Calculate your perimeter. Length + Width + Length + Width.
If you figured it in inches, divide by 12 to get linear feet. To figure square feet of border ( this will be important later), multiply the linear inches by the number of tiles in your border multiplied by a factor of .8 ( 4 tiles = 3.2", 5 tiles = 4", 10 tiles= 8") then divide all that by 144.
EXAMPLE: 100 linear inches of 6 tile border is 100" x 4.8"= 480 in2 / 144 = 3.33 ft2
Find your area in inches. Length x Width. Divide by 144 to get square feet. Subtract the square footage of the border if you're using a border.
We recommend 8-10% overage for waste and attic stock. Some installers insist on more; however, our tile is mounted to yield very little waste.
If all this makes your brain hurt, just send us the measurements. If you want a border, designate where you want that border to go so we can figure the corners correctly.
