dimensions of the surface you would like to mosaic and calculate the area using the formulas from elementary school: **RECTANGLE AREA = length x width**. **TRIANGLE AREA = 1/2 x width x height**. **CIRCLE AREA = 0.785 x diameter x diameter**.

## How are mosaic tiles measured?

To do this start by measuring the width and height of each area, multiplying the width and height together to get a measurement in **square inches**. To convert this measurement to square feet you simply need to divide by 144.

## How many 60×60 tiles is 1 square meter?

## How do I calculate how many tiles I need?

## How many mosaic tiles are in a box?

## How do you calculate grout for mosaic tiles?

Find the line that corresponds to your tile size, **then divide that number into your square footage**. For example, if you’re using 12-by-12-inch tiles and the bag says it covers 60 to 70 square feet, divide 70 into 144 square feet, if your room is 12 by 12 feet.
