## Measuring up for wall tiles can be and usually is a tricky job, but if done
correctly, can help to avoid running out of tiles or buying too many tiles and trying to return them.

To Measure a Wall Area in Square Meters –

• Measure the Height in Meters
• Measure the Width in Meters
• Multiply the Height by the Width
• Allow another 10% for wastage by multiplying your answer by 1.1

2.5 x 2.6 = 6.5 x 1.1 = 7.15 SqMts Required

This needs to be completed for each wall that is going to be tiled (Usually 4 walls per room).
Any Windows or Doors can also be measured up and subtracted from the
Total Square Meters of tiles required for the job.

This area will normally be rounded to the nearest box depending on the tile chosen.

To Measure a Wall Area in Square Yards–

• Measure the Height in Feet and Inches e.g  8ft
• Measure the Width in Feet and Inches e.g. 6ft
• Multiply the Height by the Width e.g. 8 x 6 = 48
• Allow another 10% for wastage by multiplying your answer by 1.1 e.g. 48 x 1.1 = 52.8
• Divide your total by 9 to work out the Square Yard Measurement – 52.8 / 9 = 5.86 SqYards

If your wall area is not a perfect square or rectangle, divide up the wall
into sections and measure each section in turn and this will give you an accurate measurement.
